A Sweet Misfortune

Rachel Matthews is homeless and alone, but she isn't one to rely on others for her care.  She is determined to make her own money and buy back her families ranch.  She takes the job of a dance hall girl.  When her brother, who is away, finds out he is desperate to save his sister's reputation so he calls on his good friend John McIntyre.

John is ranching the farm that used to belong to Rachel's family.  He purchased it with the option of selling it back in a couple years once the family got back on their feet.  When John barges into the place where Rachel is working and throws her over his shoulder she is appalled.  He hauls her back to the ranch.  John's mother convince Rachel to stay on and not go back to the dance hall.  It's not long before sparks begin to fly between John and Rachel, but there is plenty of things to come in between them in this Virtues and Vices of the Old West novel.

I really enjoyed the first couple chapters of this book.  It was fun and entertaining, but it soon lost its flair.  I enjoyed Rachel's character, but when there started being so many men vying for her attention it began to get a little irritating to me.  It's one thing to have a love triangle, but when it becomes more than three it starts to become a little shallow for me.

From the get go it is easy to predict that John and Rachel will end up together and I would of much rather read a more romantic tale of these two likable characters and how they overcame their differences to be together.

***Thank you to Revell for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
