4 Stars from SOS Aloha Book Blog:
"Carson delivers a no-holds-barred romantic suspense...She created a multi-dimensional world, ranging from the bandits hiding in the foothills, to the Marshalls tracking their movements, to the bullying tactics in land grabs, and to the train ride where Ruth finds the courage to break free. The transition is seamless as the plot moves from one scene to the other, waiting for the collision of the characters to a satisfactory ending. UNTAMED JOURNEY is Carson's debut ... and she has a long career ahead of her. Recommended read for those who enjoy historical Westerns with true grit."
4 Stars from Night Owl Reviews:
"This is a sweetly sensual story that gradually unfolds to give a glimpse of the hardships and complications of surviving in the relatively untamed West...an enjoyable read."
Orphaned by the Civil War and sold to the highest bidder by her last living relative, Ruth Jameson boards a train to untamed Colorado Territory to meet her new 'husband' - a man twice her age, pursuing money and power from the wrong side of the law. When the man sent to protect Ruth on her journey West turns out to be her biggest threat, Ruth decides to change her fate and sets off into a wild, unknown land to carve a place for herself.
Hired by the Union Pacific to protect their passengers from a rash of armed robberies, Marshal Beauregard Jackson dreams of hanging up his star and devoting himself to ranching and re-building the life and family he lost.
When fate crosses their paths, Jackson's dream takes physical form in Ruth, the bravest woman he has ever met. At first, he just wants to protect her. But that desire quickly turns to one more powerful, passionate, and personal. He will go to any lengths to make her his wife and embark on their own untamed journey of love, loyalty, and longing fulfilled.
Untamed Journey is a classic romance filled with fast-paced action. It's sexy, romantic, and fun with a guaranteed happy ending.
