Brooke has been sent west as a mail-order bride (which is better than living with her Uncle Jackson or Hank - both abusive). The problem is the man who bought her, Jason Jordan isn't much better. So his brother, Sky Jordan decides to save her from his cousin and rescue her from Jason by marrying her himself. Can he help her see that all men are not like those she has known and can she learn to trust and allow herself to care and love again? There is also the horrible murder that takes place in the town and the solving of the crime. It was interesting to read that the facts of the murder and the drama surrounding it were taken from a real life case in the history of the old west.This was a very good read. Sky Jordan is a dream come true type of guy. The action, suspense and drama of the book kept me reading and not wanting to stop. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series!
