Wild West Brides by Lori Copeland ~ Review

Wild West Brides: 3 Old West RomancesLucie's Review:

Will the three Claxton brothers find love?

In this three in one novel collection from best-selling author, Lori Copeland, Cole, Beau, and Cass meet their matches. Veterans of the Civil War, they proudly served their country, now they are on their way home to Missouri, to find themselves again, and return to civilian life after the war.

In the first story, The Peacemaker, Cole and Beau witness the robbing of a stagecoach and by the time they reach it, the robbers are gone. They find only a young woman, Wynne Elliot, holding a gun on them. Cole takes an instant dislike to her, but beau convinces her that they are good guys and invites her to stay with them when he finds that she has no where to go.

When Cole finds out that Wynne is looking for his youngest brother, Cass, he joins her, keeping his distance but in awe of her determination.

I loved the verbal sparring between Cole and Wynne, it was fun humorous read.

In the second story, Charity Burk, is alone on a homestead claim that she needs to prove up on, so she prays for a man. She looks out the window and sees a man being attacked by wolves, she rescues the man, but is then called away to help at a birthing. Two squaws show up, to care for the man, who's name is Beau, but they now think that he belongs to them! Will Charity be able to rescue him, not once, but twice?

In this story I like how Charity and Beau help each other out, and how they grow to care foe each other, and comes to terms with the second chance at love they are given.

To say that Cass ans Susanne are off to a rocky start, may be an understatement in the third story of the collection, has she tricks her father in to forcing Cass to marry her so that she can get out of Kansas to St. Louis, and six years later she is still up to her old tricks.

A humorous tale, as Cass and Susanne transport 9 orphans to Kansas. I liked how Cass bonded with the boys and taught them things about being a man.

Overall, a splendid collection of stories. Definitely plenty of fun for lovers of western romance.
