The day Katherine Holman goes into town, and makes up her mind to marry a man about to be hanged, is a turning point in every ones lives. Her Father had made keeping the Ranch an almost impossible feat. She had to marry a Man with a knowledge of Ranching in order to keep her home. She comes into town just as they are hanging five men for rustling. Looking the men over she makes her choice of the man that is unconscious...there was a little know law on the books. A man about to be hung could be rescued, as long as they didn't know each other. They also must marry....a very unusual law, and I'm sure was taken off the books immediately after this incident happened. When horrible things start happening at the Ranch, you will wonder if it is the rescued man, Wes Merrick who she has nursed to recovery. Or who else would be doing these things to her. We meet darling Hannah a precocious daughter of Katherine. Also there is sweet Consuela, who acts like a mother to Katherine. A very enjoyable story, but there is some explicit sex described. I received this book from the Author Jill Limber, and was not required to give a positive review

Couldn't finish it. The female lead is a nasty hateful women. I read about half of the book hoping it would get better but it never did. I think the author wanted her to appear as strong and independent but instead she seemed rude. A women can be successful without being a b*tch.

Well written............................................................................................................................................... If a little predictable. No new ground covered here but it was done well. Very similar to Second chance by Lori Handeland or The Wives of Bowie Stone by Maggie Osborne both about women who save men from the gallows to save their ranches. And then there is Cole's Redemption by Leigh Curtis who saves a man to save her silver mine. In my opinion Maggie Osborne did it best. But they were all good.

Late August, 1882 in town of Dennison, Montana Territory everyone but 23 year old Katherine Holmon has gathered in town to watch the hangings of five outlawing rustlers. Katherine has come to town to get a husband! Her father's will didn't leave her any choice. She had to have a husband within six months to inherit her father's ranch, and the town of Dennison has a rule, a woman can save a condemned man by claiming him, and marrying him.Seems like the answer to her problems so she chooses a badly beaten Wesley Austin Merrick, and her plan is to marry him,collect her ranch and then he can be on his merry way. As Wes recuperates at her ranch,she soon learns that Wes isn't what he first seemed, and that when the heart becomes involved plans often take a detour! The premise of a woman being able to "claim" a criminal and marry him was something I haven't read before,and it really drew me in. Once I started reading the story I really couldn't put it down. I had to know how things would work out for Katherine, after all she married an outlaw. I thought the author provided rich details,easily allowing me to visualize the story as it unfolded.I thought the story moved along at a pretty brisk pace and never found myself being bored. I was interesting to find out who Wes was and I thought the story line between Katherine and Martin Denty added another to the story. I also thought the character of Hannah was delightful. Overall, if enjoy reading well written historical fiction that weaves together the elements of suspense,mystery and romance to give you a page turning story then look no further because your going to find it in "Montana Territory." The story has me anxious to read more of Ms. Limber's work! A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review, and I can honestly say I loved this book!
