The very determined Lizzie Prescott is going to protect her sisters from their murdering uncle no matter what she has to do. She answers a "Brides Wanted" ad and takes them on a journey to the Washington Territories.

The territories are full of huge cedars, and big hardy lumberjacks. Logan Gallagher brought the brides for his lumberjacks not for himself. But he just can't stop thinking about the red headed beauty. His brother Gage is also drawn to the obstinate woman. Can the three come together and make this work in this place and hard time?

I loved this story as its time period has forever made a place in northwest history. As a north westerner myself, the beauty of this place is spectacular in itself. The characters created for this story are strong and hardy for this time period for it wasn't a place for weak humans to struggle and survive in.

Lizzie Prescott is not a quitter, which I loved, and her spirit was not to be broken. It was sad she believed she couldn't be a bride for any man as she felt it was her duty to see that her sisters were protected at all cost from her disgusting excuse of an uncle. Her main worry is in seeing that her sisters are married and taken care of. She soon comes to discover that she will be forced to make a decision to protect not just her sisters. I love how the author does not take the strength away from Lizzie as she slowly comes to understand that she will be in a relationship with not one brother, but both in every sense of the word.

The story reads at a quick pace and I had a hard time putting it down. The brothers Logan and Gage want to love Lizzie, and she fears that she is a failure as a woman. The brothers are quick to teach Lizzie that she is quite mistaken. Ms. Hunt does not take away the sensual encounters, but makes them definitely lessons that Lizzie comes to love and looks forward to. I really enjoyed this book, and the author kept the story anchored in the time period, and made the reader not want to put it down.

It is a quick read, but one I hope everyone enjoys as much as I did. I look forward to reading the rest of this series, and see what is in store for the other two sisters. I am anxious to also read more of Sofia Hunt's books. I loved that her descriptions of Washington state's coastal region as it was like taking a journey back home.
