Publisher's Summary

Stepping off the train in Sweetwater Springs, Montana, Elizabeth Hamilton is filled with relief, nerves, and the thrill of hope. Life on her dear friend’s ranch will be very different than Gilded Age Boston’s high society. But at least here, Elizabeth is far from her spiteful sister-in-law and the bittersweet memories of her late fiancé.

Nick Sanders has loved Elizabeth since he first glimpsed her portrait - not that he dare admit it. A ranch hand has no call to woo a well-born lady, especially when she’s being courted by the town’s finest gentleman. Yet there’s something in her mix of courage and compassion that won’t let Nick quit.

In Wild Montana Sky, Debra Holland’s acclaimed USA Today best-selling romance, Elizabeth faces the hardships and dangers of the West with resilience that surprises even her.

finish but who thinks like that?

The narration of this book was good which kept me listening. I really just had a problem with the storyline. The heroines fiance dies. And she meets his cousin because he looks just like her fiance she tries to get with him. My problem is I couldn't put myself in her frame of mind. I would never want to replace my fiance with a carbon copy. That's not real love. And she spends most of the book doing this.

A Sweet Romance

Elizabeth Hamilton, a Boston socialite, lost her first love to illness and never embarked upon another serious relationship. She is content playing hostess for her brother Lawrence, who lived the life of a confirmed bachelor. However, while on a business trip to New York, Lawrence begins a whirlwind courtship with a young widow named Genia and they quickly marry. This surprise marriage is the beginning of Elizabeth’s troubles and leads her on the path of new opportunities.

Nick Sanders works as a ranch hand for Elizabeth’s best friend Pamela and her husband John. Nick is a simple man, who has his whole world turned upside down when sent to Boston to persuade Elizabeth to move to Montana. Nick’s attraction to Elizabeth is instantaneous but he has his work cut out for him because they come from two different worlds.

Wild Montana Sky is a sweet historical western romance. There is no sex between the main characters but that doesn’t detract from the romance or story. The storyline is strong and the characters are well developed. I loved watching Elizabeth grow from city girl to country woman. This transition also mimics Elizabeth’s growth as a person. I was very pleased with how Elizabeth discovered her true feelings for Nick and how she finally recognized Caleb’s shallowness. Wild Montana Sky is a wonderful love story and a great read for any fan of the historical western genre.

Easy Listening, Sweet Historical Romance

If you are looking for an easy listen of early Montana settlers and a gentle romance, this is it. It was a good change of pace for me, as I don't usually listen to romance books. When I do, I like them to be like this one, clean and sweet, with a real story included.

This is not a romance

I don't understand why this book is categorized as a romance. This is historical fiction with just a tiny dash of mild romance. It was a long and very boring story. The characters are not believable and the "romance" was tepid. To make matters worse the narration was terrible. Ms. Ross makes very good male voices but she made the heroine sound overly dramatic and annoying. I would return this audiobook if I could.
If you're looking for a western romance- stay away from this title.
If you're looking for a western fiction story with clean "blink and you miss it" romance then this is for you.

Part one- so far so good.

I hope it continues along as it has so far. I do hope part two does not drag out who the best guy is for her too long or it could get boring. But part one gets a thumbs up👍🏼

What a lovely book!

I enjoyed every moment of this story. I had to break up the book over several days, and even dreamt of it. The characters are so personable and falling in love, hoping and awaiting the next happenings basically happened automatically. I can't wait to start the next book of the series.

Very Nice Christian Romance

It's nice to read a story with a plot that isn't focused on how often toy can get in the bedroom. This story had a lovely plot and most of the characters portrayed the kind of person I hope I am. It's nice to know the sort of challenges pioneer men and women faced on a day to day basis.

Not worth the time

The narrator was awful. I couldn't get into the story at all. I don't think I'll continue the series. Sorry.

Great Story

This was a lovely story to listen to, both in terms of its content and the narrator. I look forward to listening to the next book in the series.
