Leigh Greenwood's Seven Brides Series captivated me with 'Rose', the first book of the series. I am an avid Western Historical Fiction reader, so the concept of this series intriged me. Boy did Leigh Greenwood deliver! Rose, is hired as a cook/housekeeper to the seven rough, rowdy and untamed Randolph brothers. The two oldest brothers have just returned to their Texas cattle ranch after the end of the Civil War to find that their father has died in the war, their mother died of grief, and their brother Madison has left the four youngest brothers to fend for themselves. The brothers are a hot mess! The oldest brother George, thinks he is hiring a housekeeper to clean it up, but he finds that only the love and care of this brave woman named Rose can save them and keep them together. In the process, George and Rose find everlasting love in each other.
