STORY LINE, PLOTTING AND DEVELOPMENT:
This is a wonderful collection of western romance stories of strength, love, romance, adversity, and faith in God. Each author is talented in story-crafting, plotting, and development. These stories are so well written and developed, if you did not know you were reading 9 different authors, you would think one author wrote the stories contained in this book. The authors are in harmony with each other in regard to writing style and crafting.
Each story depicts the character's faith in God, in his love for us and his caring and each face situations that God has in hand and will direct. The authors do not push or preach, but gracefully created stories of faith and romance. In the 1800's, courting was held in a different light than our day. Courting was a very serious affair and was not entered into without marriage in mind. Women had few choices in this time period and marriage was the only option most woman could consider.
The settlers of our country were strong faith based people; the authors skillfully portrayed these characteristics in each book. I loved the humor found in some of the stories. The sweet character of the men and women was refreshing.
The stories are clean, well written, and clear. You will find mail order brides, discouraged and desperate women (some with child to support), lonesome strong ranchers, cowboys who need mothers for their children, and you will find these characters are strong, independent, smart men and women; they will all find the love of a lifetime.
This collection was a delight to read. This book is suitable for anyone that loves well written, well developed, and plotted stories which contain faith, love, and strength of character.
GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Cowboys Need BridesMarch 17, 2016GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This collection of nine novellas was very entertaining. I enjoyed the variety of the stories. Space does not permit telling much about each story and I dont want to skip any. The stories include a ranchers poetry-writing daughter who is wooed by a cowboy who hopes to win her with his poetry; a Texas rancher who asks his aunt to bring him two songbirds from Boston and gets a redhead and a blonde instead; a female horse trainer who can train better than any of the men on her fathers ranch but is shut out by the cavalry horse buyer who refuses to buy mustangs trained by a woman; a woman who has agreed to marry a store owner after just a few letters but gets sidetracked at the ranch of an eligible bachelor after a wagon accident; a Kansas cowhand who signs up for a class on Learning to Be a Gentleman with the hope of learning more about the young lady his cousin is trying to match him with; a mother who arrives by train bringing a young widow and her two daughters without warning her son in advance that she is not coming alone; a widowed rancher who hires a young woman to teach his tomboy daughter to be a lady; a cowboy who returns to the ranch that once belonged to his father before it was gambled away and a ranchers daughter who has been entrusted with the task of choosing the new foreman from the entrants in a competition; and an Englishman, who wants to be a rancher more than an English lord, who has hired a young woman as foreman because his dearest friend has recommended her. The stories are rather quick reads that hold the interest. I recommend the book to all who love action-packed romantic stories with good values and faith added in.
Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is a wonderful collection of short historical romances.March 17, 2016Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5These great novellas are all set in the time period from 1839-1895. The authors that were brought together to write each of these stories is fantastic. Each writing style is just different enough that you can easily tell they were written by different people. I thoroughly enjoyed the accuracy to the time period for each story. There is quite a variety of characters throughout these stories that kept me interested in reading them.
Loves Sweet Storm by Miralee Ferrell
I think that the thing I liked the most about this story is that it was a great reminder of the need to speak honestly about our feelings. We shouldnt just go along with what others have planned for us.
The Cowboy Poet by Susan Page Davis
The thing that really caught my attention in this story was how teasing affects people, even adults.
I really like the fact that with these short stories it is easy to take just a little time each day and finish a whole story in just a couple of days. They are brief escapes from our everyday lives.
I received a free eBook copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

I found these ladies quite a mix of talents who each in there own way attracted a cowboy who may have liked or disliked them at first.. Each author had their own way of telling a tale and I liked them all! If you like historical romance, this ride into the old west is a wonderful way to escape for awhile. I was gifted a copy by one of the authors through NetGalley for review.
