The Vigilante's Bride
by: Yvonne Harris
Emily McCarty has found herself in quite a predicament. Aldersgate Home For Girls in Chicago where she grew up has decided they needed her room to house 6 new girls. Miss Beecham, the director, made the decision that she would be transported out west in reply to a Chicago Daily Tribune ad for a bride. Much to her discontentment the arrangements were already made, the school already received the money; everything was taken care of. Unfortunately, the only thing Emily knew was his name and that he lived in Montana.
When Luke Sullivan decided to rob the stagecoach little did he know a pretty redhead would be on board. His plans were to even up a score with a man, reclaiming the money that was stolen from his pa years ago. But there was no way he could leave Miss McCarty to wed his enemy. He considered it rescuing her, taking her on horseback to New Hope Foundling and Orphan Asylum for shelter.
What does Miss McCarty consider it? Does she turn Luke in to the sheriff for kidnapping? Will she stay on at New Hope or will she marry Bartholomew Axel, a man old enough to be her grandpa? Now that Luke Sullivan has found his way back home will he lose the chip on his shoulder and find his way back to God? All these answers can be found in The Vigilante’s Bride.
MY THOUGHTS: This is one of the first books I have read that I would consider a western. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a very easy read; I had a hard time putting it down. I wanted to see what was going to happen next. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good romance with a few twists.
