Boots Under Her Bed by Jodi Thomas and friends - Book Review

For this Texas gal, there is nothing better than a romance and a handsome cowboy to go along with it!  And with this new anthology, "Boots Under Her Bed," there is bucketfuls, or I should say, boot-fulls, of both!

About The Book:

From four acclaimed authors come four all-new novellas featuring the rugged men of the West and the women who want them….

From Jodi Thomas...Callie has done a lot of crazy things, but it’ll take one more to prove she isn’t nuts: find a husband, fast! Her only requirement: he has to be taller than she is and swear not to have her committed during their ruse of a marriage.
From Jo Goodman...Felicity Ravenwood was raised to be independent-minded, but when this runaway bride opposes her father’s choices, it is up to Nat Church to bring her around. But he doesn’t count on springing her from jail, holding her hostage, or falling head over boot-heels in love.
From Kaki Warner...Two strangers on a train have more in common than they know—both have hidden purposes and ties to a Nebraska bank robbery. But when their schemes unravel, they find a bigger surprise awaiting them than either could have imagined.

From Alison Kent...When runaway New York socialite Maeve Daugherty joins her father’s bodyguard Zeb Crow on his personal mission of revenge, what was a slightly scandalous new life as a bookkeeper for an infamous San Antonio brothel becomes downright dangerous. But that’s not stopping Maeve from having the time of her life.

My Thoughts:

You can always expect a great story from author Jodi Thomas, and her story, "Crazy Callie," is just excellent. This short story features a spunky heroine, a lawyer-turned-ranch owner, and a love story that will just delight readers.  Thomas creates a lovely romance that has a bit of spice to it as well.  I loved it and I think you will too!

Jo Goodman's offering, "Nat Church and the Runaway Bride," is a fun, lively story that was just a joy to read. I love the setting, taking place nearly entirely on a private rail coach, and I loved the characters - Ned, a dime novel hero, and Felicity, the opinionated gal that falls for him.  Lots of humor in this tale as well as lots of sparks!

Kaki Warner's story, "The Scent of Roses," wraps it's romance in a intriguing mystery, also set on a train.  Lots of fun bantering back and forth between the two main characters, and plenty of lively action as well.  The surprising ending will charm readers.

Alison Kent's tale, "The Hired Gun's Heiress," is a lovely story about a headstrong society girl who is determined to make her own way in the world, and the man who was hired to find her. The adventure that Maeve and Zeb find themselves embroiled in is dangerous and exciting, and the romance that sparks between them is heartwarming.

All four of these Western-flavored short novellas are a lot of fun to read and would be just perfect for warming up a chilly winter's night.  I highly recommend it!
