Delilah Wickes-Barnes has no intention of getting involved with any man, much less the handsome newcomer who once courted her sister, albeit briefly. However, fate (or more accurately, her mother...) has other plans. No matter how hard they try to avoid each other, they can’t seem to stop finding themselves alone together. And when they are tasked with saving the Christmas play how can Del say no? It's for the children, after all.
A rush of newcomers hope to settle in the unique town of Gold Sky, Montana and Elliot Meyers is no exception. Prosperous and accepting, it's exactly the place an industrious man with a mission can build his future and find some peace. That is, until Delilah walks into his life and turns everything upside down with her haughty glances and refusal to give him the time of day. But the more time they spend together the more determined Elliot is to make Del see that their fiery arguments can turn to something even more explosive.
Visit historic Gold Sky for another dose of out-sized HEAs and joyful frontier living, where diversity reigns supreme.
Pride and Passion is another cute addition to this diverse western romance series. This time we’re following Delilah Wickes-Barnes as her mother not-so-subtly tries to play matchmaker with newcomer Elliot Meyers. Delilah had a bit of a crush on the man, but kept it to herself since he originally went after her sister. But that crush is crushed when she agrees to her mom’s plot to bring him dinner and finds him with another woman! Not to mention that he wasn’t exactly polite and they wind up trading insults. Clearly, this one has a dose of hate-to-love.
While I did enjoy Pride and Passion overall, and I’m always eager to read more about Gold Sky, I didn’t love it. I enjoyed seeing Delilah get out of her head and into love, but Elliot has no personality. It could be because Pride and Passion is told entirely from Delilah’s POV, or he really was just…there. He could have been swapped out for anyone and the story would have been the same. It was still an adorable tale of saving Christmas (and a puppy!) and finding true love at the holidays.
