Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Johanna Lindsey takes you on a captivating adventure in 1880s Montana, where passions and gold fever run high as an American heiress turns to a rugged mountain man to help her locate her father's fortune. 

Summoned back to Philadelphia from the social whirl in London, Violet Mitchell never expected to find her brothers living on the edge of financial ruin while their father seeks new wealth in Montana's gold fields. With the family's home and social standing at risk, Violet makes a drastic decision. 

Morgan Callahan rode away from his family's cattle ranch to make his own fortune. Now, as he finishes exploiting a mother lode of silver, a young woman claiming to be his late partner's daughter turns up wanting to be taken to her father's mine. Suspecting that the pretty schemer works for the mining outfit that is trying to steal his land, he has no qualms about snatching her and holding her at his camp, where she can do no harm. 

Morgan underestimated the new thorn in his side. Determined to claim what rightfully belongs to her family, Violet summons up the courage, grit, and spunk to cope with the hazards and discomforts of an untamed land and the disturbingly masculine stranger who holds her fate in his hands. But an error of judgment brings down a hailstorm of calamity and danger that upends her plans and deepens her bond to a man who is not the brilliant match a lady wishes to make but could be all that a strong, passionate woman desires.

Terrible narrator

I was really looking forward to this book, but the terrible accent and interpretation of the narrator totally ruined it for me. Usually can't put her books down, this I haven't been able to finish even if the story interests me

Enjoyable.

The aristocractic English Accent was a bit jarring and wearing to listen to throughout the whole book.. There are many other softer toned educated English Accents that are far more gentle on the ears. Needs to be less affected. Number three in this series about two families. I would read more about the other members of these two families please.

Sorru Pilar Witherspoon

I've read every book Johanna Lindsey has ever written. She has to be one of my all time favorite Author's! This particular series is not one of my favorites. Seems it took forever in all of this particular series, to get to the point of being interesting for me. Because it was a Johanna Lindsey story I knew it would get good at some point. But it took me days to finish it. Do think if I had been reading it myself I would have enjoyed it much more. As I have never been able to put her books down until I was finished with them. At one point I speeded up the reading time to 2x. Which made it much better listening. Do apologize to Pilar Witherspoon as do not wish to be over critical. However you really need to speed up you reading time as you drug this one out so long it made it boring and hard to get through.

Wrong Narrator

Pilar Witherspoon has a lovely voice for a British historical novel, but her phrasing and word stress is annoying for a Western. Ten minutes into the recording, I knew I would not be able to listen, to let alone enjoy, almost eleven hours.

Read it by sundown too

I actually didn’t realize that this was a continuation of the Callahan-Warren series of which I read the first two books a few years back. By my count, two more Callahan brothers have yet to get ‘hitched’ so I’m holding the author to remedying that ... soon!!!

Good storyline with a buffet of my favorite genre tidbits ... mining; a saddle weary, pampered heroine; difficult and brooding hero turned thoughtful, kind and chock full of love; a big and boisterous family of brothers lead by a strong but warm matriarch ... the plot wasn’t overly unique but neither was it predictable and “formularic”.

There was some steam but by no means was it gratuitous. I am not a fan of the overly sanitized romances but I don’t particularly enjoy bedroom scenes for the sake of filling in the pages either.

Pilar Witherspoon gives her usual stellar performance ... I had no idea she could master British accents and Irish brogues too! She is quickly becoming a must listen narrator for me.

Credit worthy? Surely - give one up for this tale.

not my favorite Johanna Lindsey

I never did bond with the heroine. I thought she was boring and stubborn, not sassy or hardworking. I thought the brothers were wimps. The narrator's voice grated initially, got better over time. Sorry I wasted a credit on this book

A good little story

The story line itself was very good and I listened to the whole book and it did come together in the end. I believe with a different narator I would have given the book a higher rating. It was read to quickly and lacking in emotion!

Stretches the imagination at times, narrator needs a better director

First of all, the narrator did voices well but her syntax and inflection left a lot to be desired at times. Not consistently enough to make it unlistenable, but she had odd pauses in her phrasing at times, as if there were commas or even ellipses inappropriately in the middle of thoughts and sentences. Also, some of the plot is rather unbelievable. But overall not a bad story. I finished it and liked it ok, but not sure I’d buy another book from this author or narrator, especially not at full price.

chikkas

The narrator killed the mood of the story for me. It took me 30 minutes to get the feel of the story. Therefore I didn't enjoy it as I should.
