Présentation de l'éditeur

Crystal Clark arrives in Colorado's Yampa Valley amid the splendor of a high country June in 1892. After the death of her father, Crystal is relieved to be leaving the troubles of her Georgia life behind to visit her aunt Kate's cattle ranch. Despite being raised as a proper Southern belle, Crystal is determined to hold her own in this wild land--even if a certain handsome foreman doubts her abilities.

Just when she thinks she's getting a handle on the constant male attention from the cowhands and the catty barbs from some of the local young women, tragedy strikes the ranch. Crystal will have to tap all of her resolve to save the ranch from a greedy neighboring landowner. Can she rise to the challenge? Or will she head back to Georgia defeated?

Book one in the Heart of the West series, No Place for a Lady is full of adventure, romance, and the indomitable human spirit. Readers will fall in love with the Colorado setting and the spunky Southern belle who wants to claim it as her own.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Colorado Dreamin' 26 juin 2009
Par Mary Bowen - Publié sur
Finding a cowgirl outfit under the tree thrilled me as a five-year-old, and riding horses on my grandfather's farm later on was the ultimate treat, until I saw Colorado for the first time. That confirmed my love of all things western. While reading Maggie's book, I once again experienced the majesty of the Rockies and felt the warm camaraderie of ranch life. I faced my fears in a challenging trail drive and laughed and cried with the characters. Because the author researched the American west of the late 1800s, I learned many fascinating details of life in that time period, and felt drawn into the story of Crystal's new life there.

In the book, Crystal gradually develops from a pampered Southern belle to a capable leader who nonetheless retains her feminine charm. Her relationships also grow as she seeks God's help in her struggles. Luke, a tough, independent cowboy, starts to rethink his assumptions as he gets to know the intriguing Crystal. He discovers a personal God who changes him from the inside out. All through the book, whether rollicking in a barn dance or grieving the loss of a friend, Crystal and Luke's shared experiences mature them and bring them closer.

If you're looking for adventure, romance or inspiration, come visit Aspengold Ranch and sit a spell. You won't want to leave.

I was excited to read this book, being a fan of historical romances but quickly realized this one wasn't for me. The characters needed to be fleshed out more to make their conflict more believable. The ending was obvious from the beginning with a few awkward events thrown in as plot twists but none of them seemed very accurate to me. For example our pampered Georgia peach who lacks most domestic skills assumes the running of a ranch and even goes on a trail drive within months of her arrival in Colorado- uh huh. I also found the dialogue between characters to be stilted and almost silly at points which took me out of the story. I did finish the book hoping it would get better (it did not) but there are definately better historical/christian romance writers out there to spend an afternoon reading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Meet the New Heart of the West-An Author Riding the Forefront of Western Fiction! 23 janvier 2009
Par Kelly Long - Publié sur
Maggie Brendan is the new heart of western romance! She's got a pulsepoint for the mood, style, and moment of those delicious days gone by and weaves a plot tighter than a barbed wire cattle fence! Here's a book you can savor--if you like your heroines feisty and your cowboys lean and just a little mean. Wrangling romance between Crystal and Luke leaves the reader longing for more and Brendan doesn't disappoint with her teaser for the upcoming second novel. Maggie Brendan is a debut author with a very wise voice, warm, mellow, and charming. If you love Lavyrle Spencer, then take a ride on this Western plain and discover a writer and storyteller whose work you will follow for many years to come! Whoo-ee! Watch this new gal 'cause her wagon is hitched to the stars!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Real Treasure! 23 janvier 2009
Par Caroline Friday - Publié sur
If you've ever wondered what Scarlet O'Hara's life would be like as a cowgirl, then make sure you read No Place for a Lady. As a lover of southern heroines, I immediately felt a kindred spirit with Crystal Clark, the beautiful and spunky southern belle who must leave her Georgia home to live with her Aunt Kate on a cattle ranch in Aspengold, Colorado, set in the heart of the Yampa Valley. Of course, with all great historical romances, a cool and aloof love interest is waiting for her there, named Luke Weber, and just like Crystal, I had no trouble falling madly in love with him. In fact, all of the characters leapt off the page and into my heart; I could see them in every detail, even down to the stench of oiled leather and cowhide. The structure of the story kept me enthralled from the first page all the way to the last, and I thought about it long after I had finished reading. I even harbored the thought of putting on a pair of spurs and heading out west with a pair of low riders, boots and a Stetson so I could make myself at home on the saddle of a wild, majestic horse, just like Crystal and Luke! Truly, the natural beauty and simplicity of the life of a cowboy and ranch owner came to life in this story, not to mention the truth of love winning out against the odds of social division, tragedy and loss, and the conniving plans of a wonderfully interesting nemesis, April McBride. This is certainly a book that will stay on your shelf for years to come so you can share with your children and grandchildren.
