Editorial Reviews

Novel's Corner - Rebekah Haynes

Tender Romances form between fiery and independent women and handsome rangers and sheriffs in this interesting collection of stories. If you love western romances these stories will be sure to touch your heart as romance blooms in the west.
babsbookbistro.net - Barbara Hightower

The book is wonder and I would recommend this read to anyone who likes romance and western romance.
blogspot.com - Lisa Johnson

These stories are very enjoyable and entertaining when sitting outside with a soft drink, some shade with some time on readers’ hands.  They each are faith-filled as well as unique in some ways, but there is something else that ties them together.
Britt Reads Fiction - Brittany McEuen

This is a very sweet collection of many different types of love stories. I enjoyed the many different stories set out in the old west of Texas as these men and women found love through their struggles.

This was a great book couldn't put it down once I started reading it! Loved the characters and the stories just wish that the stories were a little longer! It took me only 3 days to read! This is a great book for those who love to read inspirational romance novels like I do! This book is also great for those who love old time western romances too!

The last few stories only had a small connection to Texas, but other than that, great collection of stories.

This is a very sweet collection of many different types of love stories. My very favorite was Serena's Strength. There were a couple of stories that I just didn't get as connected to the characters as I would have liked. However, overall, I do recommend this book as a good choice for readers who like bride stories (as I do). The strength that many of these characters in the various stories exhibited and the growth of many of the characters in their walks with God was refreshing. I enjoyed the many different stories set out in the old west of Texas as these men and women found love through their struggles. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
