Badlands Bride by Adrianne Wood

As soon as he saw that flash of red, he should have high-tailed it out of that mining camp...

I won a copy of this book from a contest the author sponsored and I enjoyed it enough I'm going to do a review.  You can get a copy either in paperback or ebook form, whichever is your preference.

Mason is a burnt-out journalist who is trying to get the spark going again.  He has returned to this mining camp, where he has already done one article, in hopes of finding another article or just plain revitalizing his life.  He never had any intention of meeting Lily.

Lily is from a Boston family and has been living in Colorado for eight years.  She's at the camp with her grandfather and a potential beau.  It's time for her to consider getting wed but she's not overly taken with Cecil.  He would be a good match (her grandfather likes him), but does he really care for her?  Maybe she can get Mason to flirt with her and make him jealous.

Her wealthy grandfather has some secrets; so does Cecil.  Her flirtation with Mason becomes real.  Nothing in camp is what it seems and even Lily's life is not what she was told.  Her whole world turns upside down.

This is a good western story as well as a well-told romantic tale.  I enjoyed the read.  Why not get a copy and pull up a chair and visit a mining camp with Mason and Lily?

Happy reading.
