    I read, skimmed and skidded to 35% and I have to DNF. I can not continue with this. The female main character is TSTL in such a monumental fashion that it was painful to read. I don't care if it is on purpose and if she would have turned into Superwoman in the last three chapters. Nobody can be this ignorant. Squeeze eggs out of a chicken? Give me a break. And I can't develop any sympathies for a character that willfully lies and deceives and is stupid enough to think that she will get away with [...]

    I think this one's dead in the water. The combination of the surly "half-breed" Indian hero and the big to-do about how pale the heroine's skin is is just too racist for me. Sometimes I'll compartmentalize problematic themes and enjoy the work anyway - like I do with misogynist rap lyrics - but nothing about the story is so compelling that I'd feel moved to march on. DNF.

    Horrid heroine.She started off so perfectly, I absolutely adored her. Then it all started with the little white lies about her being able to cook, when she couldn't, and then it just went downhill from there. I hate deception, especially when it's the heroines doing the deceiving. And she also hid a major part of her life from him.I also hated how she just swats him away when he wants her, like WTH. Rolling over, her back to his face on the bed, saying 'I'm tired, I'm off to sleep now'?UGH OMG. [...]

    I picked this book up as a Kindle freebie. I am certainly glad that i did because it was a great read. I love books that combine humor with the romance. This book gave me humor in spades. Particularly funny was the barn scene where Lacey is coaxing the cow to fill her pail with milk & trying to squeeze the eggs from the rooster. Hilarious!! The author gives us a myriad of emotions in this book. The heroine has lived most of her life in a hospital for the insane. It was mistakenly assumed tha [...]

    I can't really explain what it was that made me not love this book. There were elements that should have made me like it more but something kept me from it. I guess there wasn't enough going on to keep me from getting bored. It wasn't a terrible book but it just didn't have those certain ingredients that grab you and hold you hostage til the last page.

    This is the first book that I've read by Sharon Ihle and I really liked her writting style, I loved Lacey (h) and the whole fish out of water theme. Being raised in a hospital for the mentaly insaine she was completely out of her element on a ranch. There was some great LOL moments in the barn when Lacey was trying to comeplete some chores. Hawke (H) was also a very likeable character. He had so much patience with Lacey that it was a nice change from the books that I have been reading.lol He did [...]

    I was attracted to the premise of the book because it had a fish-out-of-water element to it with the heroine trying to transition from life in an Irish hospital to a life as rancher's wife in Wyoming. That part was done well and had some funny scenes as she grapples to learn simple tasks like milking a cow or cooking breakfast. I wish I had enjoyed the romance aspects more, though. It was a bit lackluster and predictable. There was nothing special about either Hawke or Lacey that raised it above [...]

    Despite the tacky dialogue and in some cases bad editing, I really enjoyed this book. I loved the broken characters and how there romance developed. It was a gentle love story with surprisingly tame sex scenes but that actually fit well with the whole book.Even though the writing wasn't at the usual standard I read, something drew me to this book and I couldn't put it down. I will be continuing the series as this book surprised and entertained me.

    I really enjoyed this book. There were many funny parts. I had a lil trouble with the end I thought the author rushed the ending. However, I was happy with the ending none the less. Over all it was entertaining and an easy read definitely give it a try . I downloaded it free off of amazon.Happy Reading :)

    This is my type of Western Historical Romance. The unwanted Mail order bride, the reluctant misfit hero, beautiful setting & everyday ranch life in an isolated place, where the story is about the main characters. However, in spite of the regular setting the premise was different as the Heroine Kathleen Lacey was in a mental institution for women for most of her life & suffers from Spells, in other words PTSD. I loved the heroine she was a sweet, innocent, vulnerable but also stubborn, he [...]

    This mail order bride romance would have been hilarious, if it weren't for the tragic undertones of the book. Lacey knows that she has no future in Ireland and persuades her nurse and friend Kate to smuggle her out of the institution when she receives an offer of marriage from a rancher in America, with an additional request to bring a friend along as a bride for his neighbour. Aspects of this book were so funny that I laughed out loud, but others were beyond sad. I enjoyed Lacey's naivete and h [...]

    Lacey's parents were killed in a tragic fire when she was 7. She spent the next 13 years in a hospital for women. Then she was presented with an amazing opportunity to live a normal life as a mail-order bride and accompanied nurse Kate to America. But Lacey was totally unprepared to cope with life outside the hospital especially in frontier Wyoming. Upon her arrival she found that Hawke, her intended had no idea he had requested a bride and furthermore did not want one. As Lacey Lacey works to c [...]

    This is an old western romance with a touch of humor and mystery. The heroine, Kathleen, has lived most of her life in a hospital. She went there initially due to having been burned in a fire that killed her parents. She has no one else to care for her. She also has "spells". The hero, Hawke, is a half-breed Indian in the west. Hawke's best friend has sent away for a mail-order bride. Hawk has been writing these letters for his friend. His friend, however, adds a postscript suggesting that if th [...]

    This is entertaining, sad, engrossing and amusing. Hawke is vulnerable, caring, sometimes thick headed and determined. Lacey is sweet, naive and vulnerable. Hawke doesn't want a wife, he thinks that no woman would have him, and he can't accept that Lacey might not see him as a half breed. Lacey knows no one will have her if they know that she grew up in an asylum, so she doesn't mention that fact to Hawke. Secrets that each keeps from the other threatens to tear the marriage apart, but when the [...]

    This book was humorous and s fun read. You automatically fell in love with the characters and knew that the heroine would make the hero fall in love with her because she wasn't perfect but she was loving and passionate. Every time she burnt something or things came out wrong. It made him laugh or smile and each time it would melt his heart just a little bit more.I recrive this book from eBooks discovery and this my honest review.

    "I received a complimentary copy of this book from eBook Discovery I voluntarily reviewed this is an honest review." I loved this book it made me laugh out loud with Lacey's & Johns romance it was so much fun watching their love grow! Two people from different worlds, with secrets and feelings of unworthiness find a one of kind love for each other, this book doesn't disappoint! Great book Sharon Ihle!!

    This book is an interesting read, i quite enjoyed it. Kathleen is a mail ordered bride who found out on getting there that she was not actually ordered by the man but by someone else for him, the man was reluctant to accept her and she had to convince him to. "I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review".

    IngeniousThis is a story of two more or less socially inept people growing into social aptness. The plot or path of this growth is ingenious and entertaining. I suggest taking the ride.

    Wonderful story, quite entertaining. Good flow, hard to put down.Wonderful story, this story brought out many different emotions while reading. The flow of the story was great, and hard to put down. Great storyteller and sure to read more of her writings.Highly

    RivetingI chose this book because I was intrigued by a western love story. Once I started reading I was unable to put it down. I read it in entirety in one setting. I was anxious to see what would happen next .

    Really really good!!Couldn't put it down. Loved Lacey & Hawke. Funny, sassy & made me cry some. Would recommend to anyone who like historical westerns

    A good book worth the time to readI like historical romances. This had a little bit different twist of characters. Lacey is Irish and Hawke, Arapahoe. Blindsided by her dearest friends' obvious plan and her "husband to be" Caleb who had advertised for a mail order bride, Lacey had insisted on traveling from Ireland to the west to see who was described as"a man who might need a bride too" in the letter she had read addressed to her friend Kate. Lacey wanted what Kate had; a new life with a husban [...]

    How do you know what you are capable of before you test your mettle with life events and traumatic suffering?Hawke and Miss Kathleen Lacey O'Carroll make a funny crossed star lovers, because one is a half breed Indian rancher in Wyoming and the other is from an insane asylum in Ireland. As it is often found in historical romance novels, she does have some mental/comportment issues as well as being an orphan but there are hint that she is a rich orphan and the institution was probably keeping her [...]

    I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review, and I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you! This book deserves so much more than 5 stars, and I am so glad to have had Ms. Ihle's extraordinary story telling introduced to me. She has constructed a story that is compelling and unforgettable, with characters that pull at your emotions bringing forth both joy and sadness. All characters, not just the main characters Hawke and Lacy, are well rounded with in [...]

    This is a sweet romance that begins in a women's home for the insane in Ireland. As Lacey and her long term caregiver find themselves as mail order brides for men on the Wyoming frontier they begin their long adventure to not only love, but to find themselves free of their past mistakes. Lacy, who has never lived outside the institution begins to find that the world is much more interesting and challenging than she could have imagined. When finally arriving in Wyoming she has to learn the necess [...]

    This was a sweet, warm, and often funny love story, about two flawed but lovable outcasts who were meant for each other. That both would have insecurities and fears of rejection that kept them from being open with their love for each other was written in a believable manner, and for me it worked. I enjoyed reading this book very much, but can't in all honesty give it 5 stars because of several contrived gimmicky elements, such as the silly spur stuff, that detracted from the warmth and humanity [...]

    After finding out that her friend Kate is going to America to be a mail-order bride for Caleb Weatherspoon, Lacey O'Carroll begs her to take her along. After all, Caleb's letter did say to bring along a friend to marry his neighbor.No one told John Winterhawke that his neighbor had requested a mail-order bride for him too. He was immediately suspicious of Lacey. There must be something wrong with her. Why would the beautiful Irishwoman want to marry a half-breed like him? Hawke decided to give h [...]

    I thought this was a sweet romance. The read is very enjoyable.Kathleen Lacey O'Carroll knew she faced an uncertain future when she arrived in Wyoming as a mail-order bride--especially when she learned that the man she was to marry hadn't actually ordered her. How could John Winterhawke, a fiercely independent and unsettlingly handsome half-Indian, possibly make room in his heart and in his life for her?As far as Hawke was concerned, the last thing he needed was a high-spirited, overeager Irish [...]

    Lacey and Hawke are the main characters in The Bride Wore Spurs. The author is Sharon Ihle and according to advertizing it is the first book in a series called the Inconvenient Bride Series. The book had all the elements of a good "fun" novel. Two characters with a hidden past that is not a big deal to the other one. Both are in love with each other but the other one doesn't know and there is always some big crisis that makes all the secrets come out! However, it is the people and humor in this [...]

    Not too bad of a romance novel.Girl is put in mental institution because she was considered "mad". Her nurse helped her to escape from Ireland and go to America as a mail order bride.Girl is skittish and not real worldly and has very few prejudices against people.Her husband is considered a "half-breed" and is not a willing participant in taking a bride. Eventually he decides to marry the gal, but does not realize she was considered "mad" in Ireland.Everything comes out in the end and all ends w [...]
