Cassandra Griffin is alone, and expecting a child after her husband dies. As a pretty young widow, it will not take long for the men to come calling.
Red Dawson is a God-fearing man and cannot marry a non-believer. No matter how much the China doll needs a husband, he has to stick to his guns or can he?
Wade Sawyer has some heavy burdens to carry while living under his father’s roof. He would do anything to be with the China doll.
Cassie is beside herself as she buries her husband. Life will be hard in the unsettled west with no husband. In no time, the men start stampeding for her affection but only one takes action. Red knew it was not good reasoning to marry Cassie with her being a non-believer. He finds her a China doll but cannot allow her to land in any man’s arms. Red intends on being a good provider for her and the baby. Wade is not happy that Cassie married Red. It is hard enough Wade lives on his dad’s ranch with a cruel father but now the woman he desires is in the arms of another man. The only way to take away the woman he loves, which is bound to another, is to kill Red, but can Wade go that far?
I must say Montana Rose was a thrilling read. Mary Connealy pens a read so true to form in the Wild West. She made the story so factual that I wanted to jump through time after reading how women were treated. That was so very true. I could only feel compassion for Cassie and her problematic life. Then there is Red and Wade, one cannot help but be torn between these two remarkable men. Ms. Connealy digs deep into the hearts of these three powerful characters to make an extraordinary tale that left this reader in complete awe.
