    Horse lovers, Pony Express fans, midwest history fans, this book is for you! The book deals more with life at waystations than the riders. If you enjoy novellas set in the 1800s, you will like this book. I learned a lot about the dangers faced by people at the waystations which were usually rather isolated. This is a good book to read when you only have a short time to read one of the novellas. If I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be Echoes of the Heart by Donna Schlachter. I received my copy of The Pony Express Romance Collection from Maureen Lang. This is my honest opinion.

    The Pony Express Romance Collection

    Lovers of historical fiction will enjoy getting lost in nine stories about the Pony Express, which ran from 1860-1861, delivering mail across the country in just ten days. I love that these stories told so much history, while still allowing readers to experience the emotions of the characters.

    The first story is A Place to Belong by Barbara Tifft Blakey. Abigail lives with her uncle and cousin at the Pony Express station. Also there is Jacob, a young man waiting for Gods leading in his life. When a Pony Express rider offers to take Abigail back East where she grew up before her parents passed away, she is excited and hopeful. Jacob doesnt trust the young rider though. Will Abigail find her home? Or will she discover that she is already there?

    Second, we have An Unlikely Hero by Mary Davis. BethAnn and her little sister Molly are on the run from debt. When their family got sick, they had to have help to pay for everything and got in over their heads. The collector is a cruel man, intent on taking advantage of the two young girls. Fox is a rider at the Express station and as he and BethAnn develop feelings for each other, BethAnn worries about what will happen when their past catches up to them. Will they be able to make it together? Or will her past forever haunt her future?

    Next, The Gamblers Daughter, by Darlene Franklin, is the story of Caroline Adams and her search for her father, who left when she was very small. She arrives at the last address she has for him, a Pony Express station, to find that he is gone. The current station master finds an old diary of his and helps her discover where he might be. Along the way, romance blossoms, but Martin has secrets of his own. Can they overcome the sorrow in their lives to make way for a happy future?

    In the fourth story, Her Lonely Heart, by Cynthia Hickey, widow Sadie Mathewson runs the station after the death of her husband. A young rider is injured while on the Express and his brother comes to take care of him. Luke is a doctor from the city and he learns how much he loves the country. Will he also find love for Sadie?

    Story number five is My Dear Adora, by Maureen Lang. Chip has been tasked with delivering some letters that were robbed during a raid on a Pony Express run. One is to Adora, a young lady who is trying to make her way in San Francisco without her family. Due to circumstances beyond his control, he must read the letter in order to deliver it. In the process, he begins to imagine her and what might be when they meet. However, when they meet, she also has another man who is interested in her affections. Can Chip convince her that he alone can carry her heart, just as he did her letter?

    The next story is Ride Into My Heart, by Debby Lee. Kimimela works at a Pony Express station and Gabe is a rider. Both are half Indian and have experienced the struggle of trying to fit into two different worlds. As they learn to survive, they also learn to rely on each other. When Kimimela is kidnapped, can Gabe save her? And can they form a future together, despite the pain of the past?

    Echoes of the Heart, by Donna Schlachter, is the story of Catherine and Benjamin. She is a mail order bride there on false pretenses. He is a crippled station master who is bitter and hurting. When they start to let one another close, they find that love can happen in the most unlikely of ways.

    In Abundance of the Heart, by Connie Stevens, Fletcher finds his horse trainer abusing horses and sends him off. As he tries to care for the horses, with no knowledge of how, Mercy and her brothers arrive. She immediately takes over the care of the horses, showing patience and love while helping them to heal. Can she do the same for Fletcher?

    In the final story, Embattled Hearts, by Pegg Thomas, Alannah and her brother must escape their abusive stepfather and his sons. They seek shelter in a cove of trees, only to be discovered by the station master Stewart. He tries to help them, and in protecting them, also brings healing to Alannahs heart.

    I truly enjoyed all of these stories and I would recommend them to anyone who enjoys historical fiction with a dash of romance and happy endings. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for my honest reviews.

    The Pony Express Romance Collection ~ Barbara Tifft Blakey, Mary Davis, Darlene Franklin, Cynthia Hickey, Maureen Lang, Debby Lee, Donna Schlachter, Connie Stevens, Pegg Thomas, 2017

    Historic Express Mail Route Delivers Nine Inspiring Romances

    What could be more fun than joining the Wild West and the NINETEEN-month Pony Express?? New News! received from Maureen Lang.

    I was surprised to find the short-lived Express ~ perhaps safer than the train robberies, the stagecoach holdups, and who knows what else ~ especially when they knew the mail pouch contained long-awaited pay by many. Merely my speculation!

    I will be highlighting My Dear Adora written by author Maureen Lang ~ thank you for honoring me with a copy of The Pony Express Romance Collection, Maureen!!

    Setting Time Period

    San Francisco ~ Spring, 1862

    My Review

    Adora Denley had arrived at her destination months earlier, but due to an accusation of duplicity and an unsavory announcement of her character, she is erroneously let go from her employment and... livelihood. Thankful for the harboring at Miss Roseleen's Boardinghouse, she is taught kitchen skills to alleviate Roseleen's duties. A shelter from the storm of life.

    Chip Nolan had hunted down a stolen mochila, the saddle pack filled with mail that Lewy, his little brother, had been carrying as a Pony Express rider. Assured he would uphold his brother's name with Lewy being left for dead, Chip was finally about to complete his deliveries. Upon arriving in San Francisco, he was now at his last stop, finding a Miss Adora Denley.

    Appearing dandy Dirk Stanford has arrived ahead of Chip Nolan and has indebted himself to the aid of Miss Denley's social standings. He has encouraged her that he is just the one who can bring her peace and security by staying by his side for now and the future.

    An unriddling is set when the newest boarder arrives. Returning Jed Malone; he had been among the first of the forty-niners. I always like it when a stabilizer comes along to set things straight toward what is right.

    The Mochila: detail from Pony Express

    a mochila, or covering of leather,

    was thrown over the saddle

    I really liked this novella! I am eager to read the remaining eight stories.

    Embattled Hearts by Pegg Thomas is the only book in The Pony Express Romance Collection that I have had the privilege of reading so far, but if the other stories are even close to this one, this is a must-have collection. The story line was strong and the chapter hooks at the end of each chapter left you wanting more. Very well written.
