Overview

Colorado Territory, 1868: It was about as rough-and-ready as the West could get, a place and time almost as dangerous as the men who left civilization behind, driven by a desire for land, gold … a new life.

Fort Lookout: It was a rugged outpost where soldiers, cattlemen and Indians lived on the edge of open warfare, the last place any woman in her right mind would choose to settle.

Abby: She was everything a man should avoid – with a figure made for temptation, a face of beauty, and an expression of stubborn determination. Colonel Bryce McGregor knew there was no room for such a woman at his fort or in his heart. But no matter how many obstacles he put in her path, Abby was determined to make a go of her father’s store. And as she received proposal after proposal from his troops, Bryce realized the only man he could allow her to marry was himself.

This was a very enjoyable read without a lot of smut. Too many typos.

For historical romances, I can always count on Leigh Greenwood's books to be good. This romance between Bryce, the Army Colonel, and Abby, the independent thinking shopkeeper, is entertaining and could certainly have some additional books written about many of its sub-characters (Moriah, Collier, Pamela, or even the rancher with the jail time for murder in his history who helps Abby at one time, Tibbolt) but my happy feeling at the end of the book was just slightly better than lukewarm...Where was the wedding? In book two? It was not as good as many of Greenwood's other series books like JAKE, WARD, and BUCK. Those books were great! Maybe next time...

Under suspicion for embezzlement Abigail Pierce, accompanied by her sister Moriah, flee St. Louis to run their late father¿s store at Fort Lookout, Colorado. The commander of the army post, Captain Bryce McGregor tries, but fails to persuade the siblings to go home as they do not belong in the rugged unsafe Rocky Mountains even inside the fort. Bryce does convince the women to stay with him until the store can be renovated and made hospitable. His young daughter Pamela serves as a perfect chaperone so Abby and Moriah accept the kind offer................................ Pamela adopts Abby as a mother figure and the former St. Louis resident cannot stop her heart from reaching out to the young child. Inadvertently Pamela plays matchmaker as Abby and Bryce fall in love. However, Abigail willingly sacrifices her happiness because she knows the scandal she fled would destroy the man she cherishes as a rising officer cannot afford a dishonored (even if she is innocent) spouse.................................... There are few if any authors that can provide such well drawn characters including secondary players with a colorfully vivid nineteenth century Americana panorama inside an exciting historical romance than Leigh greenwood can. His latest tale INDEPENDENT BRIDE matches up two honorable individuals in love and encouraged by her sister and his daughter and even to a degree his men, but those same principles stand in their way of happiness. Mr. Greenwood shows that principles are important even if it costs achievement of a personal goal all that within a fabulous post Civil War romance with a deep message....................
