Prism Book Tour: The Express Rider's Lady

About the Book

Westward Wedding Journey

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.

Happy release day to a fab Love Inspired read!

My Review

This has to be one of the best Love Inspired books I've read to date. The Express Rider's Lady is just my type of story: a Western journey with a delightful mixture of humor, peril, and tender romance. I truly enjoyed the adventure!

I quite adored the hero, Myles. So, he's a bit brooding, let's be honest (is that a bad thing?)—but he's the kind of guy who's completely devoted to his friends and those in his care. There's this scene where it's been raining like crazy, and Delsie's health is at stake, and...well, I won't spoil the preciousness of the scene, but I'm utterly and completely a sucker for heroes with protective instincts as wide and fierce as the Wild West. *happy sigh*

I also really liked Delsie and their companion for the ride, Amos (a sweet older man who makes a great chaperone). The one main issue I had with the book was the ending. Not that the outcome isn't pleasing, but just that the effort to get there felt a little more dragged out than I'd prefer.

For a somewhat quick but very satisfying trip along the rugged routes of the Pony Express riders, complete with a romance that's as stirring as it is fun, let me introduce you to The Express Rider's Lady.

*With thanks to the author and Prism Book Tours for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion.*
