The Pony Express Collection -- a review

The Pony Express Romance Collection: Historic Express Mail Route Delivers Nine Inspiring RomancesThe Pony Express Romance Collection: Historic Express Mail Route Delivers Nine Inspiring Romances

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I was excited to dip into the Pony Express collection of novellas because it brought to mind one my favorite television series of the early ‘90s. Anybody remember The Young Riders? Fun stuff. This collection is chock full of that kind of historical romantic adventure. I particularly enjoyed Pegg Thomas’s Embattled Hearts. It’s gritty, and her voice is very rich and strong – true to the setting and period, which is something I particularly like in historical fiction. It gives realism to the romance. I have a few of the stories still to read, but I look forward to some pleasurable hours ahead.

Cover Reveal! The Softest Breath, Echoes of the Heart, Book Two!

DRUM ROLL, FOLKS!
Here's the cover!
Book Two of the Echoes of the Heart series is about to be revealed:



Gwen’s desperation touches Jacob, but he knows her thoroughly modern type.
Not at all an old-fashioned, wholesome girl like the one he can’t forget.


Back Cover Synopsis

Modern girls seemed always in a hurry. Now one of them has slammed into Jacob Hessman on the street near St. Paul's Union Depot and boarded his train. He knows her type: flapper-chic in her bobbed hair and stylish dress, so different from the sweet, country-bred kind of girl who once filled his heart.

Gwendolyn Smith’s narrow window of time to escape Hugh Phelps is closing fast. Performing in speakeasies and underground clubs has left her mistrustful of most men, but the big fellow she plows into on her flight to the station seems safe enough to attach herself to for short term protection.

Friendship unfolds, but Gwen hides behind lies, wishing she might deserve such a God-fearing man as Jacob, and Jacob’s pursuit of a perfect wife conflicts with his mounting concern for Gwen. Meanwhile, Hugh is catching up. For Jacob and Gwen, trapped in their pasts and misconceptions, the time for truth and love is running out.


THE SOFTEST BREATH is not available for pre-order, but the book drops on May 21st, so get it on your to-be-read list now!
