Montana Morning by Jill Limber

In the Montana Territory town of Dennison, the law allows a woman to save a man from hanging if she agrees to marry him. Battered and nearly unconscious with a noose around his neck, Katherine Holman decides Wes Merrick is perfect husband material. Under the terms of her father’s will, due to a youthful indiscretion, she must be married to inherit. She expects her ‘husband’ to leave as soon as the deed is in her name. She wasn’t prepared for the fact that the man she has chosen turns out to be an honorable sort who decides to stick around and hold up his end of the bargain.

My Review:

The day Katherine Holman goes into town, and makes up her mind to marry a man about to be hanged, is a turning point in every ones lives. Her Father had made keeping the Ranch an almost impossible feat. She had to marry a Man with a knowledge of Ranching in order to keep her home.
She comes into town just as they are hanging five men for rustling. Looking the men over she makes her choice of the man that is unconscious...there was a little know law on the books. A man about to be hung could be rescued, as long as they didn't know each other. They also must marry....a very unusual law, and I'm sure was taken off the books immediately after this incident happened.
When horrible things start happening at the Ranch, you will wonder if it is the rescued man, Wes Merrick who she has nursed to recovery. Or who else would be doing these things to her.
We meet darling Hannah a precocious daughter of Katherine. Also there is sweet Consuela, who acts like a mother to Katherine.
A very enjoyable story, but there is some explicit sex described.

I received this book from the Author Jill Limber, and was not required to give a positive review.

  3. This sounds like a great book. It has been years since I've read something like this, but I may just have to get this one on my Kindle.
