MONTANA DAWN - 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

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....

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.

I thought this book was quite well written. I believe it is the first one I read by this author. Lots of suspense, with a few touches of romance. The plot was well laid, with the answers to the suspense coming toward the end of the book. I like books with happy endings, so this one fit the day. I enjoyed the surprise concerning the Hero's heritage, which was revealed quite late in the book. It also allowed a look into some of the women's lives that lived in this era. I definitely would read the rest of the series when available.

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.
