Montana Rose by Mary Connealy

I read Connealy's Lassoed in Texas series last year  (Lassoed in TX Review ) and immediately she went high on the favorite authors to read list.  I love cute romances.. spunky women... men who are men... and if you set it in the past and in the west, oh my... you have me!  Many of Connealy's works fit this bill, Montana Rose being one of them.

This is book 1 in the Montana Marriages series. Cassie Griffin is a woman of means and breeding and lives a spoiled pampered life... or so her neighbors think.  But then her husband dies, leaving her penniless, pregnant and presumably helpless.  It is impossible for a lady to live single in Divide, Montana and so Cassie finds herself the center of great attention after her husband's funeral.. single men fighting over who will get her!

Red Dawson wants no part of it. Oh he is attracked to Cassie, but a dainty frail woman is not what he needs to work his place and most importantly she is not a believer. He will not be unequally yoked. Watching al the men clamor.. seeing the fear in Cassie's eyes.. imagining her married to one of those licivious heathen, no he cannot stand the thought and so going against everything he feels, Red impusively offers to marry Cassie.

In a matter of hours Cassie looses one husband and gains another.. trades one lifestyle for another... will she survive?  Will Red?
