Westward Winds by Linda Bridey

My review today is on the Westward Winds; Montana Mail Order Brides, Book 1. I have never read any of Linda's books but I enjoyed this one. I love mail order bride stories and I love cowboys so this one is a no-brainer for me. This is not a Christian story but it is a clean romance; there is some sex but it's after they marry and is not descriptive and is in good taste, there is some language but not vulgar, and it's a heart warming story.

Theresa O'Connor was born into high society. She's tired of being told who to see, what to wear, how to act, and all the useless balls and parties. She has told her family over and over but no one listens to her. Desperate she answers an ad from the Brook Agency seeking eligible women for mail order brides. She is drawn to one letter and answers it. Loving the way the man writes and speaks of Montana she writes and suggests she come out so they can meet. She is half in love with him before they ever meet.

Dean Samuels is a widower with two children, his wife died in childbirth and he has decided remarriage isn't an option for him. His brother Marcus keeps telling him he needs a wife and won' t leave him alone so he tells him to go ahead and send an ad in jest. He is shocked when Theresa's first letter arrives but he's intrigued. Uneducated he has his brother answer the letter telling him what to say because he can't trust his own ability. He's torn when Tessa shows up; somehow this feels like betrayal to his wife, but knows his children need a mother. After they are married he can't understand why she is upset when she learns he didn't write the letters. He refuses to listen to her or talk of his feelings.

Two very different people from very different backgrounds, their journey is filled with pot holes, twists and turns. The story is well written, I loved the characters, and it will touch your heart.
