  • 4.5 stars: My favorite book by Linda Broday!

    "You're not alone, Jack. You have me. I'll stand by your side through sunny days and storms." I just can't get enough of Linda Broday's books. I have been reading less and less historical romances (HR) lately, but I can never turn down any of Linda's books. Her books are set in the Wild West, which is my favorite type of historical romance subgenre. Her books are original, engaging, suspenseful, romantic, emotional and fun. It's the whole package I crave from HR, and Linda keeps on delivering. Saving the Mail Order Bride is my favorite so far. The characters were well rounded, intriguing, and very lovable. This doesn't mean they were perfect, however everything they did, they did for a good reason. Jack is a lawman turned outlaw, who is wanted and knows one day he will be hanged for his crimes. Nora Kane is his mail order bride, who hasn't had an easy life. "Even if he spent the rest of his life in her arms, he'd never get his fill of Nora Kane. She set his world straight and gave it color. No longer was everything in black, white, and dull gray." When they first meet they don't know the identity of each other, which created some very unfortunate and sometimes funny scenes. Nora, definitely stood up for herself, and I loved her strong and caring personality. Jack is also a very good man who never took advantage of Nora. These two were perfect for each other, and I had a blast going on a journey with them. Normally, I am not a big fan of stories that for the majority take place on the road, however, I really enjoyed it this time. It really gave the characters the time to get to know each other, and grow stronger as individuals and eventually as a couple. I was happy that we got to see what the characters from the previous books were doing, and it always feels like being reunited with family. If you are a fan of historical western romances, then I highly recommend you to pick up any of Linda's books. I am already looking forward to her next book.

  • Sassy flirting and Texas sized hearts

    Saving the Mail Order Bride is chock-full of cheeky flirting between two characters with hearts of gold. I always enjoy Ms. Broday’s writing and this book is no exception. The flirting starts with a bang, knees ‘accidentally’ touching across a stagecoach. Jack is handcuffed to a marshal while Nora sits across from him. He subtly moves his leg closer to her. This action angers Nora and entertains Jack. But of course, once Jack looks away, Nora is just as intensely interested in Jack. I just love this scene! It is masterfully written. There is subtle body movements and limited conversation. It sets the flirty tone for the book and Jack and Nora’s whole relationship. Well done, Ms. Broday! The novel is peppered with great quotes between Jack and Nora, showcasing their teasing flirtation. Here are a couple that I really wanted to share with you. “How am I going to keep my hair back now? I’ve lost all my pins but that one.” [Nora] “Maybe you can tie it into one of those pretzel things.” [Jack] “I wear black clothes for every person who’s been wronged, beaten down, deprived of a living, and for the poor and hungry. Why did you discard your bustle?” [Jack} “It was in my way, and I’m tired of wearing what men decide women must.” [Nora] (I might have raised my arm in solidarity over that last quote! 😉 ) Jack is a hardened outlaw with a soft and gooey underside. The above quote is a great example of his heart of gold. For me, he’s an outlaw in name only. He’s certainly more of a good guy than the lawmen chasing him. He is also extremely stubborn, but does finally realize that he’s no less a man if he accepts the help of a strong woman. Jack has my vote for a fantastic book boyfriend. Nora is a woman with the heart of a warrior. She’s a fierce protectress, taking care of herself and others. “I’ll stand by your side and hand you the bullets.” [Nora to Jack in her wedding vows!] She loves quickly and wholeheartedly. I would want Nora in my corner anytime. She’s absolutely the type of woman who would make a loyal friend. I enjoyed the first book in this series (read my review here: The Outlaw’s Mail Order Bride). I did struggle, however, with how quickly Clay and Tally fell in love. In the case of Saving the Mail Order Bride, the romantic pace is just as quick. But in this case, I really think the fast pace works. Jack and Nora are handcuffed together, trying to stay alive in the wilds of Texas, while outrunning a posse. Their closeness grows as a result of the hardships they face and survive together. The love between these two characters reads as authentic and swoony. Saving the Mail Order Bride is full of sassy flirting and Texas-sized hearts. Enthusiastically recommended.
