Rating: 4 Cups
Richard Rayburn must marry by his twenty-fifth birthday or forfeit six hundred acres of land. When his fiancé suddenly breaks off their engagement, he must find a bride fast.
Widow Julia Blackmon has fallen on desperate times. When she assumes the role of the Black Bandit, Richard believes her to be the real bandit, and offers only one solution.
Bandits do not scare Richard and he lets his brother know he can hold his own should he be attacked. He has other pressing issues; finding a bride since his fiancé dumped him. When he is robbed, he has no idea it is the woman he met earlier at the ball, until he removes her mask. Julia is aware he is the most eligible man in town. He is a rancher, not a gentleman, and does not believe any woman he chooses can handle living on a ranch. Julia cannot remember the last time she was really cared for by a man. Donned as the Black Bandit, she never imagined Richard to be the first person she robbed. He gives her an ultimatum; go to jail, and possibly be hanged, or marry him.
Fit To Be Tied is a stimulating read. Richard and Julia are fantastic together. I love how they interact and the way their relationship slowly buds. He is a take-charge kind of hero that can come over to my house anytime. The camaraderie and banter the two share really make this read worthwhile. Myla Jackson weaves a delightful plot, with a few good twists and turns, and passion galore to make this a great story. The secondary characters blend in very well, adding great dimension to the storyline. I found this one read that should not be missed. This reader found it truly entertaining at its best.
