Do read the other sisters' stories, but you might want to pass on this one. Unless, of course, you enjoy a "romance" novel with boring, repetitive sex scenes, a "hero" who treats women like crap and an "innocent" heroine who gives it away the first chance she gets to - the guy who treats women like crap!(...and keeps giving, and giving, ad nauseum.) I forced myself to finish this book because I don't think it's fair to review something I haven't read all the way through. But when I got done all I could think was thank goodness I read Emma and Caroline's stories first. If I had read L&tM first, I likely never would have picked up the others. They are both terrific books, filled with the tenderness and gentle love missing from "Lily...". I recommend them highly, but readers who love true romance shouldn't bother with this one.

This is Lily's story. She falls for a man in the military, but that causes a problem. It was a military man that pressured Lily's mother to put her and her two sisters (Caroline and Emma) on the Orphan train when they were very young. So, Lily is not ready to fall in love with the major. The book was loaded with romance and takes place in the early west. The other two books in the series are EMMA AND THE OUTLAW and CAROLINE AND THE RAIDER.

This story has everything. A hero and heroine that you can easily fall in love with. They're well suited. For a change she isn't helpless waiting for rescue and he isn't brooding waiting for someone to see his softer side. There is romance and humor and the love scenes are too hot!! This a great book! It was non-stop action and a real page turner. They were hot for each other right from the beginning. Lily was very defiant and fighting the feelings she had for Caleb and he was at times more than exasperated with her. I cannot count the number of times he threatened to spank her, but they truly loved each other. This book has everything...great sex, humor and undying love. I highly recommend this along with the other two in the Orphan trilogy...Emma and the Outlaw and Caroline and the Raider! All three are keepers!
