Publisher's Description

Enjoy Bestselling Author Karen Witemeyer's Terrific New Romance!

Men are optional. That's the credo Emma Chandler's suffragette aunts preached and why she started a successful women's colony in Harper's Station, Texas. But when an unknown assailant tries repeatedly to drive them out, Emma admits they might need a man after all. A man who can fight--and she knows just the one.

Malachi Shaw finally earned the respect he craved by becoming an explosives expert for the railroad. Yet when Emma's plea arrives, he bolts to Harper's Station to repay the girl who once saved his life. Only she's not a girl any longer. She's a woman with a mind of her own and a smile that makes a man imagine a future he doesn't deserve.

As the danger intensifies, old feelings grow and deepen, but Emma and Mal will need more than love to survive.

    Karen Witemeyer has done it once again. I just loved this story. The characters were realistic and interesting. I always love her heroes and Mal was no exception. Any woman would love a man like him. I read one reviewer who did not like the women's colony angle but I had no problem with that. In my opinion men were not slammed in this book.

    Also just a note about CBD.....the originally sent me the wrong book. When I called their attention to that fact, they quickly resent this title and insisted that I keep the other book as well. I am very happy with my purchase.

    This is an easy read. A novel that has a little bit of mystery but isn't scary. I really enjoyed it and enjoy books written by Karen Witemeyer. I bought it to add to our church library.

    Emma Chandler is on a mission. She has opened a town that is a sanctuary where women from all walks of life can come and live in peace. Unfortunately, not everyone in Harpers Station is on board with the idea. Threats toward the women begin to appear so Emma does the only thing she knows, she sends a telegram to her childhood friend Malachi Shaw.

    Malachi Shaw, our reluctant hero, has been in love with Emma since they were children and wastes no time riding to Emma's rescue, and although he would rather be tortured then to admit his feelings to Emma, Malachi cannot resist the temptation to see her again,

    Karen Witemeyer has produced another first rate book. Her character are unbelievably well written. Emma is an independent and smart, yet humble enough to realize her need for help.

    These two make a wonderful couple, each becoming more dependent on the other as well as God as their relationship begins to grow and blossom. Their relationship was amazingly realistic and believable and it added so much to the story.

    Worth a note, there were several great secondary characters, and among these I can see several having their own stories. Emma's aunts Bertie and Henry were a delight and they added significantly to the storyline.

    The story moved along well enough to keep the reader engaged. I would highly recommend this book, or any others that this author has written.

    What a cute book. Some humor and romance and mystery all in one. The story starts out when Emma Chandler finds Malachi in her Aunts barn. He is cold and wet and she gives him her coat and clothes and shoes. They become childhood friends and her Aunts let him stay. He always protected her and watched over her. H really cared for her. He had to leave because of a problem he had when he tried to protect her from a rich boy. He had to leave or face charges. Then the book shows them grown. He is a blaster for the railroad and she started a town for women who were abused and mistreated. The town she started was being attacked by someone and she needed his help. When he got her letter he rushed to help her. He called her his angel but never felt he was good enough for her. She always cared for Malachi and when he comes to help the town from a bad guy there love for each other develops. Can not wait for book Two to come out. Love her books.

    If you want a lighthearted romance that is easy to read, then Karen Witemeyers books are perfect for you. Her characters live in a place where everything goes right, and when it doesnt, you can bet that no one gets hurt and the bad guy has a patch over his eye and scowl that will scare small children. (not really but I think you get the picture.) They may not be the most realistic but they are sure to leave you with the warm and fuzzies. No Other Will Do fits right into her persona. While I might not like to read these books all the time, I do really enjoy them. Especially on the bad days when you just need more happy endings in your life. While this book is considered Christian fiction I found a certain topic that dont necessarily go hand and hand with the Bible, feminism. The Bible clearly stated that while men and woman are created equal, the head of the woman is man, and the head of the man is Christ (1 Corinthians 11:3). Sadly, the main theme of this book was that men were optional. Throughout the whole book, the woman badmouthed men. I was very disappointed in the agenda that Karen Whitemeyer seemed to be pushing on me. I am defiantly not under the illusion that all men are perfect, I just dont think that any man deserves less of our respect just because he is a man. Thankfully, I was able to talk with Karen Whitemeyer about this subject through e-mail and I was very pleased with what she had to say. This is part of her response when I voiced my concerns with what she seemed to be saying:



    It was never my intentions to push a feministic agenda or to bash men in this story. My intention instead was to empower woman to help one another whenever they see a sister in need. To look upon one another not with judgment but with compassion. To accept those society rejects and help them find their confidence in the Lord.



    I really wish I had read her e-mail beforehand, or that she had made her view a little clearer. I still dont recommend this book because of the agenda it seems to be pushing, but I do encourage you to continue to read her books. I have no doubts that Karen Witemeyer agrees with what the bible says about feminism, but her book, sadly, does not. She is still one of my favorite authors, thats probably the reason I was so upset with this book, I had too high expectations. I have no complaints with the quality of writing. It was really good in that regard. I feel strongly about the issue of feminism (in case you hadnt noticed J) and I feel like no one talks about it. If you agree with the views in this book or just dont care, then this would be a good book to read. While I dont personally recommend this particular book, I do love most all her other ones. Personally, my favorites are Head in the Clouds and Short Straw Bride.
