A sweet, clean romance series!

Wild Montana Sky Series ebook

The characters in Wild Montana Sky came alive for me. It was a pleasure reading about a 19th century heroine who behaved like a real woman of her time, with strong emotions and physical reactions but no inappropriate sexual involvements. Not only did I care deeply about Elizabeth, but Nick also felt three-dimensional, a real man as well as a hero.

Debra Holland has created a textured story with believable period details. From the start, I was caught up in Elizabeth's dilemma as her manipulative sister-in-law made her home unlivable. Her experiences in traveling to Montana and adapting to an entirely different way of life made for an engrossing read. And the author maintained the suspense, both about the relationship and about a seriously ill child, right to the end.

Fans of traditional romances as well as Little Women and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman will enjoy this book.

    I recently took a break from contemporary romances, mysteries and thrillers to read Wild Montana Sky and thoroughly enjoyed this departure from my usual reading preferences. Debra Holland does a wonderful job with this sweet historical and its story of a "proper" city lady of good family who leaves her familiar world behind to, hopefully, find a new place to live and new love out West in Montana. Through her characters' eyes and minds, we experience Montana's awesome beauty and all-too-possible dangers. We can feel how different this is for Elizabeth and watch as she grows into the person she wants to be, instead of the one her society upbringing dictated. Ms. Holland has a deft skill at weaving in description of everything from the clothing of the time period to the vast scenery. We can see, hear, smell and feel what it must have been like for the characters.

    Although the story is "sweet" in that we don't see any lovemaking, the story is far from passionless. Attraction and yearning are all part of the relationships we see building throughout the book.

    I'm looking forward to reading more in the Montana Sky series!

  2. I have missed good, solid settling the West romances--like the sort written in the '80s and '90s, and was so delighted to find this wonderful romance by Debra Holland.

    Elizabeth is basically forced out of her brother's household when he marries a real witch of a woman, and so Elizabeth decides to move to Montana where her best friend lives with her husband and family. A handsome cowboy named Nick, who's been in love with Elizabeth's picture for years, is her traveling companion...but when Elizbeth gets to Montana, she has the surprise of her life when she meets a well-dressed man.

    A wonderful story. If you loved Little House on the Prairie and the Wagons West series, as well as the early Linda Lael Miller and Susan Wiggs books, you'll enjoy Wild Montana Sky and, I'm sure, its sequel, Starry Montana Sky.

  4. Wild Montana Sky is a great historical romance! It is a CLEAN romance book which may be why some people feel it is for younger adults, but it can really be enjoyed by all ages. There was enough depth in the characters that graphic love scenes were not needed to keep my interest in the story. I read it rather quickly and promptly bought the 2nd book of the series, Starry Montana Sky. It is also a great read and can't wait for the 3rd book to become available.

  5. I thoroughly enjoyed Debra Holland's novel Wild Montana Sky. Ms. Holland's vivid details of settings and characters allowed me to conjure movie like images of Boston and Montana. As we watch the lead character Elizabeth transition both in location and life circumstances, we do see such changes in her heart, mind, and attitude. Ms. Holland's deep knowledge of the time period broadened my enjoyment of this book. The authentic settings, dress, decor, dilemmas, all added to the wholeness. I AM NOT usually a romantic novel type, but my love of Montana led this Boston girl to purchase the Ebook. I am so glad I did. looking forward to more!

  6. Wild Montana Sky is an old fashioned, heart-felt historical romance. Elizabeth must make some tough choices throughout her journey. I find myself thinking of these characters long after finishing the book. Debra Holland makes you believe in second chances!

    Wild Montana Sky is a wonderful read--full of love, hope, challenge and danger. A fascinating mix of proper city girl falling for rough around the edges cowboy. I felt Elisabeth's trepidation as she ventured to a new land where grizzly bears and berry picking in the sun replace her former pampered, all-too-lady-like hollow existence. It kept me smiling all the way to the end!

  8. It's so nice to read a book that is fresh, well-written, and clean enough I can share it with my mom without embarrassment. The characters are vivid and three-dimensional, and I found myself falling just a little in love with Nick. I only wished the rest of the world could have left me alone for a few hours so I could have finished it in one sitting. Just might have to go back and read it again to see what I might have missed. :)

    Like so many people, I grew up on Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie series, and I've been hungering for more ever since. There's something very special about that era, when every day was a struggle or an adventure. Debra Holland's Wild Montana Sky (The Montana Sky Series) brought it all back to me, and more, with a wonderful romance infused into the wild spacious Montana Big Sky country. I book I just can't forget. And don't forget to check out her sequel Starry Montana Sky (Montana Sky Series). I'm reading it now. The horses are special.
