Abandoned by Carolyn Davidson
Elizabeth is traveling on a wagon
train when it is suddenly attacked by Indians. The people that she
is traveling with have run or been killed. Elizabeth is knocked out
during the confusion and is left for dead. She wakes and is alone
until Cameron Montgomery and his brother Joe arrive at the scene and
Cameron takes Elizabeth to his
wagon to care for her. Pretty soon Cameron is making his intentions
for Elizabeth known but how can they have a future together when she
doesn't even remember her last name or if there is a husband waiting
Cameron's quick claim on Elizabeth seems natural and romantic while
Elizabeth's initial reluctance is understandable. Abandoned
is a charming story where with faith, Cameron's and Elizabeth's
strife is changed to love.
Almost A Bride by Cheryl St. John
Charmaine Renlow is the only
unmarried woman her age in town and her beau, Wayne Brookover,
doesn't seem very inclined to ask for her hand.
Jack Easton is working with
Charmaine on building a float for the town's Founder's Day
celebration. Jack feels he is an outsider to Charmaine's high
society ways. He doesn't fit in, nor does he want to.
Charmaine and Jack find themselves
drawn to each other though and Jack ends up teaching Charmaine a
lesson that changes her life for the better.
Charmaine and Jack are wonderful
together. I was so happy with the way things worked out for them.
Charmaine is a good woman, and Jack is a good man and father.
Almost A Bride is a fine story with several likeable
characters in it.
