    COULD A WOMAN TAKE CHARGE OF HER OWN DESTINY? I am very impressed with this debut novel by new author, Dana Alden, and looking forward to book 2 in the Mountain Men of Montana series, Mining For Love. The story has mystery, suspense, danger, angst, fear, determination, courage, and strong characters.

The story is a clean, historical romantic suspense tale with a diverse cast of characters, plenty of interaction, a touch of mystery, a dash of romance, plenty of danger that will keep this tale on course. You will have the good, the bad, and the ugly of people, but you also will be engrossed in a tale that will keep the pages turning with the happily ever after ending. The plot will have Amanda leaving Massachusetts and setting across the country to join her step-brother, Samuel, in Virginia City, Montana. She will travel to help a couple whose wife is expecting, to earn her way, but with her death, that leaves Amanda in a bind. She will join a group of miners being lead to Virginia City where she will cook and mend clothing along the trail. But when danger happens with an ambush, her safety is in jeopardy, and it will all change with the arrival of a mountain man, Cal Ayers. He and Amanda will leave Mr. Smith’s group to keep her safe and hopefully, divert any other attacks. That is where this tale will take the reader. Not everyone is as they portray themselves and eventually they will meet their comeuppance. “And so, Amanda Hildreth left the pack train to ride off into a new part of the wilderness on a horse named Miss Molly, with a scruffy mountain man named Calvin Ayers.”

Other than that, he was clean, very well-mannered, extremely courteous to the heroine and was in fact lonely and looking for a wife. The heroine had no sense of danger at all and was more often than not TSTL. The hero and heroine basically fell in love with each other during a 24-hour'ish horse ride to the next town. No kissing, no hand holding... I think their respect and love for nature is what got stars in the eyes for each other. (eye roll)

    In this historical Western romance, all the facets for a suspenseful, adventurous romance come together. Cal Ayers makes a drool-worthy hero whilst Amanda is a heroine I could easily relate to. She has courage and determination, but that doesn’t exempt her from experiencing fear in the face of eminent danger. I enjoyed the insights into pioneer life as well as the glimpses of history. The story is well written with a good plot and kept my attention all the way through.

    This is a new-to-me author and I love the western romance genre' so immediately, I wanted to read this book. It is a clean story without profanity, in-depth shootings and no sensual content. Amanda went west alone to find her step-brother, Samuel, and make a life for herself. Along the way she has problems, death around her and harsh conditions. Thanks for a nice read.

    Well written and accurate. I was pleased to find a western/mountain man book written by a woman. About a woman. And a smart sensible woman at that. No screaming and swooning for this girl. It was accurate to the time and place. The life wasn't easy and peeing in the woods was the least of the concerns women faced at that time. But it was amusing to have that included. This book was a reminder that the fellas didn't settle and populate the West by themselves. There were women, a lot of women sta Well written and accurate.

    Despair This was a good book written by Dana Alden and I enjoyed reading it. A young woman, a mountain man, a pack of mules, a long trip, attacked, going off on different route, finding out they're after you, loving the beautiful scenery, falling in love, finding out bad news, checking out the truth, a dying brother, kidnapped, threaten, will there be a happy ever after? I would recommend this book to everyone who enjoys reading a good book. Buy the book and see what happens.

    Mountain Men Of Montana book number of Montana book number one I chose this rating because of the spell binding story , I loved the way that Cal was cast as a mountain man and he acted like it by giving away that he had mining, and farming as well! Amanda was such a brave sole to take such trip alone!

    Enjoyed reading this book I really enjoyed the writing style of this author. The book moved along at a good pace with just the right amount of dialogue, action and the characters inner thoughts. Amanda was determined to reach her step-brother and begin a new life. There's a great twist near the end that I won't reveal and spoil your fun.

    Bumpy ride Cute story but a little syrupy at bits. Not very smooth presentation. Felt a little “see Jane run” at times. Loved that it was unencumbered by unnecessary sex scenes, but is anyone truly ever that dewy eyed and naive? The timeline was a bit unrealistic, which lends one to think not much research went into this “historic” novel.

    A clean easy to read in one sitting story with great characters set in old west Montana. Beautiful scenery. A nice story line, unfolding in a somewhat unrealistic time line but an enjoyable read nonetheless. An average happily ever after romance but found it enough entertainment for me to read the follow up story.

    Good story! Way they got together was unique! Think the good times after bad Guy was killed should have been elaborated. Westerns are all concise and do not elaborate on personal activities! Nice try!!
