I am having vision issues which are terrifying to someone whose work and interests lie in reading and writing. Because of this, I am falling behind in some of my reviewing commitments and ask for your support and patience.

The Vigilante's Bride...Review
Montana Territory, 1884Is Her Kidnapper the Only Man Who Can Keep Her Safe?
Robbing a stagecoach on Christmas Eve and abducting a woman passenger is the last thing Luke Sullivan expected to do. He just wanted to reclaim the money stolen from his pa, but instead ended up rescuing a feisty copper-haired woman who was on her way to marry Sullivan's dangerous enemy.
Emily McCarthy doesn't take kindly to her so-called rescue. Still, she's hoping Providence will turn her situation for good, especially when it seems Luke Sullivan may just be the man of her dreams. But Luke has crossed a vicious man, a powerful rancher not used to losing, and Emily is the prize he's unwilling to sacrifice.
Liked it, didn't love it. The story bounces between viewpoints but, really, it's more Luke's story than Emily's, which isn't exactly a problem, because I liked Luke. I never did like Emily and her contrived conflicts with Luke never seemed unbelievable. I found myself annoyed with her more than anything.
It was light on everything. Light on the Christian, light on the romance, light on the substance and characterization. A nice diversion, nothing more.
