From Goodreads: Amber Wynters is on a mission to find a millionaire to marry – and fast. Her parents are nearly bankrupt and forced to sell the family home, a beautiful Tudor house that had been in the family for generations. And it’s all thanks to Amber’s ex-fiancé Rod persuading them to invest in his dodgy shares. So armed with a ‘How to Hook a Millionaire’ Book and a ten point plan, she sets off to hook herself a rich husband. Then she meets the drop-down gorgeous Jed Curtess. The at-traction between them is sizzling but Jed is only a hired hand on one of the millionaire’s yachts. Can Amber ignore her heart and follow her plan?

This was a very quick and sweet read. I read it one sitting. I kinda liked Amber as a heroine. There were some decisions she made over the course of the book that I thought weren’t very wise, but I could understand her reasoning behind them, so that endeared me to her. Normally when a heroine makes decisions that seem obviously wrong, I get annoyed, but that wasn’t the case here. I liked the whole premise of the story. A woman determined to marry a millionaire and not for the reasons people would normally do that. Jed is, of course, an adorable hero and he’s someone that I could easily see myself falling for. I also thought he didn’t always make fantastic decisions, but in the end it worked out for everyone. If you’re looking for something to download to bring to the beach, something that’s light and easy to read that you can finish in a short amount of time, then this book is perfect. It’s very cute and will warm your heart with a sweet romance. 🙂

From Goodreads: A “Sweet” romance set in 1894 Montana

When widowed Samantha Sawyers Rodriguez inherits her Uncle Ezra’s Montana ranch, she believes she finally has a chance to put down roots, fulfilling her dream of running an orphanage for wayward children and raising miniature horses. Prosperous rancher, Wyatt Thompson, has coveted Ezra’s river property to expand his spread and fulfill his goal to overcome his poverty-stricken turbulent past. Samantha’s arrival throws his careful plans into chaos, and her newly-adopted orphan boys awaken memories he’s struggled to forget. When an arsonist sets fires in town, and the people turn against Samantha and her boys, Wyatt risks exposing his shameful secret in order to save the woman he loves.

 

I was really excited to read this novel. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series and couldn’t wait to get this one. (You can see my review of that on this website as well.) This novel seemed to have a different kind of feel to it, even though it has the same setting. I wasn’t sure how I felt about Wyatt and first, but he grew on me and won me over in the end. I think that this is the same way our heroine, Samantha, feels about him. Samantha is a heroine that I just adored. She has such a huge heart and is so caring and compassionate it was hard not to love her. I think she’s the kind of person we all would ideally like to be, and it was nice to read a story where someone like her gets what they want and deserve out of life. The children in this story really steal the spotlight though. They add an element to the romance that is really unique.  They each have such unique personalities and are really interesting to read about. This isn’t a romance between two people who are new to love, both Wyatt and Samantha have loved and lost before and are trying to raise their children the best way they know how. I think this is something that at least I personally haven’t seen enough of and it was really fun to read. The Montana Sky series is definitely one that I would recommend to historical romance lovers or for anyone looking for a romance that is just a simple sweet romance. 🙂
