The Major's Daughter (Fort Reno #3) by Regina Jennings

The Major's Daughter (Fort Reno, #3)ABOUT THE BOOK

Caroline Adams returns to Indian Territory craving adventure after tiring of society life. When she comes across swaggering outlaw Frisco Smith, his dreams to obtain a piece of property on the Unassigned Lands are very persuasive. When the gun sounds, they find themselves battling over a claim--and both dig in their heels.


This is the third book in The Fort Reno Series and what a book it is! There are romantic moments that took my breath away; funny, loud-out moments that had me wiping tears from laughter and heart-tugging moments that caused emotional tears; and a description of the 1889 Land Run that wowed me with its historical accuracy. The Major's Daughter is Caroline Adams, a a twenty-one year old young lady ready to spread her wings  and how better to do that than by taking advantage of the free land that is suddenly there for the taking? What Caroline doesn't count on is that her newly claimed land may also be wanted by someone else.  Caroline says that it's hers but a man named Franco Smith has already unofficially lay claim to it. This is when the fun and romance begin---Caroline just happens to know Franco Smith and they just happen to have shared a past!

I can always count on Regina Jennings to give me a story that entertains as it inspires and I always learn something new about the time and setting in the stories that she shares. I was familiar with the Land Run but I'd never considered how these many people, from all walks of life, were suddenly thrown together as they began a new life in this unknown territory. In the notes in the back, author Jennings shares the true historical facts about this exciting era and I enjoyed seeing how she incorporated these facts into her story. There were strict rules to becoming a claim holder and, as with many of Jenning's novels, the villians weren't playing by the rules!

Caroline is determined to prove herself capable of living on her own and Franco yearns to be part of a family. Caroline has always been accepted socially and Franco has been a loner and an outcast. Can two people so different ever find common ground together?

If you enjoy western themes and historical fiction mixed with clean romance, you will want to read The Major's Daughter.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and publisher but a favorable review was not required. These are my own opinions.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
