After years of isolation on top of Hope Mountain, Ilsa Nordegren may finally be ready to leave. Raised to fear the world, Ilsa and her sisters never planned on coming down, but when the Warden family arrived in need, they had to help. And it may cost them everything.
Having made his fortune, Mitch Warden returned home and found the family homestead abandoned. In a land grab, a ruthless cattle baron had forced his family to escape up the mountain, and when he follows, the last thing he expects is to fall smitten to a black-haired woman who dresses like Robin Hood.
Warden is intent on helping his family reclaim their land, but doesn’t realize the risks his past has brought. Dangerous men have tracked him, and rather than risk innocent lives, he’s determined to end the danger. But that means a journey to the city–and when Ilsa insists on joining him, the mismatched pair suddenly find themselves on a venture they’ll never forget.
Woman of Sunlight, a bright title that leaves me almost expecting a book with an Indian (I know it’s not politically correct but as someone with some Cherokee blood in my family, I find it fine to refer to Native Americans as Indians as well… *shrugs*) woman who was named Woman of Sunlight, I knew it wouldn’t be that way but that’s almost what the title made me think and I was unsure of how it would fit the book until I started reading, and then it made perfect sense. I found the title was completely correct.
After reading about Mitch’s and Ilsa’s banter in book one of the Brides of Hope Mountain I was excited to see where they would go, I wasn’t expecting what happened to happen, for them to marry like they did, for the reasons they did, and since it went like it did I’d say this book is better for readers over the age of sixteen.
I didn’t find Mitch to be hero material in Aiming for Love, he wasn’t that impressive, he lacked a good character and was somewhat annoying but I still almost liked him. Just found him lacking, in Woman of Sunlight from his perspective I found that he was actually a good character.
I liked the glimpses into Ursula and what I expect her story to be in the next book, I am eagerly waiting for the conclusion to the Brides of Hope Mountain series.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
