2nd book in the series&it just keeps getting better...
This was a really great book. Fern is 2nd in the Seven Brides series. Rose was the first book. Both books were wonderful. This book has a murder mystery that plays right along with the romance. Fern&Madison have a cat&dog fighting relationship at first that quickly turns into a very dear romance. Fern has been dressing in men's clothes for years&finds it hard to believe that there is a beautiful woman under those clothes. She has low self-esteem but it's fun watching Madison change her mind. Rose&George from book 1 play a big part in this book. It was neat seeing Madison reunited with his family. Highly recommended.

A wonderful read.
Madison Randolph (given up for dead by all but brother George), has been estranged from his family for years. All his life, his cruel father regarded his love of books as a weakness and tormented him unmercifully. Never cut out to be a rancher, Madison leaves home to escape his feelings of inadequacy.
Year later he becomes a successful Boston lawyer. He has everything he has ever wanted but somewhere deep down he has never forgotten the family he left behind. When his brother Hen is falsely accused of murder he sees his chance to go home and prove his worthiness by proving Hen's innocence. Old family resentments the "Flower Woman" as different from him as night and day, seem to stand in his way.

Fern, the pants wearing beauty, hiding behind a dark secret, needs this proper gentleman as much as he need her. Together they bare their souls and heal each others hearts. With Ferns help Madison finds his place in his family. This is the second book in the Seven Brides Series. I recommend reading them all.

A man of taste and culture, James Madison Randolph enjoyed the refined pleasures of life in Boston. It had been years since the suave lawyer abandoned the Randolph's ramshackle ranch--and the dark secrets that haunted him there. Forced to return to the hated frontier when his brother was falsely accused of murder, he still had no use for anything it had to offer--not the backbreaking work, not the barren wastelands, and especially not the sharp tounged vixen who wanted to gun down his entire family.

As tough as any cowhand in Kansas, Fern Sproull would see her cousin's killer hang for his crime and no smooth talking city slicker would stop her from seeing justice done. But one look at Madison Randolph awakened a tender longing to taste heaven in his kiss. While the townsfolk of Abilene prepared for the trial of the century, Madison and Fern readied themselves for a knock down drag out battle of the sexes that might just have two winners.

Madison Randolph left Texas and his large family a bitter and angry teenager 10 years ago. He is now a successful lawyer in Boston. He has come to Abilene KS to defend one of his twin brothers, Hen, who has been accused of murder. He is reunited with his oldest brother George and with Hen who is not too pleased that Madison is there is help him. Hen is still bitter that Madison walked out on the family and is willing to continue to hold a grudge even if it means he is convicted of a murder he did not commit.

Fern Sproull is a farmer's daughter who wears men's clothing, works like a ranch hand and goes out of her way to make men and women alike afraid of her. She is spitting mad that another of the Randolph clan has arrived to save the man she is convinced murdered her cousin.

Fern and Madison meet almost as soon as he steps off the train and sparks fly. Good and bad sparks. She fusses and fumes at Madison about being there to get a murderer out of jail.

And in the manner of all good romances, Fern and Madison soon develop feelings for each other but are afraid to express it. Both are hiding from secrets in their past that they are not willing to deal with at the present time. Over a period of time they are able to express their feelings and reveal the secrets of the past and then they were headed for their happy ever after.
