Mary Connealy’s books are always entertaining and fun, and Marshaling Her Heart is no exception. Although it is the concluding book in her Wyoming Sunrise series, it can easily be read alone. However, characters from the previous two books make appearances in this one, which is one reason you might want to read them in order. I enjoyed seeing what the other characters had been up to.
This story stars rancher Becky Pruitt and former U.S. Marshal Nate Paxton who is now working as Becky’s foreman. When a group of Marshals ask to use Becky’s ranch as a base while they hunt the Deadeye bandits who have been terrorizing the area, she reluctantly agrees. I loved seeing the relationship between Becky and Nate grow and change as they spent time together in pursuit of the bandits.
Connealy’s signature wit and humor shine once again in this engaging tale. With lots of action, suspense, adventure, and a good dose of romance, this book is sure to delight those who enjoy historical romantic fiction.

Marshaling Her Heart (Wyoming Sunrise Book #3): Book 3 (A Historical Western Romance Series with Powerful Female Characters)
Will their lives and romance survive the trouble coming their way?
Becky Pruitt has always prided herself on knowing everything that's happening on her successful ranch, so an unexpected admission from her foreman, Nate Paxton, comes as quite a surprise. With the notorious Deadeye Gang on the loose, Nate--a former U.S. Marshal--believes Becky's ranch is the best spot for a group of Marshals to use as a base to hunt them down.
The timing couldn't be more crucial for the town of Pine Valley, and Becky feels obligated to help. But after escaping the grasp of her harsh father, she's never liked giving up control, of her life or her ranch. If there's anyone she can trust with her ranch, and her heart, it might be Nate. But the outlaws won't go away quietly, and as danger draws ever nearer, Becky and Nate are faced with impossible choices that will test their growing bond.
