Mr.jeka
I enjoyed this story. It had a little of everything, romance, drama, excitement and a bit of mystery. I liked the characters too. Well done. I'll be reading more of your books.
Cordalas
Great story with several "sub"-stories all intertwined. Great character development. I really liked this book especially for .99 cents! Am looking forward to reading more by this author.

I am a big historical romance reader, and I have read many of Ms. Stover's books, some sizzle and some fizzle. It's OK.

The story begins in London in 1888 as Molly Riordan sets out with her mistress, Lady Elizabeth Summersby for America where Lady E is to wed the man who, in a one night encounter at a London masquerade ball, impregnated her with his child. In Colorado, Dirk Ballinger has a cattle ranch, and there he has promised to do the honorable thing.

On the way to the ranch, bandits called the Lovejoy Gang attack the coach Molly and Lady E are traveling in. In a bizarre coincidence, the father Molly is searching for is the driver. She is unaware, of course. As he is dying from a gunshot wound, her father tells the sheriff, who comes to their rescue with Dirk Ballinger, that the woman the bandits took off with (Lady E) is the maid and the woman left behind (Molly) is Lady E. Got that?

Ray Lovejoy, the head of the bandits and Dirk’s illegitimate half brother, has the same green eyes as Dirk so that Molly thinks they are the same man.

While Molly is still suffering a head wound, “semi-conscious and drugged with laudanum,” Dirk (thinking Molly is his betrothed) has a reverend perform a marriage ceremony. Molly is unaware. (That such could not be a valid marriage is never mentioned.) Then, concerned about the pregnancy, Dirk has a doctor examine her (Molly). The doctor just taps her stomach and never looks beyond that to see she has suffered a miscarriage or that she is a virgin. Instead, absent any blood in that region, the doctor tells Dirk she must have lost the baby in the attack by the bandits. The whole thing was a bit improbable.

It takes some time for Molly to tell Dirk the entire story and for Dirk to tell her about his half brother. And then he persuades her to let everyone believe she is Lady E and his wife as they set off to find Lady E (who all believe is “the maid”).

It seemed everyone was hiding a lie in this story as many secrets are revealed at the end. I had trouble thinking of Dirk as honorable because all the time he was planning on marrying Lady E, he was making moves on Molly. And Molly, who knows all this, is allowing herself to fall for Dirk. Ah, well, this is that kind of romance. Somehow, Stover managed to hold all the threads in her writer's hand. And did I mention that everyone seems related to everyone? So you see, this story has many twists and turns on the way to love. If you're looking for an unusual Western with an Irish heroine, you'll find this one entertaining.
First off, I have to say this book has one of the nicest romance novel covers I've ever seen. The picturesque setting of a farmhouse in a tranquil valley in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains invites the prospective reader to pick up the book in order to ascertain if what's inside can possibly live up to the beautiful cover. I'm pleased to report it does. In spades.
Molly Riordan has come to America as a maid accompanying Lady Elizabeth Summersby who is with child and has been brought to America to marry the child's father, Dirk Ballinger, in Colorado. Molly also sees this as an opportunity to find her father, Niall Riordan, who had left Ireland for America years previously. The stage carrying Lady Elizabeth and Molly to their destination is held-up by outlaws and when it is found that Lady Elizabeth is to marry Dirk Ballinger, Lady Elizabeth is taken hostage.
Meanwhile Dirk Ballinger comes to the rescue just in time to hear the mortally wounded stage driver say that Molly is Lady Elizabeth. Molly figures he must just be confused. Dirk thinks Molly is the one is confused and believes her to be Lady Elizabeth, the woman who his half-brother, outlaw Ray Lovejoy, got in a compromising position when he was in England masquerading as Dirk. Dirk is ready to do the right thing and marry Lady Elizabeth in Ray's stead to give the child the Ballinger name. Dirk is also convinced that it's Lovejoy and his men who have taken Lady Elizabeth.
After some convincing Molly is eventually able to convince Dirk that she is not Lady Elizabeth. But in order to help him find Ray Lovejoy and his gang, he asks her not to reveal her identity to anyone for the time being and she agrees. He embarks on a journey into the mountains to save Lady Elizabeth and Molly when she hears that he is going towards the town of Serendipity, Molly pleads with him to let her accompanying him as this was the town her father was last known to be. On the trip into the mountains Dirk and Molly cannot deny their attraction for one another even though they know he must marry another.
Ray, it appears is pretty much a reluctant outlaw and readers eventually see his softer, more human side. But no so for "Desperado" an outlaw who accompanied Dirk and his gang in the stage hold-up and who has more sinister motives.
Deb Stover has gifted readers with a fabulous story full of sexual tension, passion, and poignancy. Her secondary characters are as real and fully developed as the main characters and it is wonderful to see several additional romances emerge.
Particularly touching is the romance between Lance, the son of Dirk's housekeeper, and Elena, the daughter of his cook. For Lance, although a bit "slow" is a high-functioning young man afflicted with what we know today to be Down Syndrome. Their relationship is sure to put a smile the face of readers.
At a time when many have heard cries that the western historical romance is dead, Deb Stover has given us a story that certainly proves this is not the case. This is one of the best western historicals I have read in a very long time. I enjoyed everything about this book from the setting to the characters to the love scenes. The plot moves along in such a way revealing secrets just a bit at a time in order to keep the reader turning pages to find out what the characters' reaction is going to be to certain secrets already revealed to the reader.
Put quite simply, this is an outstanding read, one that happened to get this reviewer out of her reading slump. Brava Ms. Stover. Long live the western historical romance!
