A sweet, clean Western Romance novella.

Montana Territory 1875

For Ellie Sheridan, becoming a mail order bride for Sheriff Frank Patterson and travelling to a small town in Montana seems like the adventure of a lifetime. Now released from her lifetime job of looking after her sick mother in New Harbor, Ellie wants to settle down and become a bride. Love can come later. For now she is content to be a Sheriff's wife in the town of Broken Spur.

But when she arrives to find Frank is a drunk and has no respect for her, Ellie writes to her sister asking for a ticket home. Her mind is set… even though she loves the West, she will return to Maine and try to forget her bad experience.

Until one morning while out riding she comes across an injured Marshal lying on the trail. Taking him in and tending to his wounds, Ellie wonders if the reason she came out West was to meet Marshal Jack McQueen.

Because now she's met him, she doesn't see how she can ever go home.

Interesting story line

Good story about Jack and Ellie's romance, their journey towards love. A light, chaste romance with a little gunplay. This Mail Order Bride [MOB] was a little different in that of how she dealt with the lies. When I think of how women in that time period was brave and courageous to travel weeks to meet a man based on their correspondence and not knowing if the man would be good and true or cruel and evil or worst, a drunk and crooked to the core, wow. Ellie in this story received the last type of man but how she dealt with her situation...more or less, is the story and her encounter with the marshal. Enjoy. Happy Reading! *****vrnb******

Character motivation seriously lacking. MONTANA AT SUNRISE runs 65 pages (without front- and end-matter). True to its rating by the author, it's a 'clean' read, wholesome in content and language. This is my first read by Blaire Brand, and after much deliberation about *why* this highly rated novella didn't sit well with me, this may well be my last. And this is just plain tragic, as I ADORE mail order bride romance, favor this time era and the American west, find the premises and settings of Brand's work to be highly appealing. I started this read fully planning to LOVE it. Unfortunately, I found the flaming lack of motivation (across the board)....characters behaved in unbelievable ways, did unsympathetic things without convincing me they'd actually DO be a *significant* deal-breaker. With every incidence of poorly motivated action/choice/decision I found myself liking the characters and story less and less. By the end, I'd failed to make a connection with the hero or heroine and didn't care whether they got their happily-ever-after. I wanted to smack the heroine from the moment she stepped into Broken Spur...and my aggravation with her only grew. The less I liked (or understood) the characters, the more little glitches (like typos) and historical inaccuracies drove me crazy-- like a penniless bride fully expecting to (somehow-- it's never explained) buy a white wedding dress in a frontier town. In 1875. Nope. Just as horrifically inaccurate as a lawman setting out with his bride across the Oregon Trail...unaccompanied. (Does he have a death wish?) Bottom line-- I didn't like it. Apparently Ms. Brand's writing is not for me. Sensuality Level: Wholesome Language: Rated G Story includes gunfight violence and attempted brutalization of a woman (parental guidance suggested)
