    ***Just Ok***

    Sierra Nevada Mountains – Apr 1868 Cameron Scott has recently returned from the war but can’t seem to give up barking orders as if everyone is a soldier. Cam and his sister Penny have come to the home of Trace and Deb Riley to claim his daughter Maddie Sue and nephew Ronnie. He had only planned to be gone from his new homestead a day or two. But, the weather takes a terrible turn and an interfering woman named Gwen Harkness seems determined to keep him from children. In addition to that, Raddo Landauer, the vile outlaw who led the massacre on the wagon train that killed everyone but Gwen, Deb and the children (book one) seems determined to leave no witness behind. Gwen is trying to figure out her place in a new world but has become bonded to the children she helped save and will do anything to protect them. Cam is not the only one with a claim on the children. Some not-so-nice grandparents also have an interest and hire a Pinkerton Agent to fetch him. This story is fast paced as pioneer life was hard and dangerous. I found some details overly long for inconsequential scenes. It was also a bit odd to have the story switch to the outlaw’s point of view, particularly when he is quite evil. It’s natural for people to become drawn together in snowed in with cramped quarters over a long winter and the romance was sweet as each person fumbled through the practicality of a future together. The book was not my favorite, and I certainly enjoyed the first one more. I would recommend it for someone wanting to know what happens next in the series. Positive Faith Quote: "Think about it, Cam. Whatever happens, God promises to be with us. So, Be not afraid. He goes before us in this life and the next. I'd say that sounds exactly right."

    Take a Trip to the Sierras with Mary Connealy!

    "His voice was too loud, his manner too abrupt. He treated everyone like soldiers under his command." Former Union army officer Cameron Scott has a problem; he barks out orders to everyone around him including his family, his friends, and the children he so desperately wants to re-claim as his own. His own daughter is scared of him; she and his orphaned nephew both run to the way-too-lovely-and -stubborn-as-a-mule Gwen Harkness every time he even enters a room. But when a vicious attack confirms that a cold blooded killer is still on the loose, Cam becomes determined to change his ways. Enjoy this fun, flirtatious, family feuding that takes the benefits of moonlight kisses to a whole new level.

    Really enjoyed it

    This book was an absolute joy to read. While danger was lurking around almost every corner, I totally enjoyed the ride. The Reluctant Warrior kept my interest the entire time. I was hooked and turning pages late Into the night. If you've read The Accidental Guardian you know how great these characters are. I love their endurance, passion to keep going, and their love for each other. Connealy had me chuckling at their interactions and loving every minute of it. There were times I was almost biting my nails not knowing what would happen next. I can't wait to see what happens in book three of this series. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical romance. Connealy is one of the best and she doesn't disappoint. I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers and was in no way forced to post a review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Exciting action-packed read

    Fire! Action! Full Speed Ahead! This second installment of High Sierra Sweethearts by Mary Connealy leaves the reader flipping pages and buries her in action. It’s non-stop action for the first few chapters and is maintained throughout the entire book, with slower moments having intense moments that move the story along. If I would aspire to be a writer of westerns, Mary Connealy would be the example to follow (though I have no aspirations to write westerns…). She has mastered the art of non-stop action and paints deep characters that are cheered and booed equally as strong. Not one of her short stories or full length novels that I’ve read lacks excitement. This story picks up where The Accidental Guardian left off, with retired army commander Cameron Scott claiming his rights to his daughter and orphaned nephew. The Harkness sisters, along with guardian of the trail-turned rancher Trace Riley, have been caring for the children since their own caregivers were killed in a wagon train attack. Rough and overly assertive, Cameron wonders how he’ll ever parent these helpless children when they cry to look at him. Gwen Harkness is the key to his becoming a father to Maddie Sue and Ronnie, and to becoming a better man. Fires, shoot-outs, trail chases through snowy mountain passes, old enemies wreaking havoc in the quiet lives of those working the Sierra Ranch fill pages of entertaining reading. One can only imagine what will happen as we’re left wondering what scheming in-laws and a mysterious Pinkerton agent will do next. I guess we’ll just have to wait until the release of the final installment, The Unexpected Champion. I received an ecopy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.
