Short Book Description:

Saddle up for a wildly fun ride with the Wilde sisters!

Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister–and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It’s a risk–they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as “boys”–but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East.

Local land agent Aaron Masterson is fascinated with Kylie from the moment her long hair falls from her cap. But now that he knows her secret, can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government? And when someone tries to force Kylie off her land, does he have any hope of convincing her that marrying him and settling on the frontier is the better option for her future?

My Thoughts:

Having read a couple of Mary Connealy’s book before, I was excited to get this one in the mail. Mary has become my favorite author for comedic western romance. All the characters were likable and I really enjoyed ‘getting to know’ all of the sisters in the Wilde family.

This book was really well written and the plot was thought out perfectly. It’s now one of my favorite books that have been published this year and I can’t wait for the rest of series.  I couldn’t put it down and finished it within a couple of hours after I started reading.

I like a good mystery involved with my romance and this book delivered. Just pure romance is just not for me, but throw in some action and adventure then I’ll be sure to read it.

I’ve got to say my favorite character would have to be Aaron and then Kylie. They were so likable and characters that a person could relate to. I would definitely recommend this book and author to anyone that enjoys a good Christian novel that has clean and pure romance.
