Fire up your love of romance with Montana Rose, where Cassie Griffin, a seemingly spoiled pregnant woman, is widowed one day and wedded the next. Marrying handyman Red Dawson seems the only alternative to Cassie’s being hitched to a brutal rancher. But can this “china doll” bear exchanging smooth silk for coarse calico? Red was reluctant to be yoked to an unbeliever, but sometimes a man has no choice. Will Red change Cassie’s heart by changing her name? Wade Sawyer is obsessed with saving Cassie from a marriage of convenience. How far will he go make her his own?

Publisher's Weekly

Christian novelist Connealy (Petticoat Ranch) writes to tickle the funny bone and tease heartstrings with the first in her newest series, Montana Marriages. In the Montana Territory of 1875, sweet and naïve Cassie Griffin's abusive husband dies, leaving Cassie no choice but to choose a new husband the same day she buries her first. With women scarce and lawlessness abounding, Cassie reluctantly agrees to marry Red Dawson, also reluctant, who offers to marry her only to save her from an immoral scoundrel who's been stalking her for months. Immediately traveling to Red's ranch, Cassie realizes how little she knows about life, love and faith. In turn, Red quickly realizes how brutalized his new wife was by her first husband. Slowly, sometimes painstakingly so, Cassie learns to trust her instincts and begins to blossom. No doubt, Connealy's characters are cute. Yet there is a systematic heavy-handedness on the subject of submission that gets in the way of what could have been a delightful story of unfolding marital love.

Editorial Reviews

Readers will enjoy seeing Cassie blossom like a tight bud opening up to the sunlight under Red’s love and encouragement. The book both humorously and dramatically illustrates the difference a harsh man and a kind, caring man Can make in a woman’s life. As Cassie learns to receive Red’s love, she also opens up to accept that God loves her. Montana Rose, the first book in Mary Coneally’s Montana Marriages series, is a rollick in the old west that will pull at your heart strings and is sure to keep you smiling.

Mary Connealy has again written a romance that will make you laugh while at the same time sit you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. Cassie and Reds story is packed full of love and trust for each other as well as God. Ms Connealy has the ability to make you feel like you are in the setting with these strong human-like characters. Montana Rose is an uplifting story that will keep you turning the pages long into the night. Divide, Montana is a place I cant wait to visit again in the next book of the series.



 


Montana Rose was a thrilling read. Mary Connealy pens a read so true to form in the Wild West. She made the story so factual that I wanted to jump through time after reading how women were treated. That was so very true. I could only feel compassion for Cassie and her problematic life. Then there is Red and Wade, one cannot help but be torn between these two remarkable men. Ms. Connealy digs deep into the hearts of these three powerful characters to make an extraordinary tale that left this reader in complete awe.






Women who like marriage-of-convenience stories will read this book to see if the love of God and one determined man can change a woman's heart.

    This story was just OK for me - I don't know if I would read it again. All the God Parts were terrific, but I did not care for the story line of a young women letting a man rule her. I know it is possible, but that really bothers me!

    I did enjoy the end with the bad guy.

    The first few pages of Montana Rose was so sad and I thought what is this book going to be about ?

    I loved the book. Mary Connealy did a wonderful job of sending the characters into your heart. I smiled and few times giggled at some of the things Cassie put Red through. Red was a strong male that lived by the Golden Rule. Cassie was very innocence of normal everyday things.

    I'm sure in the future I will read more by Mary Connealy and will look forward to the other 2 books of the Montana Marriages.

    Red reluctantly marries Cassie immediately following the burial of her husband. Only days into the marriage, Red realizes that everything he assumed about Cassie is wrong. His compassion for her wins out and he vows to make this marriage of convenience a real marriage that works for both of them. Cassie only wants to stay out of trouble and make Red happy. Will they be able to overcome all that stands between them and find love?

    What a wonderful introduction to Mary Connealy! Montana Rose is hilarious at times and suspenseful and romantic at other times. The escapades that Red and Cassie go through while Cassie is learning to take care of the animals are reminiscent of the Amelia Bedelia books I read as a child and had me rolling. It was interesting to get both perspectives on the same events and see just how different their thinking was. Connealy also provided a realistic picture of ranch life in the late 1800s. I never thought about what it would be like to have a baby in those times! I enjoyed this light-hearted, hope-filled story and am interested to read the rest of the series. [4 stars]

    I received a free copy of this book from Barbour Publishing via Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.
