Overview

Kathleen Lacey O’Carroll knew she faced an uncertain future when she arrived in Wyoming as a mail-order bride—especially when she learned that the man she was to marry hadn’t actually ordered her. How could John Winterhawke, a fiercely independent and unsettling handsome half-Indian known as Hawke, possibly make room in his heart and in his life for her?

As far as Hawke was concerned, the last thing he needed was a high-spirited, overeager Irish wife who knew nothing about surviving on the harsh prairie.

But once the determined Lacey sensed the rough kindness and simmering hunger under Hawke’s forbidding demeanor, she set out to match his dark passion with her own—and claim his wild heart on her terms.

    Akmost perfect yet ruined with too descriptive sexual intimacy

    Once again Sharon Ihle has created a wonderful, delightful story with some unexpected twists.
    She is a very talented writer. I would be delighted to recommend her books to book clubs and to Young Adults but because of detailed sexual situations, I cannot do so. The detail is tactfully done, therefore, could be implemented with less detailed and increase her audience.

    Wit, charm and romance - utterly enjoyable!

    The Bride Wore Spurs made me cry and laugh so often, I had to put it away on the train as I was embarrassing myself! Sharon has an amazing gift of wit, combined with a talent for telling a charming love story in a stunning setting. I could really see and hear the characters as well as imagine the beautiful Wyoming territory as it must have looked nearly 150 years ago. I could not put it down until I finished and then felt bereft there was no more to read!

    Good for 99 cents. Sometimes slow moving but then surprised that a year went by. Very annoyed with Kates reveal in the end - it just did not make sense and the storyline fell apart for me and ruined it - as in I doubt I will re read in the future.

    Loved this story and the main characters in it. Romantic and some giggle out loud moments. I didn't find the ending rushed and was happy with the whole read. My first book with this author but not the last. JudyE

    Very heartwarming, excellent read!

    This book is un-put-down-able. I read all the short stories back to back to back. All the characters are personable, you feel like you know them, and like them! Very good reads, all of them. Very good choice to read, whether it's in front of a fireplace, or on a beach blanket.
