Escaping West by Morgan K. Wyatt

Kitty Hamilton's future looks bleak.  She's nineteen, her Aunt has run any potential suitor off, and she gets treated like a servant.  That might not be so bad, but her Aunt is sour, strict, mean, and now has taken to whipping her.  There's only so much one person can stand...

The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tours gave me an ebook of this story to read for review (thank you).  You can buy a copy wherever ebooks are sold.

Kitty only has one really good friend in town; that's Harriet, a German immigrant.  Harriet has answered an ad for a wife and has been accepted.  She's travelling cross-country to meet him and tells Kitty to come along.  There are more men there to choose from and she and her new husband will help Kitty find one.  She thinks it's too risky and doesn't want to go.  But her circumstances change.

The next time her Aunt hits her, she grabs the whip and her Aunt loses her balance.  She hits her head and when she comes to, she wants Kitty to go get the sheriff, she's going to turn her in!  Kitty escapes by cutting her hair off and dressing like a boy.  Suddenly she's Harriet's brother Kit.

Kit has no interest in men or women.  Kit just wants someplace safe to live and a job.  She certainly never expected to fall in love...

This is a well paced tale with a good story line.  Not all men are nice, some saloon girls aren't either, and Kit has her hands full trying to pretend she's male.  I enjoyed the western touch and the growing romance between the gambler and Kit.  If you like stories with gentle romances, this one is for you.  It's almost like a cozy western.

Morgan will be awarding the winner's choice of ivory, peach, or white, cultured freshwater pearl necklace to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.

Hi Andra Lyn,

It does have a twist of fairy tale to it, now that you mention it.

Trying to pass yourself off as a man has got to have it's fair share of troubles.
