Zane (7 Brides for 7 Soldiers) by Christie Ridgway
Zane (7 Brides for 7 Soldiers Book 3) - Christie Ridgway

 

How a person views themselves, is not necessarily how others see them.  With a touch of humor and an abundance of heart and wisdom, Ms. Ridgway sets about making her presence known in an already mind blowing series.  Zane is the jock, always on the lookout for his next adventure.  Harper has gotten used to watching from the sidelines, now she's ready to try something different.  Less watching, more doing.  She's one step away from rethinking her approach when a matchmaking fur ball, takes a little gamble of his own.  With an empowering message and an adorable cast of misfits, Christie Ridgway is on her way to stealing the show.

Wildfire by Zane Grey
Wildfire - Zane Grey

***eBook available for free on Amazon***

Lucy Bostil has been a tomboy all her life, riding the most willful horses, doing anything she pleases, more than content with her life, but when she meets Lin Sloan, she learns she hasn't yet lived her life to the fullest.

Sloan has followed the wild horse he's named Wildfire for months and across thousands of miles before he captured him. When Lucy stumbles across him on one of her rides, both man and untamed horse fall for the spirited young woman, but danger is looming ever closer and both man and beast will strike a hard bargain to save the woman they love.


This is far from height of literature, and let's face it, the love story, hidden between these pages, is rather cheesy and not very-well written. I could even say Zane Grey is an acquired taste. A taste that I appreciate.

I don't read his stories for the plots or the romance or the characters. I love his stories for his descriptive narrative style. When I read the scenes with Sloan stubbornly following Wildfire through the desert, the high plains, and the monumental canyons, images rise in front of my eyes as if I was watching a movie. As if I was there.
I rode alongside Lucy that day when she ventured into the valley of monuments and found Wildifire, Nagger and Sloan, I sat beside old man (and utter bastard) Bostil as he watched the first race between Sage Kind and Wildfire, I was there on the arduous trek through the canyons with Lucy and her pursuer, and I trembled as I watched that last race-for-life through the blazing forest.

The story was nice and rather well-written, but merely an ornament to the imagery and descriptions of the vast plains, deep canyons, the roaring Colorado and the fields of sage. The romance and that last few suspenseful chapters were merely a bonus.

Book Haul!
Lincoln as I Knew Him: Gossip, Tributes, and Revelations from His Best Friends and Worst Enemies - Harold Holzer
The Top Ten: Writers Pick Their Favorite Books - J. Peder Zane
The Animal Review: The Genius, Mediocrity, and Breathtaking Stupidity That Is Nature - Jacob Lentz,Steve Nash
If You Ask Me (And of Course You Won't) - Betty White
Living With Books - Alan Powers

So after all that cleaning and tidying of the library last weekend I felt the need to undo all my good work, and went on a small binge.  Ok, medium sized binge.  The first batch arrived today, which was pretty good timing because a trip to the city centre of Melbourne had me pretty cranky with humanity.

 

Normally, I'd include a pic of the books, but, while my library might be tidy, my coffee table is absolutely not and I'm not letting y'all see my mess.  

 

A bit of everything in this box, including Living With Books, which is probably what I'm looking forward to most, and the title that will surprise everyone the least. 

 

Here's hoping everyone has a lovely weekend!

With or Without You
With or Without You - Zane Riley With or Without You - Zane Riley WITH OR WITHOUT YOU by Zane Riley is the second book in the “Go Your Own Way” series. It continues the story of a developing romantic relationship between two high school seniors. Between college plans, a violent homophobic attack on one of the boys, and dealing with falling in love with your polar opposite, this book is both heartwarming and heart-wrenching.
