LOVED THIS BOOK i thought this was a good ending to the trilogy, Lucy and the Captain were great together, took some time for them to get really really physical but understandable if you meet your husband once in 5 years but worth the chemistry in the end. The other characters are just fun to read and of course the humor is always good the 3 books within the series was my first JODI THOMAS read and won't be my last..

Loved this book which is the third book of a series. The characters are wonderfully developed. The story captured my interest immediately and I just wanted to do nothing but read until I was finished. Each book in the series stands alone but if possible read all 4 books as characters from each book are common throughout.

Another darling Jodi Thomas read!
With her combination of firey female characters and long-legged cowboys, she continues the story of the three women bought in the marriage lottery. I especially like that her characters act like real people- bull-headed, thoughtless and their actions often lacking common sense.

4 stars. The hero's father buys the heroine in a wife lottery and marries her to the hero (who is off in the army) by proxy. After a brief, unhappy first encounter several years after the 'wedding,' the protagonists don't see each other again until he is granted 30 days leave and ordered to go protect his wife from an outlaw who's probably gunning for her. Despite the short timespan, their growing love for each other seems believable. The hero is tender, the heroine is likable; the book seems balanced between plot and love story. All in all a great read.

From Amazon.com:

acy, 15, and her two friends fight off Big Zeb Whitaker, a ruthless outlaw who tries to rape them. Convinced that they've killed him, they turn themselves over to the sheriff in Cedar Point, Texas, a town with an acute shortage of available females. The devious lawman tells them that if they participate in a wife lottery, he'll drop the charges. Lacy is bailed out by a man who owns a printing shop. He marries her to his son, Captain Walker Larson, by proxy, and raises her like his own daughter. Three years later the elder Larson dies, and Lacy shows up at the captain's outpost, meeting him for the first time. After a hasty and reluctant consummation, Lacy heads back to the shop. When Big Zeb is released from prison, he vows revenge on the three women. Walker shows up under orders to protect Lucy, but she doesn't want anything to do with him. This can't-put-it-down tale is the perfect ending to Thomas' most excellent trilogy
