Wildfire Creek – Book Two, Redemption Mountain Historical Western Romance Series

“A heartwarming, passionate story of loss, forgiveness, and redemption set in the untamed frontier during the tumultuous years following the Civil War. Ms. Davies’ engaging and complex characters draw you in from the start, creating an exciting introduction to this new historical western romance series.”

Luke Pelletier is settling into his new life as a rancher and occasional Pinkerton Agent, leaving his past as an ex-Confederate major and Texas Ranger far behind. He wants nothing more than to work the ranch, charm the ladies, and live a life of carefree bachelorhood.

     Ginny Sorensen has accepted her responsibility as the sole provider for herself and young sister. The desire to continue their journey to Oregon is crushed when the need for food and shelter keeps them in the growing frontier town of Splendor, Montana, forcing Ginny to accept work as a server in the local saloon.

     Luke has never met a woman as lovely and unspoiled as Ginny. He longs to know her, yet fears his wild ways and unsettled nature aren’t what she deserves. She’s a girl you marry, but that is nowhere in Luke’s plans.

     Complicating their tenuous friendship, a twist in circumstances forces Ginny closer to the man she most wants to avoid—the man who can destroy her dreams, and who’s captured her heart.

 

    Believing his bachelor status firm, Luke moves from danger to adventure, never dreaming each step he takes brings him closer to his true destiny and a life much different from what he imagines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging Western Romance with Memorable Characters “Wildfire Creek” is the second novel in the “Redemption Mountain” historical western series, and it tells the story of Luke, who was introduced in the first book but who took a backseat in the storyline to his brother Dax. Luke isn’t interested in a wife or children—he’s determined to live a life of adventure, whether working on the ranch or trying to track down gold thieves for Pinkerton’s. Despite his resolve, he can’t help but be drawn toward selfless and kind Ginny, a barmaid who tirelessly works to care for her five-year-old sister; he finds himself stepping in to help her when she needs it most, even though it hurts her pride. However, he also has to deal with danger from Indians, mysterious disappearances from the ranch, and a renegade named Flatnose… Western romance is one of my favorite genres, and “Wildfire Creek” is an entertaining and satisfying read—it’s got a handsome, rough-and-tumble cowboy who’s both sensitive and complex, a spunky and likeable heroine, and a plot full of adventure and suspense over whether their romance can work itself out despite the obstacles in its way. I also liked the secondary romance between Noah and Abigail—it was a sweet bonus for me within the larger plot. The author has a talent for bringing this period to life realistically and vividly, and doesn’t shy away from some of the harder aspects of frontier life even though it’s fiction. Recommended to readers who like sweeping historical romances that are grounded with memorable, likeable characters and a strong sense of place and setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Romance! Shirleen Davies returns us to a time just after the Civil War with “Wildfire Creek” Book 2 in the ‘Redemption Mountain Series.’ In Book 1, Dax found his life turned upside down and his soul mate when he met Rachel. Now it’s his younger brother’s turn. Luke, a part inheritor of a ranch with his older brother, Dax, is in the Montana Territory. Unlike Dax though, Luke still finds the wild in his heart, a yearning for adventure that the Pinkerton Detective Agency soothes occasionally. A run in with an arrow lays Luke up a bit before he chomps at the bit and ends up in the bar in town, the place where he first met pretty barmaid Ginny. All the townsfolk believed he had his sights set on the girl- something the bachelor happy young man adamantly refused – yet something his heart decided on anyway. Responsible Ginny is as far from Luke as one can imagine, though they truly are made for each other. Here they learn about each other, their families, their pain, their surprising commonalities and learn about love. Heartwarming and compelling, this is a contemporary romance that made me smile and allowed my heart to grin. Luke is likable and Ginny is absolutely loveable – though I think Mary was my favorite.
