gracie4 Stars Out Of 5Nothing Short of WondrousFebruary 24, 2022gracieQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Quite engaging and, altho' the geography is not quite right in some places, it is an enjoyable story.
I can't remember if it was in this book or one of the others in this particular order ... But I get really disgusted at the erroneous statement that the rider "kicked his/her horse in the flank". That is a terrible error in many of the "westerns and western romance" books that I've read!!!!! (It is anatomically almost an impossibility ... especially for a side-saddle rider, to do. It would be wise for the authors and editors, to study the anatomy of a horse!
Digging4PearlsShippensburg, PAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Fun Slice of HistoryFebruary 24, 2021Digging4PearlsShippensburg, PAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I recently finished reading a book by an author I haven't read before. Nothing Short of Wondrous is book two in Regina Scott's American Wonders Collection. Kate Tremaine is a young widow living in Yellowstone National Park in 1886. The widow owns and operates a hotel in the park. I loved the vivid descriptions of the country, wildlife, and geysers in this book. It made me feel like I was there along with the heroine and hero. The story and emotions of the characters had real depth and were well thought out. I look forward to reading more books in this series.

TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5They'll both do anything to protect Yellowstone...November 21, 2020TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5If you live within a several state radius of Yellowstone National Park most of the major landmarks will be familiar to you even if you haven't actually seen them in person. When John Colter reported what he had seen people simply didn't believe him. Later it was finally recognized for the treasure it was and is. A landscape of mystery and extremes. The title of the second book in Regina Scott's wonderful American Wonders Collection series is most fitting. Yellowstone is truly Nothing Short Of Wondrous.
I was thrilled when I saw that Nothing Short Of Wondrous was set in Yellowstone. After reading the first book in the America Wonders Collection series I knew that this book would be an exciting tale of romance and adventure and that Regina Scott would bring the setting to life in a most vivid way. And, that's exactly what she did.
I actually learned quite a bit while reading this book. I had no idea that the Army had taken charge of Yellowstone for quite a few years or that the early hotels vied for 10 year leases to operate within the park. The whole thing was quite fascinating to me.
The characters were great, I especially fell in love with Kate's adorable little boy, and the story was an enjoyable read. Whether historical romance is your thing or you like to 'travel' in your reading Nothing Short Of Wondrous and the American Wonders Collection from Regina Scott would would be a great choice.

Leona J. Atkinson--Leonas Lines5 Stars Out Of 5Informative and InterestingNovember 20, 2020Leona J. Atkinson--Leonas LinesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you like American Historical Fiction coupled with Romance then you will surely enjoy this book. The story is based in Yellowstone National Park, September 1886.
Vivid descriptions of the Park's natural beauty make the story come visually alive, and if you have never visited the Park, after reading this story you will be yearning to go see it in person.
For me, reading this was a learning experience as I have never been to Yellowstone, nor read much about it, therefore reading about the boiling geysers and heated paint pots was very intriguing to me.
Other than the descriptions of nature, this book also spoke about the role of the US Calvary's control of Yellowstone in 1886 and how the enlisted men were sent there to patrol and protect the land from poachers and vandals.
Though much of this book's story is based on historical facts, the romantic fictional story woven throughout that makes it even more interesting as the characters are quite believable and fit in the story so well that the reader has no problem imagining it all as real.
There is a bit of fictional drama, romance, conflict, mystery and intrigue sprinkled throughout the actual historical facts that keep the reader's interest until the very end.
This was my first time reading one of Regina Scott's books, and I have to say I am very glad to have had the chance to do so. I do hope to read more of her work, and will be looking into reading her first book in this American Wonders Collection: "No Distance Too Grand" which is another fictional American Historical Romance about the American Grand Canyon set in 1871.
