-Philosophy of Romance
Luke, third son of Montana's wealthy McCutcheon family, is different from his brothers. As the offspring of a Cheyenne warrior, he carries a chip on his shoulder for all to see. His flashing eyes and handsome face make Faith feel she's stepped into some long-ago tale where men cherish their women--and keep them safe. If only she could trust him! Faith is on the run, and although she's pampered and protected by Luke and his family, she just can't risk the consequences of sharing the details of her past--one that's hunting to take her back to the nightmare she's just escaped. Happy-ever-afters are for fairytales, she reminds herself sternly as her heart feels the warm pull of his. Still, she can't help but dream of a loving family, a home to call her own, a beautiful and bright...Montana Dawn

Well written------but boring............................................................. Family dynamics were great but when I was up to page 120 and Faith still hasn't told Luke the truth about why she's running away from her deranged brother in law I just rolled my eyes and gave up on them. Frankly Luke seemed to be a little too insecure for a hero. I know--I know it's the half Indian thing. But really --your surrounded by a loving family--get over it.Anyway it was a little to slow for my taste. I moved on to a story with some movement in it....
Terrific Faith is running scared after being accused of killing her husband. She is in labor with her step son in the back of a wagon and its raining. He rides up when he hears her cries. Their horses have run off. Luke is bringing her home to the ranch but he can't get a straight answer. Will it all work out.
I loved that the sons were named Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. This was so touching:"I don't know why things like this happen. It's a mystery. Sometimes they just do, and there's no telling why. But I'm sure of one thing: God didn't do it to punish you. He would never do that. Why, I bet he feels just as bad about it as you do." I absolutely love Luke's wedding present to his new bride!
I enjoyed this story very much. Solidarity of family and working ranch hands made a wonderful feel good story. Having Luke deliver the baby and then name her and then falling in love with Faith was a great start to a love story. Colton played a great part especially in the end, saving the day so to speak. She did a great job with the bad guys. Overall I liked the story. Faith did some stupid things in my mind. But she was great with Luke's family. Luke was a good hero and I liked him a lot.
