Roen Shepard s family encouraged artistic talent, but his yearning is numbers That talent earned him an engineer surveyor position with Northeast Rail His calculations and negotiations pave the way for the railroad s expansion That s what brings him to Frost Falls.
Widow Lily Salt and her four children do what they can to make ends meet Lily sews, and her oldest son Clay is an odd jobber Together, they mind the three younger children These children really add to the story with their quirky antics and conversations.
From the very beginning, I was enchanted by Lily and Roen I don t remember ever reading a romance about a widow with four children as the heroine This was a pleasant surprise, especially that a man woul I remembering thinking the preceding book in this series was charming This one is just as much so with just a tich heart.
Lily Salt is a widower with four children We met her in the previous book A Touch of Flame where her story as a major subplot In this one she is living in the aftermath of her husband s death and trying to put behind her her dismal marriage.
Roen Shepherd is a surveyor with the Railroad company who has come to town to work out the logistics of where is the best place to run the rail line through this town He is from back east and has a big, bohemian, artsy family some of whom are famous enough to even be known this far out west.
The two enter into a marriage of convenience after the rich,spoiled ex mistress of Roen s lets him know she is on her way to get her man At fi
This is my first book by Jo Goodman and while I don t read cowboy romances often, the blurb and cover of this one intrigued me While this third book in the Cowboys of Colorado series doesn t focus on a cowboy, per se, it is set in early 1900 s Colorado and I didn t have any problems with following along.
Roen is an engineer mathematician working to expand the railway, which takes him to Frost Falls There he meets a precocious boy whose mother is a widow with 4 kids by the way, I can t even imagine being a single mother in those days Lily and her children have had a traumatic life, so everyone in town is concerned about the stranger who is spending time with them.
There is a lot going on in this lengthy story and the firs I always enjoy Jo Goodmans western historicals This story is similar to the last one in many ways but I really enjoyed seeing Lily and her children find happiness In the last book things were pretty grim for them.
25 stars Really loved seeing Lily finally get her HEA with a decent man And Hitch is coming into his own too Looking forward to the next one already.
The story did take me by surprise as I did not realize it was a very long book On one hand I was frustrated because the beginning included a lot of detail and a very slow build up.
But as we reach the middle of the book, the story starts winding up and we find ourselves in the middle of a marriage of convenience, a mystery pregnancy, and even a murder, the story got a lot interesting.
Goodman is well known for her American tales of the west and her historical romance novels This particular story is book three in a series and while I ve never read any of the others, it was very easy to follow.
Complex characters along with complex and interesting plot scenarios make this a story that is highly entertaining and very me A Marriage Of Convenience Turns Into A Sweetly Seductive Love Off The Rails Romance In The Latest Cowboys Of Colorado Novel From USA Today Bestselling Author Jo GoodmanLily Salt Has Sworn Off Men After Finally Gaining Her Independence, The Last Thing She Needs Is Another Man Telling Her What To Do But The Handsome Railroad Engineer From New York Isn T At All What She Expected He S Kind, Gentleand Tempting Enough To Make Her Wonder What A Second Chance At Love Might Be WorthA Self Acknowledged Black Sheep, Roen Shepard Knows What It Means To Feel Alone Recognizing A Kindred Spirit In The Reserved Widow Whose Fascinating Blue Green Eyes Have Seen Too Much, And Charmed By The Warmth Of Her Ready Made Family, The Two Begin An Unlikely FriendshipWhen A Complication From His Past Follows Him To Frost Falls, Roen Proposes A Mad Scheme To Protect The New Life He S Built And Keep Close The Stubborn Woman He S Accidentally Fallen For A Marriage Of Convenience But Lily Has Secrets Of Her Own, And The Closer He Gets To Uncovering Them, The He Comes To Realize That The Only Truth That Matters Is The Secret To Unlocking Her Heart
