Rocky Mountain Promise by Misty M. Beller: Book Review

 Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Lorelei Collins possesses a soft heart for any animal in need, so when she finds a buffalo calf bawling beside its lifeless mother, she can't help but bring it home to raise on the ranch she and her sisters are building in the Rocky Mountain wilderness. Little does she realize that its white coloring is rare and considered sacred by Native Americans, which makes it highly valuable to them and European trappers alike. Men soon begin to visit their ranch to regard the marvel, with some trying to woo Lorelei into marriage and others trying to steal the calf outright.

When the men's advances become more sinister, Lorelei approaches Tanner Mason, the quiet and mysterious owner of the new trading post, with an idea: she and the calf will move to his post, along with her family's trusted Blackfoot friend. This will solve both their problems by bringing customers to his trade room and protecting her family from the trouble brought on by so many strangers. Yet as the danger travels with her, Lorelei and Tanner are faced with a threat greater than anything they're prepared for--one that will test the limits of their abilities and the love growing between them.

Rocky Mountain Promise is the second book in the Sisters of the Rockies series. While the sisters are introduced in book one, this could definitely be enjoyed as a standalone too. 

Misty M. Beller is a wonderful storyteller, and this book is truly an example of that! Who would have thought that a story that centers largely around a little white buffalo calf named Curly could capture my attention so well? And yet, it did just that. I really enjoyed this beautifully told story. The characters were well written and drew me into their lives pretty quickly. I sometimes struggle with getting into historical reads that are set in this time frame, but I found that the unique premise of the story, the hints of danger, the romance... and of course, Curly himself all drew me in and kept me invested in how everything would turn out. The messages of faith were woven beautifully into the story and it all just worked together very well. 

If you enjoy historical fiction, this is one worth checking out.
