THE OFFICER AND THE BOSTONER by Rose Gordon is an fast paced Western Historical Romance set in 1845 Texas. #1 in the "Officer" series. What a beginning! Filled with passion,misunderstandings,secrets, and love. Join Allison Pierson,a well to do Bostoner,caught stranded in a military fort in Indian Territory and Captain Wes Tucker, a Military man from a wealthy Charleston family. Wes insists she must marry in order to stay in the fort,she accepts his proposal to marry him until her true intended comes to rescue her. What follows is a bit of humor and lots of passion. Allison soon learns she is in love with Wes and he with her. But enter her intended,who is only after her money. She will do anything to keep Wes safe and protected from her intended's stronghold. Wes, is wealthy in his own right,but Allison does not know this. If the Indians don't kill them Allison's food just might. For she knows nothing of housekeeping,she was raised as a socialite,enter the fun and laughter. Another hit for Ms. Gordon! She is an awesome storyteller who carries off her plots without a hitch. Her characters are engaging as well as realistic for the era.She has vivid descriptions that make the reader feel they are actually there. An intriguing story with a few twists and turns. Loved it!! If you enjoy historical romance, humor,Western love than "The Officer and the Bostoner" is the one for you to read. You will not regret your choice. Received for an honest review from the author and Net Galley.

    Old fashioned romance

    Old fashioned romance. Lots of scenes to see how they fall in love. Loved that Wes was a virgin also... heros are usually man whores.

    Enjoyable, cozy read.

    I'm a big fan of historical/western romance and this was a pleasant read. I thought Wes was a likable guy, upstanding, noble and kind. I really enjoyed his character and the banter he shared with Allison. Allison's prideful ways frustrated me a bit in the beginning, but she came around towards the end of the story. Wes probably wouldn't have fallen for her if she were a complete pushover. While I liked the book, it wasn't a page turner for me and I found myself putting it down a lot. It was still worth the time I took to read it and I was glad I finished it. I am curious about the other three officers and will return to the series to find out how they fair in their searches for love.

    Nice..ok

    Nice read but sometimes a little slow and tedious. At times it was bit lengthy when she couldve easily got to th point. It felt as if a teen wrote some parts of the story. Dont know if ill be reading anymore of her books.

    I agree

    With a lot of what "perhaps I had a different copy" and if I were the author I would take these points seriously. If this is a sample intended to enticeyou to buy subsequent books; then it certainly didn't do its job.
