Badlands Bride by Adrianne Wood
Old West Romance
Badlands Bride is set in Colorado in the late 1800's. Lily HIghfill and Mason Donnelly are the two main characters. Lily is the daughter of a very prominent family from Boston. She has lived for years with her Aunt in Denver and is looking forward to finally going home to Boston. Mason is a journalist who lives and writes in the West. He is suffering from writers block. The two meet when Mason and Lily are both at her grandfather's fossil dig in the Colorado badlands. Both are very appealing characters.
This story has a great journey to the HEA. There is danger, excitement, romance, and a great many twists and turns before we get to the HEA. Both Lily and Mason have make changes in their lives and their perceptions in order to have a happy ending. One thing thtat kept the story interesting was that it is hard to tell who is the good guy and who is the bad guy until the very end of the story. One final twist in the story really blindsided me. Look for a good story with a great setting in Badlands Bride.
Pocket Book published Badlands Bride by Adrianne Wood in 2012.
I received an ARC of Badlands Bride from Edelweiss.
