Cute story easy and enjoyable to read. I've read everything this author has written because I really enjoy her characters and the storyline is always enjoyable. Something common in every single one of her books is misunderstanding and assumptions by her main characters. When this happens it causes problems for all involved, a mid section to the book that has lots of tension and of course a happy ending. Although every book has different misunderstandings and different assumptions it does get a tad tedious. I'm not complaining per say, because I do like the way the author develops her characters but it does make me want to scream at the book. "Just open your mouth and speak!" The characters do most of their dialog in their heads. Which I guess is to be expected from this time period as people only said so much. I will continue to read and enjoy this author and I do highly recommend her. Every author has their thing and for me there would be 5 stars if every book didn't have a similar goings on.

The Officer and the Southerner by Rose Gordon Officer Series Book 2 Second Lt. Jack Warner has sent for a mail-order bride. His friends thought it was a bad idea, so he kept it to himself. Out of all the letters he received there was one that seemed to stick out. He really hoped this one would agree to come out and marry him. Ella Davis just had another suitor propose publicly….only not to her. She was tired of such humiliation. Her sister had a way of cheering her up though. She would read ads from men wanting a mail-order bride and they would laugh at them together. This particular night there was one ad that sounded authentic enough to write back. What could it hurt to just write and find out more about the man? Journey to Fort Gibson with Ella as she goes with a heart full of hope for a new life with the man in her letters. Too bad things aren’t quite the same as described in those letters. **Sexual situations within marriage

Ella and Jack's story was just as good as the first book of this series with Wes and Allison. The sweetness of the adjusting to each other phase in these books makes them hard to put down. 174 pages

This was a very unique series due to being set in an Army outpost. The 3 stories stood alone, but were fabulous as a series. There were some unexpected turns, and some predictable aspects, but your heart has to be warmed with the familiar as well as jolted with a surprise. I highly recommend this book, as well as the series.

The first in this series was upbeat, funny and well written. The next two in the series fell flat. Same plot and same predictable outcome. Sorry, Rose Gordon. The same story told multiple ways is still the same story.

THE OFFICER AND THE SOUTHERNER by Rose Gordon is an intriguing Historical Romance set in 1846 Indian territory. #2 in the "Fort Gibson Officers" series but can be read as a stand alone. Although, I must admit this is a great series, and would recommend reading "The Officer and the Bostoner" as well. A mail order bride,Ella Davis and a Army Second Lt. Jack Walker, what a novel idea and one I enjoyed. Ella has left her father's plantation for a new life in Indian Territory, although, it was nothing to what she expected nor was her intended bridegroom. While, Jack may have left out a few details in his letters about this forsaken Fort. Ella feels betrayed again, and all alone. She soon becomes ill, with a spider bite that could very well take her life. Jack in the meantime, is determined to save his new wife at all cost including his military career. He must get help from an Indian in order to save Ella's life. He stays by her side day and night and finds he joys her company even in illness. Together, Ella and Jack must find their way through illness, and misunderstandings in order to find what they both are looking for, true love and happiness. Fast paced and well written with engaging characters and a few twists and turns. Ms. Gordon is an author who pulls her readers into her stories and holds them there. The "Fort Gibson Officers" series shows readers the constant dangers of Military life, as well as the hardships military wives have to endure plus their determination to survive in a hard land during the 1840's. I can hardly wait for the next installment in this amazing series. I would encourage readers to pick up this series, especially if you enjoy Western stories, American history, the joys of Mail order brides, and the determination of the woman of long ago. A must read! This was a person buy. RATING: 4.5 HEAT RATING: MILD REVIEWED BY: AprilR, Courtesy of My Book Addiction and More
