Redemption’s Edge, book one of the Redemption Mountain historical western romance series
Dax Pelletier is ready to start a new life, far away from the one he left behind in Savannah following the South’s devastating defeat in the Civil War. The ex-Confederate general wants nothing more to do with commanding men and confronting the tough truths of leadership.
Rachel Davenport possesses skills unlike those of her Boston socialite peers - skills acquired while working as a nurse in field hospitals during the Civil War. Eschewing her northeastern suitors and forever changed by the violence and death she’s seen, Rachel decides to accept her uncle’s invitation to assist him at his clinic in the wild frontier of Montana.
Now a Texas Ranger, a promise made to a friend takes Dax and his brother, Luke, to the untamed territory of Montana. He’ll fulfill his oath and return to Austin.
The small town of Splendor is exactly what Rachel needs after life in a large city. She’s grown to love the people as well as the majestic beauty of the sprawling frontier wilderness.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written Civil War era book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great Civil War era movie, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

Rachel Davenport of Boston had served as a nurse during the Civil War. She had never wanted to fit into the comfortable existence a well-kept wife would have. The wealth her family had turned into a gilded cage after her experiences as a nurse. Instead of settling down and finding a husband, Rachel left home and headed for Montana Territory where her Uncle had settled as a doctor. She was going out West to be of service to him and possibly still find a home and husband there. She wanted to be needed.
Dax Pelletier had left Savannah to join the Confederate Army. He thought he was leaving his brother Luke in charge of the family shipping fleet and home. However, Luke took it upon himself to follow his brother. Now, luckily both had returned home only to find the city devastated and the family gone. Now he was once again leaving, this time for Texas. Again, Luke took it upon himself to go as well. They left their warehouse and shipping in charge of their family servants with the stipulation that they would eventually buy the business by their keeping the business alive. Dax and Luke headed for Texas and eventually to Montana Territory. What would they find here? Would they return to Savannah or Texas? Would they find the peace they looked for?

A journey from Texas to Montana by horseback is quite something. I am very surprised at someone who had a huge ranch in Montana, that needed working, then leaving it to work so very far away in Texas as a Texas Ranger. That stretched my belief.
Dax & Luke Pelletier fought for the South during the American Civil War. From a rich & successful family, they leave their ruined family home in Savannah & become Texas Rangers. When their friend & mentor is killed while chasing a gang of bank robbers, the brothers take his body back to his ranch just outside Splendor, Montana, to be buried, & are shocked to learn they have inherited Pat Hanes’ successful ranch. While Luke is keen to settle down & make a success of it, Dax is unsure: he does not want to lead men & hold the responsibility of others’ lives. To him, Splendor is just a temporary stop: he will travel back to Texas & take up his job as a ranger again.
Rachel Davenport is a socialite from Boston, who trained & volunteered as a nurse during the war. Keen to live an independent life & continue working, she accepts her uncle Charles’ invitation to travel to Splendor to assist him at his clinic. Although she’s keen to marry, & despite the abundance of men in the area, she has yet to find a man whom she’s attracted to.
All this changes when Dax brings a fevered Luke to the clinic. The two of them are instantly attracted to each other, but with the Pelletier’s biggest rival, King Tolbert, courting Rachel, the Hanes Ranch being targeted, outlaws after the brothers & Dax’s insistence that he’s not staying, will the two of them get together?
Although there’s a lot going on in this story, which made it a fast-paced read, I did not like Dax with his constant indecision about Rachel & Splendor. It wasn’t fair of him to lead her on & run his knuckles down her cheek & kiss her senseless! However, I really liked Rachel who was brave & sensible, & non judgemental towards others. I liked how she decided to take things into her own hands & advertise for a mail order groom! Although possibly not the most sensible & wise thing to announce that she’s a nurse - the only nurse in that area...
This book has a happy ever after, & the characters feature in the next book(s) so definitely should be read as part of the series. As another reviewer said, it does end in a cliffhanger, but it affects Splendor & not a particular character or characters. There are a few loose ends in this book, so I’m assuming these will be tied in future books. Overall, I would like recommend this book if you enjoy clean, historical, western or romances. I’m off to read up more about the series...
Unlike so many self-published books, the author has clearly taken her time to ensure she has produced a high quality product that has been very well edited and to a professional standard and well researched.
This captivating story takes you on the ultimate journey, with well-developed and likeable characters and beautifully depicted settings. The pace is free-flowing, and the tone is crisp, but best of all, the story that is utterly magical and will capture your heart.
I would highly and whole-heartedly recommend this book- you will not be disappointed!
Historically interesting, some good characters, but the constant hunting down of the bad guys and the will he stay or will he go? Theme gradually eroded my interest.
Hope you enjoy it, not for me.
