Tried and True (Wild at Heart, #1)Lucie's Review: A humorous look at life, homesteading in Idaho Territory.

Kylie Wilde fought the Civil War disguised as a man, so when she files a for a claim in Idaho Territory she does so under the name she fought under. But when Aaron comes poking around, and Kylie falls off the roof into his waiting arms, it is only a matter of moments before he discovers her secret.

Kylie is glad that her secret is out, but on the other hand someone is trying to scare her off her claim.

This book is a fun western adventure full of action, interaction, and stellar characters. Including Kylie's two sisters Bailey and Shannon who also fought in the war at the urging of their father Cudgel Wilde.

Aaron Masterson, is the Idaho land agent, in charge of expediting the claims. A hero who is more than a bit clueless about women, and though he bungles things more than a few times, he learns from his mistakes and tries his best to protect Kylie and help her achieve her dreams, even though they are very different from his own.

Overall, this was a fast paced read, with plenty of great side characters who are sure to be featured in future books! A great book that I found impossible to put down! A fun read that put a smile on my face!

About the book: 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?
