Tormented by the knowledge that his father died thinking the worst of him, Colt Hall never meant to come home to Chance Creek. But with his brothers banding together to rebuild the family’s old ranch, he’s finding it hard to stay away. In accordance with the conditions for them to inherit the spread, Colt must soon marry. Too bad the only woman he wants is Heather Ward, the girl he walked away from years ago without saying good-bye. 

Heather hid a secret for twelve long years, but when the Halls moved back to town it was only a matter of time before the truth came out. Now everyone but Colt knows he has a son. She’ll get one chance to convince Colt to forgive her—and become the father Richard has always longed for. If she answers Colt’s online ad for a temporary wife, will he fall in love with her before he learns the truth? 

Colt knows it’s crazy to try to find a wife through an internet ad, and it’s even crazier to fall for a stranger who wants far more than a temporary marriage, but Helena Warner reminds him so much of Heather, he begins to wonder if the two might be the same woman. Heather can’t believe she’s using a fake name to seduce the father of her own child, but is it possible Colt might know more about her true identity than he’s letting on? 

Once all the lies and secrets are stripped bare, Colt and Heather must answer the ultimate question: can a love interrupted ever be renewed?

Vikki’s Musings

I looked forward to reading The Airman’s E-Mail Bride for some time. I thoroughly enjoyed the other three books in the Heroes of Chance Creek series tremendously. This book is a fantastic ending to this entertaining series.

There is no doubt Cora Seton is a wonderful storyteller. This tale of second chance romance is an excellent example of her abilities. Her pacing is fast without feeling rushed. Her characters are believable and so is the plot. Her dialogue zings, pulling me into the story from the first page.

I fell in love with Colt. He is an awesome hero. His remorse and guilt over his last conversation with his late father jumps off the page and sent an arrow to my heart. It is impossible to not love a man, who has served his country with honor and bravery. I love the tenderness he shows with Heather, and not only during the love scenes. Even though he received a shock that would send many men running, he is able to see Heather’s reasons for never contacting him when she realized she was going to have his child. He handles missing the first thirteen years of his son’s life extremely well.

Heather is a great heroine. She is a strong, independent character with plenty of backbone; on top of that, she is raising her son to be a great kid, and even owns a prosperous home décor business. I loved her sexual banner when she answers Colt’s e-mail. Most women would not have handled the situation with the fake fiancée nearly as well.

One of the things I liked best about The Airman’s E-Mail Bride is the chance to find out what is happening to the other characters in this series and her cowboy series set in Chance Creek. After reading so many books with the Chance Creek characters, they almost feel like family. Her ability to show realistic family dynamics is another reason I love her books.

While this book is light-hearted, it packs a lot of emotion and touches on real life situations that many people experience.  I highly recommend this great book and all the other books in this series. I feel confident that you will enjoy them as much as I have. Ms. Seton also has another series coming soon with SEALs and cowboys. I don’t know about you, but pairing hot military men with even hotter cowboys is a winning combination for me. Happy reading!
