No One But You by Leigh Greenwood

"Leigh Greenwood writes in a classy style that gives the reader an emotion-filled, vicarious journey with well-developed characters. EXCELLENT READING!"—Long and Short Reviews

When war widow Sarah Winborne's ranch is at risk, she exchanges her hand in marriage for Benton Wheeler's help—and gets a more intimate arrangement than she bargained for.

Alone in the world and struggling to make ends meet, Texas war widow Sarah Winborne will do anything to keep her two small children safe and her hard-won ranch from going under. She hasn't fought for so long to lose everything... and if that means marrying a stranger to protect her family's future, then so be it.

She never expected anything but a business arrangement, but something about Benton Wheeler's broad shoulders and kind eyes awakens emotions she'd long since buried. He makes her feel beautiful. He makes her feel desired. He makes her feel like a woman again. And even though their marriage was never intended to be more than a matter of convenience, as Benton stands between her small family and the wild and dangerous West, Sarah may just realize that the cowboy she married is the love she never dreamed she would find...

"Readers are guaranteed an emotional, rich, adventurous romance with strong heroes and courageous heroines."—RT Book Reviews on Forever and Always

In 1867 in Caldwell County, Texas, having learned from years of worthless hands, Widow Sarah Winborne needs to marry to save her ranch for her and her seven year old twin children, Ellen and crippled Jared. She figures she would not need to pay a husband though the concept of a spouse makes her ill after her late husband Roger's ire towards her because their son was born with a withered leg. Thus accompanied by her kids, she heads to Randolph family spreads because they are considered an honest ethical brood as is their employees. She meets Benton "Salty" Wheeler who teases her with Southern "soft soap". They agree to wed in a marriage of convenience. After they exchange vows, they and the children return to her ranch. There Salty diligently works at rebuilding the spread. As Sarah and Salty fall in love, one thing makes her know he is not like Roger. He is kind and patient with both her kids; who he loves as his own especially when kidnappers take Ellen. With a connection to the Seven Brides Randolph family saga, No One But You is a warm historical ranch romance. The cast is extremely powerful especially the Winborne trio and Salty who is much more father to her wins than their dad was. With late suspense that enhances this exciting Post Civil War Texas romance, fans, especially the Randolph crew, will enjoy Leigh Greenwood's entertaining tale. Harriet Klausner

My first full-length novel by Leigh Greenwood--prior to this I'd only read one story in an anthology ( A Historical Christmas Present ). No One But You is a spin-off of sorts of the author's Seven Brides series--timewise, it takes place between books 1 and 2 of the series, but since the Randolphs play a small (crucial, but still small) part in this book, it worked just fine as a standalone. Overall, this was a sweet, pleasant story. I liked both Sarah and Salty (though I'm not a fan of either his name--Benton--or his nickname), and enjoyed Sarah's twin seven-year-olds, Jared and Ellen. I definitely feel like I know a heck of a lot more about Texas ranch living in the post-Civil War years than I did going in--I read a lot of historical romance, but not a lot of western so far. The story did have a tendency to drag a bit at times--I'm not sure I really needed to know that much about working a ranch--but the dynamic between the characters was fun, and the romance was sweet and believable. There's a few twists--some more predictable than others--and a touch of suspense to the story. I would have liked to have had it focus more on the romance itself, but it still was an enjoyable way to pass the time. The style of writing had a bit of an old-fashioned feel to it--even though the cover screams 2016, the contents felt older than that. Not necessarily in a bad way; it just didn't quite feel like it was a brand new book, even though it is. Perhaps it's just that the characters seemed to think and speak more like people from the 1800s, instead of 21st-century transplants? An element in its favor, definitely. So...my first full-length novel by Mr. Greenwood, but probably not my last. I am sufficiently interested in the Randolph brothers to keep an eye out for their stories going forward, and if Ellen and/or Jared are going to get their own? I am so there. Rating: 4 stars / B I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I have read this book several times. Love a good western, especially when the heroine is strong not just the hero. All of Leigh ' s books are a great read.

"Readers are guaranteed an emotional, rich, adventurous romance with strong heroes and courageous heroines."-RT Book Reviews on Forever and Always My Thoughts Taking place two years after the Civil War this reissued western historical romance is set in Texas on a hardscrabble ranch that has seen better days. Sarah Winbone is one of the widows of war, a typical casualty of the time that has an atypical female lead as Sarah manages for six long lonely years to keep her ranch afloat and raise her two children without their father. What I enjoyed were the time period as it only touched on the aftermath of war rather than actual event, the setting because it had a familiar feel due to areas mentioned located in Texas, the premise itself was different enough to rouse my curiosity to see how it would play out for Sarah and one of my favorite things was seeing Ellen and Jared bloom where as before they were overwhelmed with responsibilities no seven-year-old should have to shoulder. What aggravated me however was in the beginning there were multiple instances of repetition, some of them entire exact sentences used more than once to show Sarah's thoughts on the matter of why she was doing something and why she feared it was not going to work. Annoying, distracting and unecessary in my opinion as we got the point the first time. After getting past the repetitive parts at the books beginning it was actually a solid, steady read which had a gratifyingly slow buildup of how the relationship between Salty Benton Wheeler and Sarah evolved from wary strangers to partners in every way as man and wife. The surprise twists that take place were actually not such a huge surprise to me as expected them well before they happened, however the way in which they unfolded was pretty neatly described and allowed a bit of tension that allowed the couple to form a closer bond sooner. All in all despite it’s rocky beginning the story was entertaining and should still appeal to a wide romance reader audience, especially those who are into the early west setting historicals.

Barnes and Noble / 10-15-11 No One But You delivered the feel good, family good time that Leigh Greenwood is known for. You just wanted to reach into the book and give Jared and Ellen a great big hug. I liked that Ms. Greenwood's leading lady's have style, character and are not afraid to do whatever it takes to get the job done. It takes a lot of courage to head out looking for a husband to ensure that your family survives in a time where every member of the family has a role to play in the family dynamics in order to survive. I wished that there would have been more of depth to the relationship between Sarah and Salty, at times the relationship between the children and Salty to center stage over Sarah, but overall was a good historical romance.
