Description of Wild Horses, Wild Hearts

Eli Banks heads west into the foothills of the Rockies to search for wild horses, but when he hears a cry and encounters Clare McKay and her young brother in need of help, he strides headlong into danger. While he’d hoped to find wild horses, he finds something just as challenging—an Irish gal with a wild heart.

Wild Horses, Wild Hearts is the prequel to the Front Range series of sweet historical Western novels set in Colorado in the 1870s.

My review of Wild Horses, Wild Hearts

I liked this novella. It is set in one of my favorite time periods. The setting is in the foothills of the Rockie Mountains, so what is not to like there? The characters  were good and developed well. I think Clare McKay is going to give Eli Banks a run for his mioney.

As for the plot…it was paced well and was interesting.  I like horses so the idea of capturing wild horses and training them is facinating to me. I liked the mysterious Indian elements that were included. Kinda makes you wonder about Eli’s mother, what else will that woman see?

I will be checking out the rest of the series when it becomes available. I like Charlene Whitman’s story telling style and I the characters and setting enough to want to know more.

Give this one a try and let me know what you think.
