I've been a fan of Hildie McQueen for several years. I enjoy her writing style and her versatility. Whether she is writing a western historical, a highlander one, or a contemporary romance, she spins engaging stories. Judith: Bride of Wyoming is an excellent new western historical, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Judith Hamilton arrives in Casper, Wyoming, only to learn the man she is supposed to marry has died. Fortunately, she finds a position as a nanny to Sean Montgomery's infant daughter.
Is this her chance to find love, or will she end up giving her heart to Sean and his adorable daughter only to have it broken when the child's mother arrives insisting he marry her or give her Bethany?
I fell in love with Judith's character from the first page. She's the perfect heroine for a western romance. She's mild of manner and a true nurturer yet has a fierce, independent soul, determined to survive. Let's face it, the west held perils for a single, young woman, and her options were few.
Sean is a sweetheart of a hero. He's kind and considerate and loves his illegitimate daughter in a time where most men would have turned the child away. He's also a true gentleman.
As the story unfolds, the love grows slowly between the hero and heroine, yet it does not slow the pacing down. Judith: Bride of Wyoming has a wonderful love story, a good deal of action and great characters. I highly recommend it, especially if you enjoy western romance. Happy reading!
