About the Book
Kylie Wilde fought in the Civil War dressed as a boy---and now she's homesteading as a man! When somebody tries to burn her property, land agent Aaron Masterson inspects her claim---and realizes she's a woman. Will he keep her secret? And when the attacks continue, will she marry him just so she won't have to be alone anymore? (Goodreads)
I have read many of Mary Connealy's books and she has a distinct way of writing in my opinion. This book is very similar to her other books with it's characters and humor.
This book is a romance with a western flair and touch of humor. I love the front and back cover of this book, the colors are so pretty! I also like the idea about Kylie having fought in the Civil War as a soldier because it really did happen. I think this part of the story line could have been written better and I was a bit disappointed. I don't think Kylie's reaction to things or how she handles life is very realistic from someone who went to war. Her story is somewhat believable but the story line with the rest of the book was rather disappointing. Kylie's character drove me nuts, but I really liked Aaron. The romance was rushed (even considering the circumstances) but the side story of the sisters I really enjoyed. I think I will like the following books more so because I like the sister's characters more than Kylie.
This is not a bad book but I think it could have been better.
If you are looking for a light western romance you will enjoy this book!
