"Bound for Sin" is a very lovely western romance. I loved it from the first page.
This book had a lot going for it. Georgiana and Matt were engaging characters who captivated my attention. Matt was so sweet and adorably awkward, but also lonely so I was genuinely cheering for him from the moment he rode into town. Georgiana was a strong mother who found a way to make the best of a bad situation. Her inner monologue was charming, especially when her mischievous children were running amok. Between the children's escapades and Geogiana's exasperated musings helped to liven up the plot.
This book was a pleasure to read all the way to the end. I connected with the rich characters right away. It was as emotional as it was passionate. The author beautifully crafted in a few twists and suspenseful situations. She threw in the whole gamut of feelings from heartbreaking to laugh out loud moments.
Bound For Sin was quite an adventurous reading experience from start to finish. It was a unique story that captured my interest and will have me following the series anxiously waiting for the next book.
From the author of Bound for Eden comes a new historical Western romance that tests life and love on the Oregon Trail.
WANTED: A resourceful frontiersman, for the purpose of matrimony...
When Georgiana Bee Blunt advertises for a husband, she's not looking for a handsome man, or a smart man, or a charming man. What she wants is a brute. A no-nonsense, capable backwoodsman who won't trouble her with talk of love; she just wants someone to get her and her fatherless children safely to California. Matt Slater seems to fit the bill perfectly. The man looks like he could wrestle a bear and not even break a sweat. The only problem is he doesn't want a wife. Well, not the only problem...
Truth be told, Georgiana has more problems than she knows what to do with. Left holding a gold claim by her not-so-dearly departed husband, Georgina finds her eldest son held ransom by the sinister Hec Boehm and his henchmen, and herself facing a journey of more than two thousand miles to rescue him. With four children in tow. And no nanny.
All Matt Slater wants is to be left alone. He's spent most his life on his lonesome in the wilderness, and he's comfortable that way. But then a widow with big blue eyes and the tenacity of a buffalo turns his entire life upside down and before he knows it he's playing caretaker to a pack of kids...and trying not to succumb to their mother's charms.
