Overview

Hope Montoya knows someone is poisoning her, but who? She suspects her mother was also poisoned and knows her father was murdered. Who wants her family eliminated? She vows to fight! She realizes she won’t last the eight  months until she turns twenty-five and her uncle no longer  controls her or her estate. Never will she be dominated by a man as she was by her father, as she has seen her mother and grandmothers dominated. If she marries, she gains control now, but only if she weds a man she can trust. Only one man meets her requirements. Can she trust him to protect her and capture the killer...but then to leave?

Micah Stone has been in love with Hope since the first time he saw her. But he was accused of her father’s murder and surely would have hung if not for his two brothers’ aid. Most in the community still believe him guilty. But the drought has him too worried about water for his dying cattle to care about his neighbors’ opinions. When Hope proposes a paper marriage in exchange for land on the Brazos River and much needed cash, her offer rubs his pride raw. His name may be Stone, but he’s not made of it. He can’t refuse her for long, and so their adventure begins. He and Hope have to stay alive and discover the killer before they become victims in the deadly assaults.

Caroline Clemmons has written a wonderful story part romance, part mystery, all treasure. Finely crafted it kept me reading to the end. A very enjoyable book, one I highly recommend. I hope to read more of her Stone Brothers stories very soon. Thank you, Caroline Clemmons.

This started off with a bang where Hope thinks she is being poisoned and puts it to the test. With everything showing she is right leaves her with the question who and why. She is at a loss thinking maybe it is her family since her parents death she now owns everything. Would her aunt and uncle kill her to get all her wealth? She doesn’t know who to trust or who to turn to it could be anyone in her home. She decides to take her life back in hand no way will another man control her or hurt her as her father has done to her and her mother. She must find a man she can control giving him what he wants most in the world at the same time she will take over her land and money. First he must agree to her conditions which will be laid out for him to sign. She knows he is the man to keep her save and hopefully find the killer. The only problem being just about everyone thinks he killed her father. Micah is shock when a man comes to him asking him to met Hope who he has loved from afar for many years. One night he held her in his arms as they dance it was the best night of his life until her father put an end to it. He wasn’t a very nice man when he put him in his place. He never stopped loving Hope but when she ask him to marry her he thinks his dreams has come true until she said it would be a marriage in name only. He said NO WAY NO HOW until something happens to change his mind as he runs back to Hope making her his bride. Can he keep his promise to keep his hands to his self or will he throw it all away to take the women he loves and make her his wife. Hope is very weak and is in need of a lot of rest but as Micah watches over her protecting her over and over from those that want her dead it is very hard to turn away from the only man you can trust. I felt Valerie Gilbert did a good job for the most part on this audio. She has a great smooth voice but at times her voice sound robotic not all the time but at times. She goes give wonderful emotion and you can tell what each are feeling. There were a couple of places where there was no emotion that I could hear. As a review for an audio you have to listen closely to the narrator voice why still listening to the story. At times it can be trying when you have both a good story and a good narrator. I feel Ms. Gilbert does a good job just need a little work on a smoother read. Her characters voices were great you did not have any trouble telling who was talking. I guess it throw me I thought Hope would have more of a Spanish accent which she does not. I did enjoy her many character voices you could always tell who was talking and just what was on their mind. I found no background noise her tones for the most part where smooth and even. There were no high or low parts just a clear listen. Ms. Clemmons gives you a highly entertaining read as she hooks you from page one. She gives you wonderful characters you can relate to. Before you are done you feel these people are your family. You are so invested in the story you do not want it to end. My heart broke for Hope not only has she lost just about everything but to have parents who really didn’t care for you or each other made her life tough. Thinking her aunt and uncle could be the ones trying to kill her just doesn’t put much faith in family at all. She has a few good friends but she still is holding her cards close to her chest. Micah you have to love this man as he protects Hope with his life.
