I received this book from Bethany House Publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not compensated in any other way.
I got two FICTION books to review the same day and I decided to start with The Vigilante's Bride by Yvonne Harris, because it looked less interesting than the other book. I went into it expecting it to be run-of-the-mill Christian romance.
Plot Summary: Orphaned girl, Emily, in a group home reaches marriagable age and is sent west to marry a older, wealthy rancher in exchange for a donation to the orphanage. Turns out the guy, Mr. Axel, is a jerk; unfaithful, abusive and theiving to name a few. Emily is kidnapped in a stage coach robbery by a vigilante, Luke. A man who is part of a group who take justice for cattle rustlers into their own hands (there is no law in some parts of Montana in 1884). After a variety of mishaps, and Luke's return to the Lord, the two realize they complete each other!
I expected the ending and did not fall in love with any of the characters, but was entertained while reading. I would certainly read more books by Harris.
I would give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
