Bride Train Series by Reece Butler (Books 1 & 2)

Barefoot Bride for Three by Reece Butler

Taking place in the 1870s, Beth comes west on the Bride Train to escape a fiancé she has no desire to marry and hoping to open up her own business.  But fate has different plans for her, and she ends up marrying Trace at the demand of the sheriff or else she will end up marrying the town bully.    barefoot bride

Once her and Trace head out of town, she learns that married life is going to be something quite different than what she imagined.  Trace lives in a cabin with his two brothers, and they share everything, and that includes her.

The story goes through the reaction she has when she learns what the reality of her situation is going to be as well as how she handles it.

My opinion:

If you want a book that is steamy but with a good storyline, this is definitely a book to consider reading.

Points to recommend the book:

  • The situation is handled well and the men are all about Beth’s pleasure.  Nothing happens that she does not want to happen
  • There are secondary characters which are interesting and may have their own story (this is first in a series)

A Contract Bride’s Triple Surprise by Reece Butler

Amelia rides the Bride Train west at the request of her sister and having signed a marriage contract to her sister’s brother in law.  Sister Prudence has never had good health and she knows that she will not last long once having her baby, and wants her sister to raise her.   But when Amelia arrives, she finds out that the brother she thinks she is married is not the one she married.  Prudence’s husband has forged the documents so she is married to the elder brother who needs an heir to hold onto the family estate.   contract bride

Amelia knows a bit about sex, and her sister has told her that these brothers share, just like their neighbours the Elliot’s (from book one) and if she has any questions to talk to Beth.  Prudence’s letter implores Amelia to also help her husband to quit grieving for her and to continue on with his life.   Amelia struggles with many issues but in discussion with Beth and due to her husband’s devious plans, she accepts what has been requested of her.

My opinion:

This book is not quite as steamy as the first book, but there are still many sex scenes for those that want them.  The storyline is also quite believable.

Points to recommend the book:

  • We get to see how Beth and her family are faring for those that got attached to them
  • There is discussion about how different races are treated, as Ross is not Scottish like his brother
