Fans of westerns will find themselves transported to frontier Colorado, and into stories with independent heroines, adventure, love, and ambition.

 

ABOUT The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper

Roman Holiday meets Mary Poppins in this Gilded Age tale of Eugenia "Gennie" Cooper, a New York socialite who takes advantage of a rare opportunity to step into the world of the dime novels she secretly loves. From the splendor of Fifth Avenue's mansions to the gilded homes of Denver silver barons and the rugged Leadville mines, Gennie's adventure as a governess soon becomes a love story despite the rocky start she has with widower Daniel Beck and his daughter Charlotte.

 

ABOUT Anna Finch and the Hired Gun

Anna Finch's father desperately wants to marry her off, but Anna's not having much success, mostly because she's much better at the written word than the spoken word. When she's around an eligible man, she becomes completely tongue-tied. It doesn't help that the awful man at the newspaper taunts her with constant mentions in his "Perish the Thought" gossip column.

 

When Anna encounters the infamous lawman and outlaw Wyatt Earp, she sees her chance to finally achieve her dream of becoming a reporter. In this capacity, she finds love and trouble in equal measure when she convinces the dying gunfighter Doc Holliday to tell her his story. Her freedom to meet with Holliday is hampered, however, by Pinkerton agent Jeb Sanders, who's been hired to keep an eye on her--and keep her away from nobleman and notorious playboy Edwin Beck. Once Jeb realizes what Anna's up to, his annoyance at being forced to babysit a rich girl is swamped by his need to exact revenge on Doc Holliday.

 

As the reporter and the detective get more tangled in Doc Holliday's story and each other, will their opposing goals tear

them apart--or bring them together?

 

ABOUT The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck

Charlotte Beck wants to go to college, but her father would rather she get married and spend her days painting. Alex Hambly's aristocratic family is in financial straits, and he has two options: either sell off the family's Colorado silver mine or marry a rich, American heiress. Charlotte's father makes them a deal: he'll allow Charlotte to go to college and be the instrument of Alex's financial salvation on one condition--that they agree to get married. Seeing no way out, Charlotte and Alex find themselves engaged. They agree that they'll have the marriage annulled as soon as possible and go back to their own lives. Except Alex isn't sure he wants the annulment. He sets out to woo his wife for real, and Charlotte suddenly finds that her marriage has become very inconvenient indeed.

    The Rocky Mountain Heiress Collection by Kathleen Y¿Barbo Three

    The Rocky Mountain Heiress Collection by Kathleen Y’Barbo
    Three Inspirational Romances
    The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper 
    Eugenia Flora Cooper “Gennie” is a fan of Mae Winslow – Woman of the West. The heroine of a dime novel. Before she settles down into marriage, Gennie would love an adventure. When opportunity knocks, she answers and heads to Denver to be a temporary governess for a young girl.




    Daniel Beck is a father with a handful of a daughter, unhappy workers and business travel from Denver to his silver mines in Leadville. And now his newest governess has the nerve to write him and demand he come home, hinting that he is not a good father. His plan was to send her packing immediately, plans changed.




    A fun story of a New York debutante with a dream to have an adventure. And then settle for the banker who would want to marry her when she returned. Only this adventure and misunderstandings in Colorado change her life forever.








    Anna Finch and the Hired Gun
    We met Anna Finch in book 1 of this series. She loved Daniel Beck, but the love was not returned. Now she just wants to live her life and not be stuck in a marriage. She wants to be a journalist, ride horse astride and shoot her gun. Her parents want someone to marry and tame her.




    Jeb Sanders is a Pinkerton agent who carries a grudge. He just wants to rid the world of Doc Holliday. He does not want to be a nursemaid for a spoiled rich girl, but he his. This fancy gal is much more than she seems, he quickly finds out.




    I really enjoyed this story. It continued with characters you meet in book one. Added to the mix are Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday, along with an annoying newspaper columnists who writes as he sees it, usually not as it is. A really enjoyable series.




    The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck
    Charlotte Beck travels to England with her step-mother so she can be introduced into proper London society. Charlotte is not cut out for that life, she grew up with the likes of William Cody and his Wild West shows.




    Viscount Alexander Hambly wants a quiet life. Once he meets the spitfire from America, his peace and quiet it gone. The American is a menace who causes havoc where ever she goes and whatever she touches.




    When Charlotte is called back to America to be with her dad, it’s not soon enough. She leaves a black mark on their family name in England. Trouble just finds her. When Alex arrives in America, her father sees the perfect man his daughter. She don’t, but Alex needs her money. An agreement is made that Charlotte does not want to keep. Instead of trusting in God, she only wants to trust her own leading. What secret has Charlotte running from both God and love?

    Reviewed by Stephanie Dagg for Readers Favorite

    "The Rocky Mountain Heiress Collection" by Kathleen Y’Barbo consists of three lively and enthralling stories: 'The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper', 'Anna Finch and the Hired Gun', and 'The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck'. Each story is a romance set in the Wild West in the late nineteenth century with a very strong and self-willed heroine. Fortunately there are men around up to the task of handling them, and that takes some doing. Eugenia comes from a wealthy family with a respectable prospective fiancé all lined up. However, inspired by Mae Winslow’s dime novels, she takes herself on an adventure in the mountains and discovers she is a pretty good governess to the totally wild Charlotte Beck, who is the main subject of the third story in the collection. Anna Finch is a friend of Eugenia and, it turns out, a major inspiration to her too. These three stories weave themselves tightly together, which is a wonderful touch. Each one is peopled by interesting characters in beautifully depicted settings with attention to historical detail. Each of the stories works well on its own, but this symbiosis makes them complete.

    Of course, such go-getter girls, who are prepared to stand up against their slightly domineering fathers, need appropriate men to match and merit them. And Daniel Beck, Jeb Sanders and Alexander Hambly appear to be the ones up for the job. But like the mountains in the setting of these stories, our three heroines drag them along a rocky road, which may be just too much for them to cope with. Eugenia has the nerve to discipline Daniel’s beloved daughter and Anna puts a bullet in Jeb and, as the title suggests, Charlotte’s marriage is inconvenient. Are there better men lurking in the wings? There are other unifying minor characters throughout the stories and a few well-known names of the period appear too. This collection of stories is fun, frantic in places, but ultimately heart-warming and inspiring. It is good to dream and aim to achieve as much as you can, whatever barriers you may come up against. Gender, class and convention threaten to restrict what our three girls get up to but they think otherwise. And if they can succeed, then, even though we are not characters in works of fiction, we can too.
