Elizabeth James escapes an odious fiancé by heading west on the first Bride Train of 1870. She finds herself at the end of the line in the Tanner's Ford jail, forced to marry the town bully unless someone else defies Big Joe to marry her.
Sheriff Chambers banned the Elliotts from town until one got a wife and settled them all down. Finding a defiant Trace Elliott in town, the sheriff offers a tall, ornery barefoot woman to solve all their problems.
Beth is shocked how the stranger's touch inflames her and mortified the next morning when hotel patrons comment on her amorous wedding night cries. She discovers the Elliott men share everything and intend to seduce her into agreeing. Trace, Simon and Jack heat her blood, but do they care for her, or only what she provides? Then Big Joe offers gold to bring her to him…

Soul satisfying and heat igniting! Yahoo!
I'm not much for historical romance, but y'all, this one really revved my engine. At over two hundred pages, it was long enough to really tell a good story while including all the down and dirty cowboy kink I was originally hunting for. Elizabeth James, an independent, intelligent, strong heroine born before her time called to my inner Elizabeth Bennet. While her three cowboys made the journey fun, erotic and quite honestly, touching, it was Elizabeth James's evolution that I enjoyed the most.
Having now read two of Reece Butler's novels, I can attest that this author definitely knows how to write the down and dirty. She is creative, wicked, fun and most definitely not afraid to go ‘there'. She delivers the fiery deets while capturing emotion and making the adventure come to life. Frankly I am a big fan of air-conditioning and easily accessible hot showers. The Wild West doesn't do it for this inner diva. But it is a journey I am willing to make time and again to hang out in Ms. Butler's world. It's quite amazing what three hot and lusty cowboys can talk one into, even giving up the little things, like say, indoor plumbing.
Elizabeth James's father has decided to arrange her marriage to a beast. A wealthy, snobby, old beast. And she is going to have none of it. Instead she packs up her things and heads out west on The Bride Train. Unfortunately, she makes it to the final stop without finding a single man she is willing to accept as a husband.
The Wild West isn't a place for a single woman to be safe. When she arrives at the final stop and still won't pick a mate, the mayor decides he is going to draw a name out of a hat and choose for her. It just so happens that once the town bully enters his name, no one else is willing to pony up and add theirs, too.
That's when Trace Elliott arrives. Trace and his brothers like to work off their inner aggression by picking fights with the miners in the town. The sheriff has banned all three of them until they find a bride to whip them into shape. With Trace being the lesser of two unpleasant choices, Elizabeth agrees to marry him. And that's honestly where the real fun begins, on something like page two!
It is the Wild West so you can count on all kinds of action and adventure. It's ménage with cowboys, so trust that the spicy rating is deliciously high. And it's written by Reece Butler, so you get interesting characters who evolve and entrance.
This is one location I hope Ms. Butler revisits again in her writing. The secondary characters were as delightful as the primary and there are quite a few who deserve a story of their own, too.
I'm going to give this one a big recommendation to those looking for something erotic that is long enough to really tell a tale, but not too much of time commitment, and also to those of you who like your ménage to have no GLBT action and the female the center of attention, and all of my fellow kinky cowboy lovers. Enjoy!
