Rachel Matthews isn't one to rely on others to take care of her. Homeless and alone, she still wants to make her own way and her own money to buy back the family ranch--even if she's forced into the life of a dance hall girl. Horrified by her circumstances, Rachel's brother, who is away mining for gold, sends a friend to rescue her.

Cattle baron John McIntyre is focused on acquiring as much land as possible in Montana and has little time to deal with a dance hall gal. Rachel isn't sure she can take one more day in John's home--especially once she discovers that he's the one who holds ransom the key to her family's future.

Sparks fly between this spunky, independent heroine and the ruggedly handsome hero as they navigate the snarled terrain of pride, greed, faith, and love in Maggie Brendan's delightful series set in the Old West.

Maggie Brendan continues her Virtues and Vices of the Old West series with another engaging novel. The pages are peppered with lively action, beginning with the dramatic opening, and plenty of verbal sparring. Vivid scenes and memorable characters bring the Montana frontier to life, making me grateful for the wider array of employment options available to women today. While many things have changed, however, the battles of the heart and soul are timeless, and Brendan expertly weaves a relevant message of faith and love into this heartwarming story. I'm already eagerly awaiting the next book in this series. It will be your own bitter mishap if you overlook this book so grab your copy of A Sweet Misfortune today!
