Nothing Short of Wondrous (American Wonders #2) by Regina Scott

It is 1886, and the government has given the US Cavalry control of Yellowstone. For widowed hotelier Kate Tremaine, the change is a welcome one. She knows every inch of her wilderness home like the back of her hand and wants to see it protected from poachers and vandals.

Refused a guide by Congress, Lieutenant William Prescott must enlist Kate's aid to help him navigate the sprawling park and track down the troublemakers. But a secret from his past makes him wary of the tender feelings the capable and comely widow raises in him. When her 6-year-old son is kidnapped by a poacher who wants the boy to guide him to the place where the last of the Yellowstone bison congregate, Will and Kate must work together to rescue him, save the bison, and protect the park. In doing so, they may just find that two wounded hearts can share one powerful love when God is in control.


About The Author

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing. Since her first Regency romance was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She is now the author of more than 50 works of warm, witty historical romance.

She and her husband of 30 years reside in Washington State on the way to Mt. Rainier. Regina Scott has driven four in hand, learned to fence, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course.

My Review

Through the eyes of the author we get to see the beauty of Yellowstone, and yes I have been there, but this is when the government has given the US Cavalry control.
We are given a widow who is running a hotel in the park, and raising a precocious six year old boy, he is such a delight. We find out why she is a widow, we see and meet least savory characters that make an illegal income poaching, and we meet a Lieutenant with the Calvary, that is determined to stop this horrible crimes.
Our Lieutenant has a secret that took him down once, and we learn it and. The effect it had on his career and life. We see sparks fling between Kate, our widow, and Will, our Lt. but can they overcome the obstacles that are thrown at them?
Now this is the second book in this series, and yes, it can be read alone, but you might want to read the first once you pick this one up!

I received this book through Net Galley and Revell Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.
