The Rocky Mountain Heiress Collection by Kathleen Y'Barbo
Not too long ago, I had the opportunity to read The Inconceivable Marriage of Charlotte Beck by Kathleen Y'Barbo, an author I hadn't read before. I loved it. So when I had the opportunity to get for review the other two in her Rocky Mountain Heiress Collection, I was very pleased.
I was not disappointed by my further reading. The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper is the story of Gennie Cooper, a New York debutante who desires a Wild West adventure before thinking of settling down to marriage. She poses as a governess and travels to Denver to meet Mr. Beck and his unmanageable daughter. The adventure she finds is more than she sought, and she finds romance along the way also. In Anna Finch and the Hired Gun Anna- who is much better at writing than at speaking to any eligible young man- gets a chance to be a reporter and interview the infamous Wyatt Earp. When a Pinkerton detective assigned to watch out for her gets in her way, romance might happen. The Inconceivable Marriage of Charlotte Beck is the story of the now much older Charlotte- the unmanageable child from book 1- and Alex Hambly who agrees to marry Charlotte to please her father but who hopes the marriage will turn into a real marriage and not just a ruse to please Charlotte's father.
I love Y'Barbo's strong and feisty heroines and her dashing and charming heroes. Each story is a sweet romance, but there is also an interesting story line. The action isn't predictable, but the events are realistic. As a fan of historical fiction, I love the Old West setting. And as a romance fan, the love stories don't disappoint.
I can definitely recommend Kathleen Y'Barbo's Old West romances. I give this set 5 stars and a PG for content.
