Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-10?A historical romance series that focuses on eight young women who travel to a muddy, gold-mining town in California in search of a new and better life. Shelby (a.k.a. Savannah) is running from a stranger she was forced into marrying, and Eden is hiding a criminal background. These two 17-year-olds head for Last Chance as potential brides to unknown miners, and eagerly look forward to the adventures they will encounter in the wilds of the frontier. Savannah finds her destiny in the arms of the youngest son of the owner of the Bullock Gold Mine; Eden is a beautiful card shark whose past threatens to pull apart her newfound love for Josiah Bullock, the oldest son of the richest family in town. Both of these novels transport readers away from contemporary romance series like " Sweet Valley High," "Sweet Dreams" (both Bantam), and "First Love" (Troll) to offer young romantics entry into days of yore. Watson takes them on a fiercely paced ride with people, places, and events covering each story like a wool shawl on a wintry evening.?Jana R. Fine, Clearwater Public Library System, FL

A young woman on her own in the not so urban area of wildcat county. Living a life of gambling, gossip, and scandal. Taking a risk, getting her self into trouble, and adventure. But not minding much of any thing at all. Untill she falls in love with one of the riches men in town. But who can this man be? After all, every man would love to court the scandalous Eden Moran. I love the book it's Romantic, Adventurous, Intriguing, Exciting, and of course. . . SCANDALOUS!

Eden Moran has the attention of a lot of the men in Last Chance,California, much to her pleasure. She's used to men falling all over themselves until she meets up with Josiah Bullock. But wouldn't you know, the one man that treats her the worst for most of the story is the man she loves and he loves her back. This girl can take care of herself and I reccomend this book to anyone who's interested in historical romance.

Format: Paperback
The plot was fascinating, kind of like the picture brides of the past. Fierce women are shipped to a town, believing it's a large city, only to find it be be out in the middle of nowhere. Females will love these romances, adults may also. Very graphic at times, but nothing raunchy.
If you're going to read this, you need to read all the books in the series. One is not complete without the others.

Scandalous! Aug. 19 2008
By Dr RD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am mostly upset that the Brides of Wildcat County series aren't available anywhere except online sellers. I read all the books my library had and loved them but I wanted to buy them for myself. I wish they would come back into print.
In this book I thought it was quite steamy... but nothing too inappropriate for a young teen girl. The kisses were just very well written! But overall I love the series!
