Book Review-Vigilante's Bride

Title: Vigilante's Bride
Author: Yvonne Harris
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers
Genre: Historical/Romance Fiction
Emily is kicked out of the orphanage because she is too old. Now she is forced to become a mail-order-bride. She is  on her way to marry a man named Bart Axel who is a complete stranger. Little does she know that she is about to enter into a journey of a lifetime.

Luke Sullivan is a"good" man. He does not lie or steal. He makes sure no one gets away from the punishments they deserve. While witnessing a man's just death, memories of his past begin to haunt him. Luke is now trying to get even with Bart, the man that ruined his father and family. He holds his nemesis' stagecoach and robs the money that is rightfully his, or rather technically his fathers. He also kidnaps his enemy's bride-to-be. How can once "good" man Luke reduce to this? He believes he is doing the right thing taking back his money and saving poor Emily from marrying that scoundrel, Bart Axel.
Journey with Luke as he fights the bad guys, encounters Indians, learns to forgive, falls in love, and most importantly he learns to surrender his life over to Jesus.

This was a great book! I really enjoyed Harris' story plot. She made the book sad, funny, suspenseful, and still very Christ centered.

I would highly recommend this to all those who enjoy a good read. This is not a book where you have to guess who the bad guy is, but his schemes will keep you in suspense. This book does contain some violence and romance but nothing graphic.

I got this book as a free E-book at CBD Free.   You can purchase a paperback copy at  CBD or Amazon.
