When Cassie does the unthinkable and runs off with another man just weeks before her Christmas wedding to Major Ethan Hartley, she casually refuses to inform him and sets the whole problem in Sue-Ellen's lap.
Sue-Ellen has a problem of her own -- she is secretly in love with the handsome soldier. Hoping to spare him the humiliation of arriving to marry a bride that wouldn't appear, she sets out on a dangerous journey to Fort Clark, Texas, where he's stationed.
The stagecoach is set upon by robbers, Sue-Ellen nearly drowns, and she arrives at the fort penniless, without even a ticket to return home. Even worse, Ethan can't stand the sight of her since she reminds him of her sister's betrayal.
It takes Sue-Ellen's patient, steadfast, caring ways to thaw Ethan's heart and restore his faith in love. Will their new-found connection last when Cassandra, tired of her fling, arrives wanting Ethan to marry her?
dn65Georgia, USAAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Very pleased with ebook purchasesMarch 2, 2012dn65Georgia, USAAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The setting for this book is in the late 1800's and involves cowboys, Indians, bandits and rescue by the cavalry. I really enjoy reading period novels and this story of a young woman going over and beyond her own expectations to fulfill a promise was no exception. Full of adventure as well as hardship, this book was exciting and enjoyable to read.
DianeAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Sweet and Charming Romance!April 7, 2011DianeAge: 55-65Gender: femaleI had already read and enjoyed reading "Christmas Stranger and "Secrets of Old Santa Fe" by Marion Kelley Bullock, so I looked forward to reading her December release, "Christmas Bride." I was not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed reading this historical romance. I liked how the heroine, Sue-Ellen Grayson, grew throughout the book. In the beginning, she was kind but pampered by her well-do parents and maid, Prudie. Right away in Chapter One, we feel Sue-Ellen's frustration with her spoiled sister, Cassandra. She can't believe that engaged Cassie doesn't even have the decency to call her wedding off to the handsome Major Ethan Hartley, but instead plans to elope with an artist named Umberto. Although Sue-Ellen tries to talk some sense into Cassie, she refuses to let the Major know that their engagement is broken.
Shy Sue-Ellen convinces her parents to let her travel by stagecoach from San Antonio to Fort Clark to tell Ethan in person. She thinks just sending a letter is too cruel, but she is unaware of the dangers facing her in traveling by stagecoach through the turbulent country. Indians, high river waters, stagecoach robbers, and motherless children are just some of the things Sue-Ellen has to learn to deal with while traveling to deliver her news. Sue-Ellen rises to her harsh circumstances with a strength that she never thought she had.
I loved how Sue-Ellen's character developed throughout "Christmas Bride." I enjoyed reading how she adapted to each new hardship with a willingness to learn. I highly recommend this sweet but exciting historical romance.
BJ2 Stars Out Of 5CheesyMarch 22, 2011BJQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2This book was very cheesy. There was too much emphasis on the stagecoach ride to the fort and all the drama that went with it. Then the characters fell in love and out of love too quickly. I'll think twice before reading another one of her books.
bookwormAge: 25-34Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Storyline choppyMarch 15, 2011bookwormAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1The storyline was choppy and unbelievable. The book would have been better if more believable events and details appeared in the book. I mean seriously, how much can happen to one stage coach headed west? I understand that the book is a work of fiction, but I feel that the author over killed the drama at the first of the story, and didn't have enough at the end of the book. I would say that this book was lackluster at best.
