Paradise Point, Book Eighteen, Redemption Mountain Historical Western Romance Series
Bram MacLaren is a man with a goal. Build a ranch in western Montana and expand the MacLaren name. Inking a partnership with the wealthy Pelletier brothers, there’s nothing to stand in the way of the dedicated, hardworking rancher. Except the obnoxious and willful young woman intent on becoming the best wrangler in the western territory.
Selina Rinehart doesn’t care about the odds. Becoming the equal of the men who run the horse breeding program at Redemption’s Edge is what drives her. If others see her as cantankerous and selfish, well, so be it. Nothing will stop her from reaching her goal—except perhaps the Pelletiers’ sanctimonious new partner.
Keeping their distance seems the best solution, until Dax asks Bram to takeover Selina’s training.
The two butting heads amid their growing attraction isn’t all that creates tension on the ranch. Someone’s been abducting people off the streets of Splendor, as well as from a neighboring ranch. Adding to the danger, a series of earthquakes rocks the town and surrounding ranches, including Redemption’s Edge.

Bucking Against Convention
There was plenty of action in this historical western romance with a shootout and repeated kidnappings and earthquakes. I wouldn’t have taken off on my own wary of mother nature and some unknown person or persons who was going around randomly grabbing people. Central in the story was the relationship between Selina and Bram. She wants to be a great wrangler like him and resents that he’s taken that potential job away from her. She is stubborn, headstrong, and quick to anger. She was told she couldn’t go on a wild horse drive with Bram and some of the other men, but she decides to follow them not thinking that her family will worry she’s been kidnapped and about the potential dangers that await them on the trail. Bram reins her in, but also encourages her work with the wild horses. In a way she was like those horses bucking against conventional roles and fighting anyone who tried to control her.
Just finished my ARC of Paradise Point which I couldn’t put down. As always loved the story and the characters introduced in this story and past books. This book is the start of joining two families the Pelletier and McLaren. Thank you Shirleen Davis for the ARC and a great five star story.
