    Excellent western romance

    In 1876, after spending ten years without even a one-day vacation at Miss. Madeline¿s Academy for Young Ladies, Jessica Tierney returns to Sacramento for the reading of her father¿s will. The attorney informs the lonely Jessica and her father¿s odious business partner William Perry that she inherits the multi-million dollar estate if she marries William within 30 days and begets a male heir within two years. Otherwise, everything goes to a San Francisco orphanage. When William tries to rape Jessica, she hits him with an ashtray and escapes. She rushes to the train station, but the only train leaving town has no seats and is waiting for Emma Grimes, school teacher. Desperate, Jessica claims to be Emma. <P>Several days later, the train reaches Cheyenne where she meets her employer Ross McCain. He takes her the rest of the way to Prosperity, Colorado. Ross believes in education. As a reluctant Jessica begins to teach the children, she and Ross fall in love. However, he sees the world in black and white with no room for liars. <P>A BRIDE FOR MCCAIN is a captivating western romance that will provide sub-genre fans with much pleasure and a new author to follow. The story line centers on Jessica¿s masquerade, but has deeper meaning in that it is her only option as a post Civil War female. Teaching reading to adults is an interesting sidebar as illiteracy is the norm in spite of most parents wanting their children to get a quality education. Ross and Jessica are a wonderful pair while the support cast provides depth to the era. Any reader who relishes a well-written and refreshing Americana romance will fully appreciate Mary Burton¿s debut tale. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Highly disappointing............................................

    Highly disappointing...................................................
    So what's worse?  The villain who 10 minutes after your father's will is read tries to rape you so you'll be forced to marry him or the hero who drags you to the local saloon and forces you to marry him even though you loudly and sincerely keep saying no.  Okay maybe the villain but only by a hair.  Are the men in the saloon who are laughing at your problem better or worse then the minister who pronounces you man and wife even though you have said no again and again.  I'd say the minister is the worst.      The hero keeps whining about how his first wife left him.  I can't imagine.  Maybe life with an obnoxious jerk just didn't appeal to her. There is not one decent man in this whole book.  Starting with the heroine's father who hates her though you never know why.  It seems a man raised in an orphanage would like his only child.  The lawyer who ignores her when she is screaming for help in his office.  The 8 year old son of the hero who knocks her on the floor 5 minutes after meeting her.  The list goes on and on.  I liked The Unexpected Wife by Mary Burton.  This was so bad I'll think twice about buying another book from her.
