Love Will Follow by Bailey Bristol
Love Will Follow contains many of my favorite book elements- romance, the Old West, historical fiction. Kittie is a young woman running from an abusive adoption situation. At the age of ten, she was adopted from an orphan train leaving behind an older brother. Her brother- who has long wanted to find Kittie now that they are adults- has been killed and has sent his best friend, Jake to find Kittie and give her his son.
Jake and Kittie are interesting characters. Kittie has that strong, yet vulnerable, heroine appeal I love. Jake is a dashing protector- a knight in shining armor. There is the typical evil villain coming after young Kittie and the battle of good versus evil where love will triumph over all. Throw in some Old West action and a few surprises and it's the perfect recipe for a good read.
I give it a shining 4.5 stars. It's definitely a PG-13 rating for the implication of intimate behavior with no description.
