Book Review: The Express Rider's Lady by Stacy Henrie

The Express Rider's Lady

Book Description:

Delsie Radford is going to make it to California, no matter the danger or difficulty. Her father may have kept her and her sister apart, but Delsie refuses to miss her sister's wedding—even with only eighteen days to get there. And she's found the perfect escort in Pony Express rider Myles Patton.

Myles can't believe it when a pretty socialite hires him to take her cross-country through rough terrain and dangerous territory. Surely she'll quit before they reach their destination—he's known girls like her before. But the longer they ride together, the more Myles notices Delsie's toughness and kindness beneath her polished exterior. And though they may be worlds apart…they might just be perfect for each other.

Book Review:

Sigh. I love a good historical romance, and I'll admit that I enjoy stories about the Pony Express (did you ever watch that show a looooong time ago? Good times, good times).  Unrelated, but if you read this book you should definitely read the note from the author at the end. It's really interesting and explains the time-line of things if you are a stickler for accuracy.

Can I admit that I'm still shocked every time I read a book by this publisher? I guess this line from Harlequin is clean and religious, but it still gets me :) And can I complain a little about the size of the book? I am getting used to the wider and higher books. My hand hurt from holding this :)

Does it seem like I'm nit-picking? I am, it's true. Really, I loved this book. The story was great, and moved along at a good clip (which is tricky since they are covering so many miles). The ending might have been a little hasty, but I would definitely read this again, and highly recommend it to anyone who loves historical romance. Hopefully you will love Delsie's grit, and Myles character just like I did.
