About the book: A Lone Star Brides book.

Marty Dandridge Olson is ready to leave behind the pain of the past.
Answering an advertisement for a "Lone Star bride," she leaves her Texas ranch and heads to Denver to marry a man she doesn't know.
Jake Wythe is the man waiting for her.
Burned by love, he marries now simply to satisfy the board of Morgan Bank, which believes a man of his standing in society should be wed. Together Jake and Marty agree they are done with romance and love and will make this nothing more than a marriage of convenience.
When missing money and a collapsing economy threaten his job, Jake's yearning to return to ranching grows ever stronger, much to Marty's dismay. But a fondness has grown between them, as well, further complicating matters.
What will happen when their relationship shifts in unexpected ways . . . and dreams and secrets collide?

My Take:
I loved this book from beginning to end! Mail order brides is something that I find very intriguing, so when I read the synopsis I knew I would enjoy it.
Marty wants to escape Texas, her husband was killed and she has no desire to stay in Texas. She answers an add for a bride and moves to Denver, Colorado. On the way, the stagecoach that she is traveling in gets attacked by bandits and she protects all the travelers using her rifle and shooting at them. When the story is told she is regaled as a hero. When she arrives, Jake picks her up and they go straight to the church to get married. This is a marriage of "convenience", Jake is needing a wife because of his job. However, working at the Morgan Bank could be a detriment to his health. 
Both Marty and Jake have secrets, and as they unfold their relationship is transformed.
Tracie paints with wide brush strokes and you become part of the story. This will be one of my tops for 2014. Highly recommended!
