I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed a good historical romance until I read Loretta C. Rogers’s Bannon’s Brides. In this romance, the Old West holds danger, excitement, and something undiscovered around the next bend.

With her father and brother buried and no longer around to protect her, Fiona Quinn needs to get out of Shanty Town before she ends up as one of Blackie Sledge’s girls at the brothel in town. At the last second, she decides to attend a meeting where women are chosen as mail-order brides for the men of Glory in the Oregon Territory. Bound by contract as one of ten alternate brides, she joins the wagon train headed for what she hopes will be a better life. Unless one of the chosen brides dies and Fiona is chosen to take her place, she’ll find herself without a husband when she reaches her destination. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing, if she’ll be free to marry Cordell Bannon.

Cordell Bannon is a hard but fair wagon master whose job is to get the brides to Oregon alive and with their virtue intact. Fighting a past heartache, he’s never been tempted by any of the brides until Fiona Quinn. As they face wild Indians, rattle snakes, treacherous river crossings, and white buffalo hunters, he can’t help but admire her courage and strength. He wants her in the worst way, but they’re both bound by unbreakable contracts.

The Old West springs to life in Bannon’s Brides, thanks to the skillful imagination and historical accuracy of author Loretta C. Rogers. Pulse-pounding danger—with a heaping helping of sexual tension—will leave you breathless from one page to another. You’ll also get to know each bride to the point where you’ll be praying that a better life will greet them at the end of their journey.

Both Cordell and Fiona are courageous and admirable characters. You’ll root for them both and hope that they’ll be together when it’s all over. Cordell is strong and honorable, making him a near perfect hero. Fiona’s desire to make her life better brings out her fighting nature in a good way, and you’ll know that whatever comes her way, she’ll be able to handle it.

The best thing about Bannon’s Brides, though, is the way that it highlights the strength and courage of the women of the Old West—no simpering females who faint at the drop of a hat here! Read it—you’ll love it!
