SPRING WEDDING FEVER IN THE WILD WILD WEST The City Girl and the Rancher by Lynna BanningSeries Smoke River Book 25Penniless Clarissa Seaforth leaps at gruff rancher Graydon Harris's offer to become his cook She's never cared for a man before but surely it can't be hard to learnVery good story Clarissa has accepted an offer of marriage from an unknown rancher in Oregon in order to have a home in which to raise her adopted daughter Emily On the train ride to the west she becomes acuainted with Gray another rancher from the same time When her fiance doesn't show to pick them up Clarissa takes a job singing in the saloon to earn desperately needed money When her drunk fiance shows up and makes unwanted advances Gray is there to rescue her He offers her and Emily a place on his ranch where she can serve as his cook until she earns enough to return to BostonI loved Gray who was a kind and honorable man under his gruff exterior I loved the way he was so protective of them even though he didn't understand why he felt that way His family life growing up had left him determined that he would never marry His ranch was the most important thing in his life It was fun to see the way that little Emily wiggled her way into his heart first I loved seeing how he helped Clarissa settle in to life on the ranchClarissa was very naive about what to expect when she came west Her family had had money until her brother was lost at sea leaving her with nothing She believed everything the man she was supposed to marry told her and was horrified to discover how he had lied At this point she doesn't like anything about the west but has to make the best of it I liked her determination to learn to cook since that's what she's been hired to do The scene with her first chicken was greatI liked seeing the relationship develop between Gray and Clarissa There are some sparks that start flying between them that neither is uite sure how to deal with while other interactions as Gray introduced her to life on a ranch were pretty sweet Since he had never experienced love he doesn't realize that that is what he begins to feel for her All he knows is that he wants to keep her and Emily on the ranch with him Clarissa is pretty focused on returning home until little Emily opens her eyes to what is right in front of herAll the time there has been worry about what the man she turned down is going to do He is already creating problems for Gray because of the ranch There is definitely a feeling of impending trouble When it happens Gray has to decide which is important to him Clarissa or the ranch The resolution came with a surprising twist and a sweet endingHis Springtime Bride by Kathryn Albright Spring is in the air Can rancher Gabe Coulter and Riley Rawlins the boss's daughter find forgiveness and renew the lovers' vows they made so long ago?Excellent story of redemption and second chances When Gabe got out of prison after serving his sentence for manslaughter he went back to the ranch he grew up on hoping to start his life over When he got there he discovered that the land had been bought by the neighboring rancher a man he considered his enemy but also the father of the girl he had loved Gabe has matured a lot since the last time he saw Rawlins and faces the man determined to get his land back Meanwhile Riley has been living in Philadelphia with her mother's family for the last fourteen years until trouble with her son sends her back to California and her father's ranch Neither Gabe nor Riley had ever expected to see each other againBoth Riley and Gabe realize that their feelings had not changed but neither is sure that they can trust the other Riley believes that Gabe had used her for revenge against her father and then deserted her leaving her heartbroken and pregnant Gabe half white and half Indian believes that Riley had thought herself too good for him and now he believes it too Then there is Riley's son Brody who has some serious attitude problems that remind Gabe of himself at that age There was a lot going on in this story There is Gabe's resentment of Rawlins and the things that he believes went on all those years before Rawlins seems like he could be guilty of those things but he also gives Gabe a job and the chance to earn back his land Riley's return gives her a chance to repair her relationship with her father who she partly blames for her separation from Gabe Riley also has to decide whether Gabe is trustworthy enough to be told about BrodyI really liked seeing Gabe and Riley getting to know each other again It wasn't an easy process as both had conflicting memories of events from fourteen years earlier memories that had to be compared and reconciled before they could move on I also liked seeing how Gabe was able to reach past Brody's resentments and help the boy grow and change for the better Through it all Rawlins seemed to hold the answers to many of the uestions that Gabe and Riley had and was just waiting to see how both of them handled their new realities before providing them There were some tense moments at the end but I loved seeing it all come togetherWhen a Cowboy Says I Do by Lauri RobinsonDal Roberts must make his sister's wedding a success which means accompanying seamstress Ellie to Wichita Could there be a double wedding on the horizon?Fun story Dal is guardian to his younger sister since the death of their parents She's about to get married with her best friend Ellie promising to make her dress The day that the three are to leave for Wichita to get the supplies Clara falls down the stairs and breaks her ankle Dal thinks this will get him out of the trip but Clara insists that Dal take Ellie anyway Dal isn't looking forward to a trip with a woman who blames him for the death of her fatherEllie is both excited and scared about the trip Excited because she'll get to experience things that she's only dreamed of But scared too because she's never been to a city before When she finds out Clara has been hurt and can't go she's disappointed because she thinks the trip will be canceled but when she discovers that Dal wants her to go anyway it makes her even nervous She sees him as an arrogant know it all who looks down on her because of her fatherI loved the story from the moment Dal and Ellie met at the train station Ellie may feel that Dal looks down at her but she has her pride and she refuses to let her nervousness show I really enjoyed seeing her tell Dal exactly what she thought Even better was his reaction and how he began to look at her a bit differently I liked the train trip and how they got to know each other a little better It was sweet to see Dal's protectiveness when they got to the hotel and he faced down the snooty clerk It was fun to see the two butt heads the next morning I did get a little frustrated with the way that Ellie's pride kept getting in the way of the things Dal tried to do for herDal's protectiveness was still in full swing when he escorted her to the dress shop That was important when his ex girlfriend showed up and started making trouble He did go a bit overboard after he took her back to the hotel and I loved seeing how Ellie was determined on her own course but not stupid about carrying it out I loved seeing Dal come to realize that Ellie was than her father's daughter It was really sweet to see him want to make the Cattlemen's Ball special for herEllie also began to see Dal differently She saw that he wasn't really arrogant but confident His love for his sister was also plain to see which made her soften her attitude toward him I liked how she found it so easy to talk to him and their teasing was fun She found it hard to accept the things he wanted to do for her but the chance to look beautiful for him was impossible to pass up The confrontation with his ex at the ball was hysterical and I loved seeing how Ellie felt her own protectiveness toward Dal Her feelings for him had grown but she still feels that the daughter of a rustler doesn't belong with a rancherThe ending was really sweet with some interesting twists involving her brothers Dal was great with his determination to make her see that she belonged with him A real treat Three great authors and three wonderful stories The stories are engaging and each compels you on to read the next The romance with a back drop of the wild west is so exciting and captures the imagination The stories took me away to another time and place and made me wish I had just one story A good read I'm not sure what to sayThat was a bit of a shocking ending to meUsually I read Christian or sweet romances and the first two books were exactly that but the last book When a cowboy says I do by Lauri Robinson was extremely enjoyable until the wedding night Since I don't read books like this I'm not sure what category to label it but is was definitely not sweetHere's my reviews for the first two books The City Girl and the Rancher by Lynna BanningThis was a sweet tale of city woman and country man  I loved how neither one of them wanted what was laid before them but God had a bigger planHis Springtime Bride by Kathryn Albright Aww  What a touching story  The ending was so sweet  I love stories when the underdog gets the girl but this one ranks up with the best  Just beautiful I really liked story one and three With most anthologies I have no problem finding one story that doesn't seem up to the level of the others Fortunately all three of these tales are well written and worth the reader's time 45 stars for these three storiesTHE CITY GIRL AND THE RANCHER Lynna BanningClarissa Seaforth's life fell apart when her brother and sister in law died First her sister in law died in childbirth; Clarissa became the mother to her niece Then Clarissa's brother was lost at sea Now her home in Boston was gone and she found herself riding a train to meet her mail order husband in Smoke River OregonFour year old Emily strikes up a conversation with a napping rancher on the train When Gray Harris learns about the woman and her daughter he realizes that Clarissa has made a poor match; the man she is expecting to marry is the town drunk When her intended is not there to meet Clarissa she finds a job singing in a saloonGray rescues Clarissa and offers mother and daughter a roof and a job cooking on his ranch Planning to save her money to buy fares back to Boston Clarissa accepts the job even though she can't boil waterThis is an often used plot device and Lynna Banning didn't really add anything new However the story moved uickly and the couple seemed to grow together in a pleasing natural mannerHIS SPRINGTIME BRIDE Kathryn AlbrightThis is a surprisingly interesting story about Gabe Coulter who has returned from prison to find his parents' farm sold to a neighbor for back taxes The man who bought the land is the father of the young woman Riley Rawlins Gabe loves She went to visit relatives in Philadelphia and stayed for 14 yearsRiley thinks Gabe is still in prison when she returns to her father's ranch with her troubled son in tow When they meet as Riley gets to town they are both shocked Each has only some of the pieces of what happened when they parted Each struggles with personal feelings about each other and the pastThis is a tightly written story with lots of emotion; I think it is exceptionalWHEN A COWBOY SAYS I DO Lauri RobinsonWho can resist a Cinderella story? This one is lighthearted and breezy Dal Roberts ranch owner and older brother of a soon to be wed sister Clara has been roped into going to Wichita to shop for wedding dress fabric shoes etc Just before it is time to go Clara breaks her ankle and asks Dal to take her seamstress Ellie insteadDal who thinks a bit too much of himself and Ellie who thinks too little of herself set off together reluctantly Their families have been at odds for years; on the journey Dal and Ellie realize they have in common than they dreamedDal has always been too busy to notice Ellie and she knows that Dal is in a totally different social class Because of situations they find themselves in Dal realizes that he cares about Ellie At the same time Ellie learns that she could love someone like Dal There’s nothing like a spring wedding to brighten readers’ spirits after a long cold winter and three Western stars provide the sweet warmth they crave Charming heartwarming and tender with a bit of the roughness of the West this anthology is packed with a trio of uick paced lovely little romances that evoke different eras and locales and best of all what it’s like to fall in love 4 stars RT Book Reviews So I just read WHEN A COWBOY SAYS I DO was looking for something short to read in between books and this fit the bill It was WONDERFUL I really liked it and could relate to her saying I am a weed in a garden of flowers Hope the others in the book are as good too Light fluffy predictable but fun Wow These three authors are awesome to read their stories about spring weddings were greatYou will have to get a copy read for yourself Great book
