Editorial Reviews

Harriett Klausner
Anyone "SADDLED" WITH Delores Fossen's western romance will know they have read an enjoyable tale. The story line is amusing because of the antics of Abbie. Rio is a heroic hunk who knows his wife is unconventional but finds he loves her anyway. Sub-genre fans will gain much delight from Ms. Fossen's historical romantic romp.
Scribes World Reviews
SADDLED is a well-crafted, sexy, historical romance. I highly recommend it.
Suzanne Coleburn
Delores Fossen is just a delightful find! She’s witty, wonderful and wicked.

    But at the end it started to drag and fell back on a heavy dose of the generic steamy love scene to replace good dialogue and plot. Too bad. It almost made it.

    delightful historical romantic romp

    In 1881 Fall Creek, Texas, Abbie Dongan climbs through the window of the whorehouse so she can offer a deal to half-breed Rio McCane. She knows he needs money to fend off creditors due to the failures of his half-brother. Abbie, who was ruined by her two days of captivity by the Apaches, asks Rio to marry her and help her free fellow prisoner Harmony from Gray Wolf. He must also live on her ranch until his presence makes Carmella leave. If he does all that, he gets his ranch back free of debt. <P>Abbie and Rio marry and he now regains his deceased father¿s ranch back from the bank. After the ceremony, Abbie¿s first surprise surfaces as she informs Rio that her half sister, a nun, Sister Victoria will ride with them. Also joining them is little Gussie, a maybe half-sister, plus a dog. When he married her, Rio knew his wife kept some secrets from him, but he begins to wonder what her true agenda is and what adventure will she take them on in the future? Anyone ¿SADDLED¿ WITH Delores Fossen¿s western romance will know they have read an enjoyable tale. The story line is amusing because of the antics of Abbie. Rio is a heroic hunk who knows his wife is unconventional but finds he loves her anyway. Sub-genre fans will gain much delight from Ms. Fossen¿s historical romantic romp. <P>Harriet Klausner

    SADDLED has it all!

    ...Blazing hot romance, humor, a hero and heroine who make you root for them in the hope that they can overcome all the seemingly impossible obstacles in the way of their ever trusting each other enough to find the happiness together. In this Texas-set story, Rio McCaine is dark and dangerous-- on the outside, anyway. When he agrees to Abbie Donegan's marriage proposal, it's only to save his ranch. He's not so foolish as to trust her with his heart, even though he finds her unexpectedly fascinating. Abbie Donegan is not the trusting sort either, and she makes certain -- she thinks!-- she's holding all the aces when she make her wild marriage proposal to Rio, to get back at his black-mailing half-brother. But keeping the marriage one 'in name only' is a lot harder than she thought. Both of these characters are very real, needing healing and to learn to trust again after life has dealt them some hard knocks. The situation is complicated by Abbie's wild, unpredictable siblings. Delores Fossen is definitely a rising star!!

    Fantastic! FIVE shooting STARS! Don't miss this book!

    Saddled is a FIVE STAR romance! It has everything a romance reader could ask for- love, danger, action and sparkling wit. With Saddled, Delores Fossen has written a tremendous romantic comedy with a very funny western slant. Ladies, not only will you fall in love with the handsome hero, Rio McCaine, but all the characters as well. From the spunky heroine, Abbie Donegan to her adorable outspoken kid sister, Gussie. The story is fast paced, the humor is really funny, and the romantic scenes¿ well, let¿s just say they are VERY WELL DONE! You DON¿T want to miss this book!

    a hoot

    A REVIEW OF SADDLED BY DELORES FOSSEN SADDLED is about a marriage of convenience that is downright inconvenient for hero Rio McCaine. From the moment Abilene Donegan drops at his feet and proposes marriage, he knows he¿s in trouble. After all, how many sane heiresses crawl into a brothel through the window? But the bait she dangles is too tempting - she¿ll pay off the debts accrued by his no-good half-brother, will buy the indebted ranch and give it to him as a wedding gift. In return, all she asks is that he a) rescue her sister from the same Apaches who held her hostage and ¿ruined¿ her, b) chase her father¿s last paramour from her family home, and c) discourage a particularly persistent suitor from pestering her. That¿s it. No strings. But Rio considers all that a small price to pay for the dream of owning his family¿s ranch outright. That is, until he finds that Abbie only skimmed the surface when she told him what each of these duties entails. The fun comes with discovering, along with Rio, just what it is that Abbie has up her sleeve, and clues are delivered in layer after delicious layer. Sexual tension hummed between Abbie and Rio and every time they found themselves alone, I was leaning forward in my chair. The banter was quick and witty, and I laughed out loud several times. I hesitate to say more, since I don¿t want to give too much away, but let me just add one more thing - beware of skunks!

    Liked the book. Funny and romantic. Sometimes a little too silly with the way the heroine acted, but all in all an enjoyable read. JudyE

    Great story!

    The characters are funny and loveable. Human, laughable and not perfect like some canned romances. Parts made me laugh out loud. You can just picture these less than perfect folks figuring out what its all about!
