A Pony Express Romance by Misty M. BellerAfter growing up as an orphan, Josiah English wants nothing more than to have his own ranch and raise Arabian horses. Riding for the Pony Express seems like the ticket to his dream. And when he meets the stationmaster’s beautiful sister, it seems he may be within reach of the happy life he craves.

Mara Reid is thrilled to finally meet the man of her dreams, and the fact that they both want to raise horses in the Sweetwater River valley seems like confirmation straight from God.

But when the Express shuts down and Mara’s family home is in peril, the danger looming over Mara’s life may not be half as destructive as that threatening her heart.

My Thoughts

Does anyone else get tickled over westerns? Cowboys, stagecoaches, the Pony Express… what’s not to love? I’ve read so many that sometimes they start sounding the same but not so with this story! There’s nothing boring here!

As an orphan, Josiah English basically grew up between a rock and a hard place. He’s no stranger to hard work and loneliness which makes him an ideal candidate for a Pony Express route. Reading about these rugged express riders is enough to make my bones ache.

Mara Reid loves her life in the west. She helps her brothers run the station for express riders and the stagecoach but her passion is working with horses. Mara is a skilled trainer and she loves those horses like members of her family.

There are so many interesting elements within this story, from the stagecoach and Pony Express station to relations with natives and even the establishment of the telegraph! Fans of historical western romance will be as pleased as peach cobbler with A Pony Express Romance.

I purchased this book. The opinions expressed are my own.
