    1. Christine says:

      This was a decent read. It's one of those I basically enjoyed, although I can nit-pick it to death.Premise: Heroine is half Indian (not sure why, since it made little difference to the plot, but she was) who married a Wyoming rancher at the age of 14 and now, at the age of 25, is widowed with 3 children. As a woman, she can't manage a ranch on her own, and rather than take an offer of marriage from a loathsome neighbor, she proposes to a drifter she knows nothing at all about. (I wonder if that [...]

    2. Jacqueline says:

      I enjoyed this book. I don't know why the author made the heroine half indian since it really didn't play into the story much at all. It was sort of used for a deus ex machina effect a couple of times. The writing was well done and the story emotional so I overlooked some non period feeling elements in spots that might have bothered me more if the writing wasn't so good. The tortured type hero was pretty good although most drifters in westerns are not rich but I overlooked it. I liked the saloon [...]

    3. Christel says:

      I really enjoyed this one. Set in the 1880's this would be considered an historical romance. Coulter really had some problems to work through and so did Kinyan but everything turned out for the best. I know this is a vague review but to me if I tell alot I will give away everything

    4. Amy says:

      I enjoyed this novel and went back deliberately to read it after I had read another book by this author. I found it very engaging and interesting and even informative on the subject of ranching during that time. I like the way the author portrayed the two twins to be so different from one another and reacting to things in the plot as individuals. And I really liked Elizabeth a lot she was so cute. And I especially like that there was a lot of good storyline without an excessive amount of sexual [...]

    5. Dee Schwinn says:

      This was a curious blend of western and romance. The struggles the two main characters were well developed and engaged the reader

    6. Tracy Hall says:

      FavoriteI have read this book several times. It is always worth my time. Love the old cowboys from the 1800's.

    7. Beryl Audrey Foreman says:

      Another Favorite!I liked this book because of it's strong story line, solid characters, and intelligent dialogue. It kept my interest. Thanks Joan Johnston!

    8. Karen says:

      A story of courage, determination and perils of living in the west.A widow of mixed heritage needs a man to teach her about ranching to protect her son's inheritance. Lessons included guns, self defence & learning to read.A gunslinger on an 8 year hunt for the last of his family's brutal killers finally decides to settle. However, the price tag for the land a wilful wife, wild twin boys, a little girl who's painful to look at and a ruthless neighbor who covets his claim.The characters are we [...]

    9. Susan says:

      This short prequel to Colter's Legacy would not encourage me to look for other titles by this author. I couldn't decide if it was a fantasy, a sci-fi, a romance, or porn. Hints of past tragedy in the heroine's life were poorly defined. While the author hinted at several twists in what could have been a well developed plot, nothing concrete ever materialized, except that 3 brothers had sex with their pregnant "wife". During a walk, the heroine had a fall, and was rescued hours later, in time to h [...]

      I am a sucker for a historical western romance so I decided to pick up this book. This is the first Joan Johnston book I have read and it wasn't too bad. There seemed to be non stop drama just for the sake of more drama though. I don't think I have read any other book were so many bad things kept happening to so many people. I just wish there would have been a couple more happy scenes to counter balance all the bad stuff that they had to go through. Overall it was a pretty good read.

    11. Nancynova says:

      a one weekend read! Good historical western set in Wyoming in the late 1800's. Kinyan's husband is killed in a range accident & the only way she can hold on to the ranch is to remarry. She chooses to marry the cowboy drifter who wants to buy her land, instead of the prominent rancher in town. Quite a few twists and turns. The drifter is not really that, the prominent rancher is really the outlaw, and Kinyan's family needs to learn to accomodate a new Pa in Colter.

    12. Tonya Warner says:

      Benjamin Colter tried to leave behind the tragedy of his past. One that covered his body and soul with a mirad of scars. Mistaking Kinyan's sons and father as rampaging Indians, he comes to risk his heart again.Kinyan has already lost one husband, and was estranged from her father. Could she risk again to save the family ranch for her sons and daughter?A really great story. Enjoyed every minute of it.

    13. Anna Schno says:

      It is a Western Study with the usual: cattle drives, Indians, marriage of convenience But it also tries to cover the plight of the natives. this means there is too much to cover deeply and it doesn't do justice to some of these topics. If you read it as a romance set in the wild West and don't expect too much depth, then you're good!

    14. Natalie says:

      This was the perfect beach read. Not very heavy and a typical type of romantic book which should not have much expected from it. It was not trashy romance but had it's mix of tragedy, sex, happiness, conflict and overcoming that conflict and of course everything ended happily ever after.

    15. Maggie Shanley says:

      Okay Western story with a major coincidence. A story of arranged marriage and then a marriage of convenience.

    16. Vanessa Roberts says:

      A good case for punctuation making a difference. That apostrophe placement is NOT A TYPO.Interesting read.

    17. Annie Mckinley says:

      good

    18. Cindy says:

      Very good although I did have a hard time getting into it at first.

    19. Angelica Taggart says:

      I love a good Western romance, and this one fit the bill perfectly. Romance & intrigue & and a particularly rotten bad guy out on the wild plains. Joan Johnston does a good job!

    20. Grace says:

      2nd readRead it before I started keeping track on 10/25/2008

    21. Barbara says:

      Great!

    22. S Miller says:

      Used - Good (Some spine creases; Signs of shelf wear)

    23. Aristotle says:

      The book was a warm and loving read, although for me, there were some loose ends which could have been sorted out. Anyways, 4 stars to my love for the 'West':D
