Overview

From four acclaimed authors come four all-new novellas featuring the rugged men of the West and the women who want them…
From Jodi Thomas...Callie has done a lot of crazy things, but it’ll take one more to prove she isn’t nuts: find a husband, fast! Her only requirement: he has to be taller than she is and swear not to have her committed during their ruse of a marriage.
From Jo Goodman...Felicity Ravenwood was raised to be independent-minded, but when this runaway bride opposes her father’s choices, it is up to Nat Church to bring her around. But he doesn’t count on springing her from jail, holding her hostage, or falling head over boot-heels in love.
From Kaki Warner...Two strangers on a train have more in common than they know—both have hidden purposes and ties to a Nebraska bank robbery. But when their schemes unravel, they find a bigger surprise awaiting them than either could have imagined.
From Alison Kent...When runaway New York socialite Maeve Daugherty joins her father’s bodyguard Zeb Crow on his personal mission of revenge, what was a slightly scandalous new life as a bookkeeper for an infamous San Antonio brothel becomes downright dangerous. But that’s not stopping Maeve from having the time of her life.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
12/01/2013
The unpredictable, rough-and-tumble aspects of life in the Wild West come through in this diverse quartet of engaging novellas. A resourceful heroine, anxious to wed, is not nearly so crazy as people think in Thomas's touching "Crazy Callie"; the hero of Jo Goodman's fictional dime novels mentioned in her other works springs to life—and falls in love—in her engaging "dime novel" "Nat Church and the Runaway Bride"; a bold bank robbery links two strangers on the train west in Kaki Warner's clever, sexy "The Scent of Roses"; and a fugitive New York heiress and the security guard who tracks her down at a Texas brothel are caught up in violence in Alison Kent's "The Hired Gun's Heiress." VERDICT This excellent, action-packed anthology from some of the genre's favorite writers should please fans and garner new ones. Thomas, Goodman, Warner, and Kent live in Amarillo, TX; Colliers, WV; Washington State; and Houston, respectively.

    Boots Under Her Bed is the new historical romance anthology from

    Boots Under Her Bed is the new historical romance anthology from four well known romance writers, Jodi Thomas, Jo Goodman, Kaki Warner and Alison Kent. These four short novella's offer readers who have never read these authors a chance to see if their writing style appeals to them. It also offers readers who know and love their work a bonus. A short work that will entice them to read more from their favorites.

    What I liked and didn't like, all in one:

    Boots Under Her Bed is a very well written and put together anthology set in the West. Jodi Thomas is well known for writing Western Romance, as is Alison Kent. I was unfamiliar with Kaki Warner or Jo Goodman's work when I began this book, but I'm pleased to say that both of their novella's fit the theme and kept me interested. 

    Crazy Callie is Jodi Thomas' offering in Boots Under Her Bed. It's basically a marriage of convenience story with a crazy twist, literally. If Callie doesn't find a husband her step-father will have her committed. I liked the urgency of this story. Thomas makes the reader believe there might be some question about this gal's sanity and it adds an interesting element to the story. Given that this is a novella, I wanted more time with Callie, she is definitely a character that might deserve a full length story of her own. One of my favorites of the anthology.

    Nat Church and the Runaway Bride comes from author Jo Goodman. This was my first experience with Goodman's writing and I was pleasantly surprised. This story had a lot of potential with a great hero and a bride who would do just about anything to escape marriage. The novella included a jail break, a hostage situation and true love. I liked the author's voice, this story was simple and to the point and showed great clarity. I was intrigued by this one and would definitely read more from this author now that I am aware of her.

    Kaki Warner's story, The Scent of Roses was probably my favorite of the anthology. I had never read her work before, so that really surprised me. You have two characters who are both trying to solve a crime and end up thinking that each other may be the culprit. I liked the train setting and the fact that the hero just couldn't seem to keep his illicit thoughts to himself. Warner uses a great deal of wit and humor in this story. It was very entertaining and Warner obviously knows what she's talking about when it comes to writing a good Western themed romance. A very good read.

    I have enjoyed Alison Kent's work for some time. She has a way with a love scene that is unparalleled in Western themed romances, and I was excited to read her contribution to the anthology, The Hired Gun's Heiress. Great title, a very likable hero in Zebulon Crow, and your typical socialite gone astray in Mauve. It had all the right elements, but didn't seem to get off to a good start. I think this is a story that would have benefited from a longer length, in that, it needed that set up time and background that is usually sacrificed in shorter fiction. It was still a good read, but perhaps not the best showcase of this author's work.

    Overall I am happy that I got a chance to review this book. I was introduced to two new authors in Jo Goodman and Kaki Warner and got to read two good stories from old favorites in Jodi Thomas and Alison Kent.
