Overview

Allison Pierson is a well-to-do young lady traveling by stagecoach from her home in Boston to meet her intended in Santa Fe, but instead finds herself stranded in a military fort in the middle of Indian Territory when her stagecoach leaves without her.

Given the choice to either temporarily marry an officer until her intended can come rescue her or take her chances with the Indians, she marries the glib Captain Wes Tucker, who unbeknownst to her, grew up in a wealthy Charleston family and despises everything she represents.

But when it's time for her beau to reclaim her and for Allison and Wes to annul their marriage, will she want to go with him, and more importantly, will Wes let her?

This is the first in a series of three Historical Westerns set in Indian Territory (modern day Oklahoma) in the mid 1840s.

Meet the Author

USA Today Bestselling Author Rose Gordon has written eight unusually unusual historical romances that have been known to include scarred heroes, feisty heroines, marriage-producing scandals, far too much scheming, naughty literature and always a sweet happily-ever-after. When not escaping to another world via reading or writing a book, she spends her time chasing two young boys around the house, being hunted by wild animals, or sitting on the swing in the backyard where she has to use her arms as shields to deflect projectiles AKA: balls, water balloons, sticks, pinecones, and anything else one of her boys picks up to hurl at his brother who just happens to be hiding behind her.

THE OFFICER AND THE BOSTONER by Rose Gordon is an fast paced Western Historical Romance set in 1845 Texas. #1 in the "Officer" series. What a beginning! Filled with passion,misunderstandings,secrets, and love. Join Allison Pierson,a well to do Bostoner,caught stranded in a military fort in Indian Territory and Captain Wes Tucker, a Military man from a wealthy Charleston family. Wes insists she must marry in order to stay in the fort,she accepts his proposal to marry him until her true intended comes to rescue her. What follows is a bit of humor and lots of passion. Allison soon learns she is in love with Wes and he with her. But enter her intended,who is only after her money. She will do anything to keep Wes safe and protected from her intended's stronghold. Wes, is wealthy in his own right,but Allison does not know this. If the Indians don't kill them Allison's food just might. For she knows nothing of housekeeping,she was raised as a socialite,enter the fun and laughter. Another hit for Ms. Gordon! She is an awesome storyteller who carries off her plots without a hitch. Her characters are engaging as well as realistic for the era.She has vivid descriptions that make the reader feel they are actually there. An intriguing story with a few twists and turns. Loved it!! If you enjoy historical romance, humor,Western love than "The Officer and the Bostoner" is the one for you to read. You will not regret your choice. Received for an honest review from the author and Net Galley. RATING: 4.5 HEAT RATING: MILD REVIEWED BY: AprilR, Review courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

This was a cute short book. It kept my attention as I could not stop reading it. Makes you feel very appreciative that we live in 2014 with running water not to mention freedom and security as our troops keep us safe.

I loved this book from page 1 or 2.  I love books that completely catch your interests right from the start.   This book does that!  I love the characters.  My only regret was that the book wasn't longer.  I love  all of Rosé Gordon's books and their respective characters.  I can't wait for the next book!,

Old fashioned romance. Lots of scenes to see how they fall in love. Loved that Wes was a virgin also... heros are usually man whores.

This is a funny store about a woman that believes in keeping her word even if it means loosing the one she loves. It is also about the man who thought he would never fall for a woman who seems to think of money more than the man she loves. Read it.

I'm a big fan of historical/western romance and this was a pleasant read. I thought Wes was a likable guy, upstanding, noble and kind. I really enjoyed his character and the banter he shared with Allison. Allison's prideful ways frustrated me a bit in the beginning, but she came around towards the end of the story. Wes probably wouldn't have fallen for her if she were a complete pushover. While I liked the book, it wasn't a page turner for me and I found myself putting it down a lot. It was still worth the time I took to read it and I was glad I finished it. I am curious about the other three officers and will return to the series to find out how they fair in their searches for love.

I have just finished yet another fabulous story by Rose Gordon. I quickly became a fan of Ms. Gordon's historical romance stories after reading the Banks' Brother's Brides series. I loved The Officer and the Bostoner from the beginning. This woman has a way of writing a story with drama, a few steamy scene's, and some hilarious scenes that made me laugh out loud. That is part of what I love about Rose Gordon's books they always make me laugh. I so thoroughly enjoyed reading Wes & Allison's story. On her way to meet her intended, the stage coach takes a wrong turn. Allison thinks her journey has left her in a horrible position in the middle of no where. That is until she meets Wes, handsome, sweet, kind hearted Captain Wes Tucker. At first these two don't mesh all that well but the sparks are there right away. I loved Allison with her spunky personality and Wes is just such a wonderful guy, how could I help but love him? Wes offers to marry Allison to keep her safe until her Nicholas arrives to  claim her as his own. They don't mean to fall for each other but the more time they spend together the closer they become. I loved watching this cute couple grow closer and try to protect each other as the story goes on. There is plenty of drama, romance, & laughter in this book that kept me turning pages quickly. I can not wait to read the next book in this series. Ms. Gordon has not yet failed to keep me highly entertained with one of her books. I am so glad I was able to obtain a copy of this book from Netgalley to share my thoughts with you.

The Officer And The Bostoner by Rose Gordon The Officer Series Book 1 Allison Pierson has left Boston to meet her betrothed. She ends up stranded in Fort Gibson where the only way she can stay safe and in the barracks is to marry. Good thing for her that her rescuer has offered not only to marry her but promises to protect her virtue….even from himself. What she don’t expect is to start caring for him. Captain Wes Tucker isn't at all who he seems. He once lived the life that Allison has come from and he knows her type. She might be beautiful and even seem nice enough, but he knows it all comes down to money. Why else is she so excited for her betrothed to come get her and bring her to Austin? And how can he convince this city girl to stay with him in the middle of nowhere without any of those city luxuries? Rose Gordon brings to life a new set of characters and stories on the open frontier. The reader is introduced to Jack and Gray who’s stories are yet to come. Life in the middle of nowhere isn’t easy for the women and danger is always lurking around the corner. This is the first of three books in the series and it’s definitely a great start. **Sexual content within marriage

Historic time piece , romance , fun , I can picture the scenes and people. Buy all 3 in series you won't be sorry, well written and just long enough not to be a short story at around 180 pages .

This was a very unique series due to being set in an Army outpost. The 3 stories stood alone, but were fabulous as a series. There were some unexpected turns, and some predictable aspects, but your heart has to be warmed with the familiar as well as jolted with a surprise. I highly recommend this book, as well as the series.

I typically do not care for historical western romance, but enjoyed this book. The conflict was just right, not too heavy. I dont read this genre for historical accuracy, but as a pleasant escape from reality. This book was worth my time. Enjoy!
