MONTANA DAWN – (Western Historical Romance) Book One in The McCutcheon Family Series 2010 Maggie Finalist, 2010 Gayle Wilson Finalist , RWA Golden Heart Finalist

When Luke McCutcheon finds Faith Brown about to give birth in her rickety wagon, his first instincts are to ride for help. Instead, he stays and delivers a beautiful baby girl. Unable to leave the pretty young widow and her little son and newborn unprotected in the Montana wilderness, he brings them along on his family’s cattle drive, to the absolute delight of the other friendly cowboys.

"I ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF THE BOOK AND THAT'S ABOUT AS GOOD AS A BOOK CAN GET!"—Philosophy of Romance

Luke, third son of Montana’s wealthy McCutcheon family, is different from his brothers. As the offspring of a Cheyenne warrior, he carries a chip on his shoulder for all to see. His flashing eyes and handsome face make Faith feel she’s stepped into some long-ago tale where men cherish their women--and keep them safe. If only she could trust him! Faith is on the run, and although she’s pampered and protected by Luke and his family, she just can’t risk the consequences of sharing the details of her past--one that’s hunting to take her back to the nightmare she’s just escaped. Happy-ever-afters are for fairytales, she reminds herself sternly as her heart feels the warm pull of his. Still, she can’t help but dream of a loving family, a home to call her own, a beautiful and bright…Montana Dawn

    Montana Dawn is a AAA+++ read!!!

    I love historical books but my favorites are usually set in the middle ages. I made an exception with this book. It has action, adventure, suspense and of course romance, everything a person could want. Faith, a pregnant widowed, with a son sets off accross the wilderness on the run from the family of her abusive husband. She gets stuck and goes into labor only to have Luke,a man on a cattle drive find her and help deliver her baby. Faith thinks if she goes with the cattle drive that she will be safe and able to hide from her inlaws but will she lose something during the cattle drive, something she has never given to a man, her heart??? Luke find Faith ready to give birth in the middle of a storm, in a bogged down wagon, with a young son in tow. Luke decides he can't leave the young mother out on the plains defenseless, so he takes her with him to finishe the cattle drive to his families ranch. Luke is just trying to be a good person and help a young widow and mother in need but will he get more than he barginned for??? When Faith's brother-in-law shows up, Luke sees she is scared and he knows something is wrong. Faith tells him not to trust Ward, something tells him he should listen but when Ward helps save his brother from drowning, he feels obligated to the man. Luke's family loves Faith and the children but does Luke and Faith have feelings for each other? Will this all come back to bite Luke later on or is Faith wrong and Ward isn't as bad as she says??? All I can tell everyone is that even if Westerns aren't a normal read for you, give this book a try you will not be disapointed. I wil be keeping this book on my shelf to reread later on. I don't normally do that with any book but Montana Dawn is a definate exception.

    Well written------but boring.............................................................
    Family dynamics were great but when I was up to page 120 and Faith still hasn't told Luke the truth about why she's running away from her deranged brother in law I just rolled my eyes and gave up on them.   Frankly Luke seemed to be a little too insecure for a  hero.   I know--I know it's the half Indian thing.   But really --your surrounded by a loving family--get over it.Anyway it was a little to slow for my taste.     I moved on to  a story with some movement in it....

    What an awesome adventure!

    Carolyn Fyffe is my newest favorite author. After reading "Where the Wind Blows" on Kindle, I found another of her books, "Montana Dawn." Once again, I could not put it down. Fyffe doesn't just tell a story, she takes the reader on an adventure. Within the first third of the book, the hero, Luke McCutcheons delivers a baby from a covered wagon, drives thousands of head of cattle, and saves his brother from a raging river. Fyffe's development of her dynamic characters is subtle. As the heroine Faith Brown falls in love with Luke, so does the reader. Where can I find more books by Carolyn Fyffe? Please tell me this isn't the last!

    I enjoyed this story very much. Solidarity of family and workin

    I enjoyed this story very much. Solidarity of family and working ranch hands made a wonderful feel good story. Having Luke deliver the baby and then name her and then falling in love with Faith was a great start to a love story. Colton played a great part especially in the end, saving the day so to speak. She did a great job with the bad guys. Overall I liked the story. Faith did some stupid things in my mind. But she was great with Luke's family. Luke was a good hero and I liked him a lot.

    Montana Dawn

    Another great story by Caroline Fyffe. Makes me want to visit Montana and relive those descriptive words that she brings to life in her stories.
    I highly recommend all her books as one story leads into another.
    Love, respect and loyal family ties are what keeps the McCutcheon family together through trials and tribulations.

    A Great Western Romance and More

    Caroline Fyffe has proven beyond doubt that she has more then one good story to tell. This book has so much more then other romances. Ms. Fyffe has the talent to develop multiple characters who have their own sub-plots to keep you reading till the very end. Well worth the price and time to read this 2nd book by the author. My hope is that we will continue to see more of her books in the future.

    She's Done It Again!

    Caroline Fyffe has a new book and it means a new chance to visit the old West. When a cowboy on a trail drive stumbles across a woman in labor out on the prairie, he becomes her deliverer in more ways than one. Luke wants to help Faith, but she has secrets that can endanger them both.

    This is a romance, a Western and an adventure story, all in one book. I loved it and I think you will, too.

    fabulous love story

    i found this book at a local book store and read the back of the book and i was hooked.

    the story starts out with faith who is running away from her brother-in-law who blames her for killing his brother. along comes luke when he hears screaming and comes across faith in hard labor and he has no choice but to deliver the baby. she is reluctant to tell this stranger her secret but agrees to allow him to bring her to his ranch. she lies and tells him she has a job waiting for her and will live with her aunt.

    somehow ward finds her and threatens to tell luke about her secret and reluctantly agrees to go with him.

    faith loves luke but is afraid to tell him the truth. he finds out about her secret but by now she gone and he's furious.

    i won't tell you how it ends, you'll just have to find out for yourself. but trust me you will like the ending. it was so touching that it brought tears to my eyes.

    a superb tale

    In 1883 in the Montana Territory, while on a drive cattleman Luke McCutchen hears a scream while riding. He investigates a wagon where he finds a woman biting on wood. He goes to help her, but her young "son" Cullen hits him with a frying pan. He helps Faith Brown give birth.

    Faith has fled Nebraska and her late husband's family. They accused her of killing her spouse Samuel and demand she marry her evil brother-in-law Ward, who covets her spread near Kearney. A desperate Faith takes a chance on Luke and his men keeping her and her kids safe although she fears she has placed Luke and the others in peril when the odious Ward catches up to her as she expects. While falling in love on the trail, her lies keeps her from fully turning to Luke, who loves the three stragglers he found.

    Caroline Fyffe's second late nineteenth century Great Plains Americana romance (see Where the Wind Blows) is a superb tale that grips the audience the moment that Luke investigates the scream and never slows down for even a paragraph. Like the beleaguered heroine, readers anticipate the high noon showdown in Big Sky Country as heroic Luke and despicable Ward will face off while Faith tries to do the noble thing in spite of her lies. This is an exciting winner even with stereotypical opposites of a noble hero and a vile villain.
