The Brothers of Belle Fourche is a novella series set in pioneer South Dakota. 


Arnold’s first love died in the Cheyenne river.
He’s sure he’s had his one love. To guard his heart, he wants nothing to do with women. No one could ever compare to his Lynellen. He will work hard, be respectful, never forget.

Stephenia is the new teacher in Belle Fourche when she almost meets her Maker.
Arnold saved her life, and maybe her heart. She’s avoided relationships her whole life, afraid of the pain of loss. When she finally gives up on him, he has to choose between the love he’s lost and the one who found him.

My Thoughts:

After a daring rescue by a handsome cowboy, new teacher Stephenia Forde falls head over heals for Arnold Oleson. However, he’s still hung up on a lost childhood crush and his fears of loss. Will Stephenia’s tender pursuit warm it’s way past his fears or will Arnold’s wall of control keep him locked away from finding freedom in love?

This fun, engaging story is sure to keep you turning pages to find out what happens next! With delightful characters, a wonderful setting, a plot-line that keeps you guessing, and just the right amount of romance, this is a story that you are sure to enjoy.

I enjoyed spending time in the small western town of Belle Fourche and I’m looking forward to reading Eli’s story!
