Book Review: The Vigilante's Bride
The Vigilante's Bride
By Yvonne Harris
Bethany House, 2010
English, 300 pgs.
Robbing a stagecoach on Christmas Eve and kidnapping a woman passenger is the last thing Luke Sullivan expects to do. He just wanted to reclaim the money stolen from him, but ends up with a feisty copperhaired orphan thrown over his shoulder who was on her way to marry Sullivan's bitter enemy. Emily McCarthy is an orphan out of options. Forced to marry because she was too old for her orphanage, she doesn't take kindly to her "rescue." Still she trusts God can turn any situation to good especially when it seems Sullivan may just be the man of her dreams. But Sullivan's crossed a dangerous man unused to losing and Emily may just be the prize he's unwilling to sacrifice.
Western Christian romance is a new genre for me. As someone who grew up raising cows I have some background with horses and whatnot. Of course, it's completely different than what I know, but anyway...I really liked this book. I read it in just over 24 hours so I had a hard time putting it down. There is a good amount of action and the romance is so sweet and refreshing. I just thought it was a nice change for me and I do recommend it.
I was provided with a copy of the book in exchange for a review. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
