Boots Under Her Bed by Jodi Thomas, Jo Goodman, Kaki Warner, and Alison Kent
What Goodreads Says:
"From four acclaimed authors come four all-new novellas featuring the rugged men of the West and the women who want them
From Jodi Thomas...Callie has done a lot of crazy things, but it’ll take one more to prove she isn’t nuts: find a husband, fast! Her only requirement: he has to be taller than she is and swear not to have her committed during their ruse of a marriage.
From Jo Goodman...Felicity Ravenwood was raised to be independent-minded, but when this runaway bride opposes her father’s choices, it is up to Nat Church to bring her around. But he doesn’t count on springing her from jail, holding her hostage, or falling head over boot-heels in love.
From Kaki Warner...Two strangers on a train have more in common than they know—both have hidden purposes and ties to a Nebraska bank robbery. But when their schemes unravel, they find a bigger surprise awaiting them than either could have imagined.
From Alison Kent...When runaway New York socialite Maeve Daugherty joins her father’s bodyguard Zeb Crow on his personal mission of revenge, what was a slightly scandalous new life as a bookkeeper for an infamous San Antonio brothel becomes downright dangerous. But that’s not stopping Maeve from having the time of her life."
I am a big fan of Jodi Thomas and Jo Goodman so when I saw they both had a novella in Boots Under Her Bed I immediately purchased the book. I was not disappointed. Usually in a book like this there is one novella that is my hands down favorite and the others are just OK. Not the case here. I loved all four. Each author produced a very strong and well written story.
Jodi Thomas wrote a story about a marriage of convience that turned into a love match. Jo Goodman used Nat Church as her hero. He is the hero of dime novels in some of her books. The story was really cute. This is the first time I had read anything by Kaki Warner and Alison Kent. Both featured unusual scenes and characters in their novellas.
If you are a fan of Western Romances this is a very good choice. Pick it up for four fun stories filled with romance and set in the old west.
Berkley published Boots Under HerBed by Jodi Thomas, Jo Goodman, Kaki Warner, and Allison Kent in 2014.
