(Please note that this is the spicy version of Eden: The Dangerous Bride)
Luke Chance has always been considered the life of the party, the bad boy troublemaker, known more for his winning smile and entertaining exploits than his character. But in his heart, Luke knows it’s time to be a man. While others laugh at his antics, he longs for respect and the chance to prove he can be a leader. The first step toward becoming a leader is to send for a mail-order bride from Hurst Home…
Eden Gardner is more than ready to leave her shady past and her even shadier family behind for a normal life. She may be bold as brass, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t long for safety, peace, and a husband to love and protect her. Luke seems like the answer to her prayers from the moment she steps of the train in Haskell, Wyoming…
But the past has a way of catching up with those who try to run from it, and Eden’s brothers are no exception. Just when Luke is finally given the chance to prove himself, a far greater challenge will test his strength and his newfound love.

We met Luke Chance in the Hot on the Trail series. In that series, he was just teen with a penchant for trouble. Now, it’s years later and he’s a grown man, but people haven’t ever given him a chance to show that he’s no longer that troublemaker teen and that he really has grown up and can be responsible. So, he asked his adoptive Mom and her friends to send for a bride like Franklin’s Corva. (His Perfect Bride, book 1 of this series.) Who is sent is Eden. She’s nothing like Corva, but then, Luke is nothing like Franklin. And this is just the beginning for them…
I really loved this story. I liked the kid, Luke. He needed some guidance, but he wasn’t a bad kid. And in this book, Eden is exactly what he needs. This book is so much more than a simple romance though. Eden’s faith in him, inspires him to be the man she sees in him. It helps him to step up into the shoes he’s been trying to step into for so long. I won’t say she made a man out of him, she helped him to see the man he already was. And in doing so, helped everyone else see it too. On top of that, there is a role reversal here that I won’t spell out, but I will say was BEYOND refreshing! I LOVED it, and I’m so GLAD that it has finally been addressed. (At least as far as I’ve read!) And we know that Cody is next, he’s already let us know. So, I can’t wait to see just how this works out for him. 🙂
Ms. Farmer’s series keeps fresh. I don’t know how she keeps so many ideas without rehashing the same thing over and again, but she does. I really do love the environments and the situations she puts her characters through. I’ll be honest, I flew through this book. It was such a joy to read, I was almost finished before I knew it. I love books like that. So would I recommend this book? Yes! BUY IT! Trust me!
