The Major's Daughter (Fort Reno, #3) by Regina Jennings

Caroline Adams returns to Indian Territory after tiring of confining society life. She wants adventure, and when she and her friend Amber come across swaggering outlaw Frisco Smith, they find his dreams for the new territory are very persuasive. With the much-anticipated land run pending, they may just join the rush.

Growing up parentless, all Frisco Smith wanted was a place to call his own. It's no wonder that he fought to open the Unassigned Lands. After years of sneaking across the border, he's even managed to put in a dugout house on a hidden piece of property he's poised to claim.

When the gun sounds, everyone's best plans are thrown out the window in the chaos of the run. Caroline and Frisco soon find themselves battling over a claim--and both dig in their heels. Settling the rightful ownership will bring these two closer than they ever expected and change their ideas of what a true home looks like.

My Review


I enjoyed this story, and could just picture these people at the line waiting to cross to a new life, and the race and for some disappointment. Then there were the cheaters, and thus we have a story!
I loved how the author used a primitive [in today’s standards] to prove that some were not honest, but you will have to read this to find out how.
There is a bit of romance, storms, and compassion here, and all for a better life. When the character of Frisco is introduced, I found myself disliking him, but wow did my opinion changed! Then there is Caroline, and I loved her, what a strong considerate woman, full of gumption and dreams.
This read came alive for me, and when I finished I really wanted more!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House and was not required to give a positive review.
