Read full description of the books:
Pete was only looking for the men who robbed him on the trail. What he found was Anne, a woman who didn't know her worth. But he would show her how valuable she was.
Set in Wyoming Territory, 1886, I was set for a romp of a historical romance. The plot sounded fantastic and I loved the idea that Pete Jernigan wakes naked (after being robbed) and finds a way to get out of the difficult situation by using his head. I even like the plot twist that he is forced to take on another man's identity. It is entirely original, the way Leigh Greenwood presents the story.
In typical Leigh Greenwood fashion, the hero is larger than life but, oddly enough, the heroine, this time around seems rather meek and helpless. Enter Pete, incognito, to save her, and the day.
The entire story is actually very sweet as Pete tries to help Anne realize how strong she is, how much value she has and how she doesn't need to cower under a man's influence, in spite of the many people trying to convince her otherwise. And, in time, she starts to stand on her own two feet.
But, and this is why the book is a 3 1/2 star rating, it's a bit of an odd relationship. Pete seems almost like an older brother who then turns into a lover. It's a little creepy with the age difference between the two of them. While there is some great writing, technically, some of the storytelling gets lost in the melodrama. As a fan of romance for years (I don't want to date myself here!), it is fairly obvious from the soap-operaish drama, that this book was originally written in the 90's.
Was it a fun book? Yes, I enjoyed it. Would I read it again and again? Probably not but it was fun for the weekend.
