Meet the Author

Terry Irene Blain was lucky enough to grow up in a large Midwestern family with a rich oral tradition. As a child she heard stories of ancestors’ adventures with Indians, wildlife, weather and frontier life in general, so she naturally gravitated to the study of history and completed a BA and MA then taught the subject at the college level. Married to a sailor, now retired, she’s had the chance to live in various parts of the U.S. and has traveled to Hong Kong, Australia, England and Scotland.


“My degrees and my teaching experience make me a natural to write historical romance. Writing historical romance gives me the opportunity to pass on stories of who we are and where we come from while exploring the relationship between men and women. What could be more exciting than that?”

    Yes, this is another easy-to-read historical romance, but I have to admit that I rather liked it. This is the second book I have read by Terry Blain, and I actually enjoyed this one more than the first (which doesn't make sense since this book is older, but that is just my preference). I found this book much more historical, and there was actually something happened that I did not see coming.

    Julie is an absolutely delightful character--your normal, typical, strong, old-fashioned woman. Though rather stereotypical, I truly found myself pulling for her. And her relationship with Wes does become somewhat complicated. It was interesting to discover that some of this book was actually true when it came to historical facts. That always resonates with me, and it makes me love the book even more.

    The profanity in the book was quite mild, but it was there. And the bedroom scene was a little more descriptive than what I like. But I will say that the romance did not strike me as being too sappy. Maybe a bit at times, but it seemed genuine and entertaining.

    This author has one of the easiest historical fiction read styles that I have read, and it is nice that you can pick the book up and have it finished in an evening. It does not require a lot of over-thinking, and your mind can even take a little vacation. Until Ms. Blain wakes it up!

    Yes, this is predictable, but it is nice and light for the end-of-the-summer read. If you like historical romances set in the West, this should appeal to you.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    Historical romance seems to be one of my weaknesses. It’s not a genre
    that’s usually particularly inspiring and often enough the books are set
    in England (or Scotland) but written in modern day American English,
    which bugs me to no end. I haven’t read very many historical anythings
    set in the Americas but I’ve been brought up around a grandmother who
    happens to be overly fond of westerns, so when I read the synopsis of
    this one I was intrigued. The American west in that period was still
    very much on the wild side and that sort of setting appeals to me,
    possibly because it’s such a far cry from anything to be found these
    days. The author managed to really capture the feel of the period for
    me. I felt transported. I could just imagine this little western town
    they were living in! It was obvious that she did a lot of research and
    went to great lengths to make her period feel authentic – research and
    great lengths that definitely paid off for me as the reader. It was
    also interesting to see the process of getting gold and silver from the
    ore and how the refineries (that might not be the correct word but it’s
    the only one coming to mind right now) were operated. There was a slight
    issue here, however, in that the information was too clumped for me. Wes
    gives Julie a tour of her uncle’s “refinery” and explains the processes
    to her, which is a good example of exposition through dialogue. My issue
    was that there was too much information too fast for me to really absorb
    it properly. It didn’t help that I was already tired and so a large
    amount of what is essentially nonfiction coming at me all at once felt
    more like a barrage of facts than part of the story. I understand what
    the author was doing, but my mind just couldn’t deal with it.
    Thankfully these “info dumps” were few and far between and I was able to
    really appreciate the intricate story that the author was weaving. As a
    historical romance it does, of course, focus mainly on the budding
    relationship between Wes and Julie but there’s enough going on around it
    to keep it well balanced. I didn’t feel completely swamped by just the
    relationship and it wasn’t love at first sight (though it was lust, but
    I’m happy with lust. Lust is normal). Wes being an undercover officer
    for Wells Fargo was also of particular interest. I have to admit that I
    didn’t even know there was such a thing as Wells Fargo; never mind what
    its role was. So I actually learnt bits of American history from reading
    this book! That’s something that always appeals to me in a book.

    Historical Romances are exciting, thrilling, and they can get your blood pumping as well as if you were running a mile. Terry Blain is a stupendous storyteller. You can tell from her attention of the smallest details to the historical facts she includes in her books that she absolutely loves what she does for a living.

    Colorado Silver, Colorado Gold is a wonderful love story about the struggles of early Western America and the triumphs the hero and heroine face together and individually. Juliette and Wes are characters that you can instantly fall in love with and continue to root for even after you are done reading. I was really sad to see the book come to a close but only because I wanted to know more of what those two might get into next.

    If you enjoy a wonderful love story wrapped in an early American setting then this is definitely the book for you. Once I started reading Ms. Blaine's book, I could not put it down! Enjoy!
