My Rating: 4.5 stars
SAVING THE MAIL ORDER BRIDE drew me in from the start and never let go. Jack and Nora are an engaging couple who might have made a good marriage to a stranger work but life just got interesting for them both and their original intentions soon fly away as danger leads them closer to each other – and maybe even trusting their lives to each other as well.
We first met Jack in THE OUTLAW’S MAIL-ORDER BRIDE and his story turned out to be as interesting as I thought it might be. The idea behind this series intrigues me, and I’m certainly enjoying getting to know these “outlaws” and their future brides.
Jack and Nora were realistic in their actions, even as stubborn as only desperate people can be. I liked them both and on their journey on the run we got to know them, their background and hopes as they opened up to each other. The attraction is certainly there between them, now they just have to deal with this mess and maybe there is a happy ending for them eventually. They each have their secrets and their reasons for how they got to this point in life. Nothing like a bit of real danger to hasten the trust factor, right? We’ll also run into some familiar faces and that will always make a series more realistic to me. I had fun with this story, I enjoyed the characters and what they faced on the run only brought them closer in the end.
If you’re in the mood for a really good romance then SAVING THE MAIL ORDER BRIDE should be on your list – high on your list.
