Description

The Express took men and rode them hard across the West. That adventuring spirit belonged to men full of life, ready for whatever met them on the trail, everything, except for love.

Ransom McCain was the last man hired to ride for the Three Rivers station, but he was chosen to take the first ride west because he could think on his feet. Tensions are high because there are people determined to make the express fail, and little does Ransom know that he would fall for a woman caught in the crossfire.

Delia Burroughs is a young woman with plenty of heart and the strength of spirit to help her family survive in the West. But one by one they’ve left until it’s just Delia and her father. His grief and struggles may make it impossible for her to leave and make a family of her own. When she met Ransom, she knew she’d found a man she could love, but forces are determined to take her new home from her and perhaps her chance at real love.

Ransom and Delia will have to decide if what’s happening between them is something they want to fight for, or will they let themselves be pulled apart by the danger they’re both facing.

*”The Three Rivers Express Series is a set of Sweet Western Historical Romance which will be written alternately by Reina Torres and Nan O’Berry.

Feel the danger, the breeze on your face, hear the horse hooves, as they ride by fast and hard to get to the next relay station with the mail delivery and escape the danger that nay await around the next bend. Very exciting read! !

“Always, Ransom”, features Ransom McCain, and Delia Burroughs, her father owns the Burroughs station. She is spirited, courageous, brave and beautiful. She is strong enough and determined enough to help her family survive in the West. But one by one her brothers leave to go eleswhere, and persue their own lives and dreams, leaving only Delia and her father to attend to the relay station and keep it running. Her father’s struggles and grief, is made worse by all his crew having been run off. This will make it near impossible for Delia to leave and make a family of her own. She must stay and help her father, succeed.
Ransom, is the last man hired to ride for the Three Rivers station, since all the others either were killed or scared off. Ransom was chosen to be the first man to ride west because he could think fast on his feet, and had an adventureous spirit, he’s also alone in the world. Tensions are running high, some does not wish for the Express to make it through, they wish it to fail, for their own selfish reasons.

Steady paced, well written with well rounded and engaging characters. I love reading about the early days of the Pony Express rider and the relay stations. The plot was fasticating and intriguing.
From the first page I could not put this amazing story down, it was a spellbinding and quick read, only approximately 177 pages, packed full of a sweet romance, danger, some intrigue, and suspense. I read “Always, Ransom” in one setting.

This sweet, heartwarming story will keep you turning pages as Ransom and Delia figure out the attraction between them and if they are willing to risk what they’ve found, as the danger that surrounds them tries to pull them apart. Will they risk theit possible HEA and their love? Will their love be strong enough to prevent the nefarious things that are happening from destroying what they’ve found and the life they both wish?

There are NO cliffhanger, per se, this is a continuous story, however. Book 2 is to be released soon, “Summer 1860 – “Always, Clay” by: Nan O’Berry”. I can’t wait to see what is next for the “Three Rivers Express” riders and the relay station.

Think of the T.V. shows, “Larmine”, or “Young Riders”, yes, telling you my age. These shows are probably before most of your time, but I still watch them today, re-runs, of course.

*Note: this is a sweet romance, it does have a few curses words, nothing we all don’t hear often, such as “d**mn, he*l etc, they are not vulgar words. There is NO sensual interaction, only kissing.*

A most enjoyable and very satisfying read. Bravo, Reina Torres!! A definite must read for fans of Sweet Romance, Western Historical, Pony Express early days and the brave riders. Powerful and compelling read, “Always, Ransom”!!

Rating: 4.5
