    Violet is an American heiress in London about to enter her first season. She is sure her wealth and beauty will land her a rich husband. But first she must go back to Philadelphia to iron out whatever problems her twin brothers cabled her about. After arriving in Philly she’s off to the wild, wild west in search of her missing father. Excellent story with the lovely characters. Johanna Lindsey still has the gift! 😊💕📚

    The second half of this historical romance was exciting but it was slow going getting there. I liked the plot and action when it happened. I waffled on the characters believability; sometimes their behavior seemed genuine and other times unrealistic. Violet travels from London to Montana to fix her families financial problems where she must deal with Morgan to claim her father silver mine.

    I am of two minds of this one. It had a good non-romance story. One of those classic stories of the West where there is a dastardly businessman who controls the economic future of a whole region. (That could never happen today.) Enter obstinate independent businessman. Add little Miss Pluck who is trying to save the inheritance of her brothers. Threats to life and virtue. Obstinate businessman turns out to have a heart of gold (well, silver). My problem was the romance part. Not, that they didn' I am of two minds of this one. It had a good non-romance story.

The problem for me was you couldn't see it until the 2nd half of the book when the author FINALLY gave us a glimpse of the hero's feelings and thoughts. I have always liked the books where we get to see both sides. But in this one, we didn't really get that. We saw his actions, we heard his voice, but no point of view for over 100 pages. That's why I gave this only 3 stars.

    I received this book today via a goodreads giveaway. This book did not disappoint. Johanna Lindsay has a wonderful way of weaving a story. Once I started I couldn't put it down. Great story and a fast read. The only negative is that I finished so fast.

    Another great story Johanna Lindsey has written another great love story. I love how the main characters are stuck together with each other and passion comes naturally as they interact. She doesn't overdo the sex so that it just seems like sex; the emotions are fully involved, more so than just the passion.

    Marry Me by Sundown was a good book but it didn't have the fun vibe as good as the previous books had. I also missed the scenes in which the main characters would work toward their mutual goal—it was more like, Morgan did his own thing and Violet did her own thing and sometimes they got together and did... each other.

    What can I say? I love all of Johanna Lindsey's books! I was not disappointed by her latest! I was at the bookstore the day it was released! I felt it was nice that Morgan was the ultimate nice guy, yes, (spoiler alert) he does kidnap her however he treats her quite often as more of a parter than otherwise. Considering the time setting of the book, and historically the author is more about the hero male, and the weaker female (at times) or with more brute force type from the males, I felt this boo What can I say?

Considering the time setting of the book, and historically the author is more about the hero male, and the weaker female (at times) or with more brute force type from the males, I felt this book was a tad more progressive for the time period. Johanna Lindsey's style of writing seems a bit different with this book and thats by far not a negative comment, however perhaps I think that because I just finished re-reading a medival book of hers and with this western themed book she has adapted her writing style and of course her word choices to suit the time period. This is a fantastic light book with a good sense of humor, easy to follow and is the ultimate win for the "good guy finishing first" type.

    Calling this a DNF because I skimmed my way through it. I think it's time for me to be done with Johanna Lindsey's books. This was absurd.

Good storyline with a buffet of my favorite genre tidbits ... mining; a saddle weary, pampered heroine; difficult and brooding hero turned thoughtful, kind and chock full of love; a big and boisterous family of brothers lead by a strong but warm matriarch ... the plot wasn’t overly unique but neither was it predictable and “formularic”. There was some steam but by no means was it gratuitous. I am not a fan of the overly sanitized romances but I don’t particularly enjoy bedroom scenes for the sake of filling in the pages either. I ‘read’ this one on Audible and Pilar Witherspoon gives her usual stellar performance ... I had no idea she could master British accents and Irish brogues too! Credit worthy? Surely - give one up for this tale.

    I received a copy through a Goodreads sweepstakes. First: I loved Johanna Lindsey 10 years ago. Back then I favored romance novels. Now I find fantasy more interesting. Second: I have not read the other books in the series. For the review: I enjoyed this book. I was bored for awhile and think Violet is an idiot more often than not but by the end I was caught up in the story. None of the characters are particularly likable in my opinion but real people are flawed so I can accept flawed characters. I I received a copy through a Goodreads sweepstakes.

There is no stand out thing about this book but it was an enjoyable read.

    I absolutely loved Marry Me by Sundown. Violet is an American heiress who has been living in England with relatives. She is summoned back to the US by her brothers when her father is missing. Most of the story takes place in 1880’s Montana during the height of the gold rush. There are outlaws, gunmen, kidnappings, a duel, miners, bandits and a case of mistaken identity!

    Good addition to the series. I liked the relationship between Violet and Morgan. When she first met Morgan she likened him to a bear, but as time went on they became friends and then closer. As angry as Morgan was with Violet he still helped her and her brothers, by lending them the money. But I liked that Violet always made sure that she and her brothers would pay Morgan back. I couldn't believe how cut throat Sullivan was. He wanted the mines and would stop at nothing to get them, not even mur Good addition to the series.

    I was so excited when I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway, I have been a fan of Johanna Lindsey since I was a teenager, and she doesn't disappoint. Though I didn't care for the characters at first, Violet was annoying. Eventually, they grew on me and I liked Morgan in the end. I enjoy how the novel developed the friendship between the two characters before it blossomed into love. Overall, the novel had a good plot, action, and romance.

    The first romance novel that I read was one from Johanna Lindsey and it was that book that made me love this genre. It is books like this that continue to keep me reading. I had just finished Wildfire In His Arms when I got the exciting news that I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway. I have to say I really enjoyed this book. It was perfect for a lazy summer day. The banter between Violet and Morgan made me smile. The plot was fast paced and exciting, it kept me reading all day.

    I won this book from Gallery Books. I really like the author Lindsay, and this book was just as good as her others. Morgan had to deal with what he thought was a snotty,actress trying to get his mine. Violet had to deal with a recluse, secretive man to take care of her father's affairs. They both had to deal with unscrupulous men, to protect themselves and their property.

    Partners of Silver and Gold Great story of what happened with gold and silver miners. How some partner up to watch every other back. How to families merged to be one. Look forward to the next story. Hard to put down the book. Love this story. The Audible was fantastic and was more enjoyable than with out it.

    What is happening!? I use to buy JL's book straight away - now I just get them at the library. I don't know when the change from epic author to just the obligatory forced one novel a year thing happened, but her books aren't the same. Would kill to have the old JL back! Needless to say, I can't give her less than 3 stars, call it devotion to a once epic author.

    I've read a number of novels by Johanna Lindsey over the years. You can count on her books to have an interesting plot, a feisty heroine, a seductive hero and a good bit of action. This one is no exception. A quick and enjoyable read that I recommend to anyone who enjoys a historical romance. I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway for this honest review.

    Not sure if I like the idea of her travelling to the west to look for her father instead of her older siblings. It also took quite awhile before we were made aware of Morgan’s feelings, not quite a slow burn, but the romance was missing for quite a chunk of the story. Only started warming up to him after that. Second half of story saved the day.

    Johanna Lindsey never disappoints. I was lucky to win an early copy of the book via Goodreads and read it as soon as it arrived. Her heroine is fearless and spunky; you want Violet to succeed and save her family...then you want her to realize what she really wants in life. I thoroughly enjoyed this book

    Another good story I love Johanna Lindsey. In this story we return to Montana. The story was good. The characters were good. The only reason I held back a fifth star was because for me this wasn’t as blowout outstanding as some of her other works. But it was still worth the read.

    Violet is a great character traveling to the West to find her dad and/or his fortune. She travels across the pond, giving up the "Season" to go West alone is a fun one day read. Suspense, laughter, romance, and more all wrapped up together transporting you back to cowboy/mining days. Thanks!

    Meh...... a different romance with the girl going to look for her missing father in the Wild West while longing for civilized society in England. Didn’t really feel the love between the main characters and she ,in particular, became really annoying. Everyone was so tame, no fire!
