About the book: When Sarah Worley rejects Luke McNeil’s proposal to pursue property in the Oklahoma Territory land lottery in 1901, the ranch hand pulls up stakes and goes after her. But he’s the last person she wants to see. The land lottery gives Sarah the chance to realize her dream of independence and a home of her own. But with it comes challenges she never considered. When her dream becomes a nightmare, she must decide whether to stay on her land or give up and return to the life she left. Luke hopes that by winning a claim, he can give Sarah the home she’s always wanted. How can he prove his love and show the stubborn woman that he’s the right man for her?
Luke. Well, Luke is, I imagine, every woman’s idea of the perfect man: attentive, caring, and willing to sacrifice his dreams for the woman he loves. I think he is also a man’s man as he is tough, rugged, and stands up for the people he cares about. I found myself liking Luke from the beginning and sympathizing with him throughout the book when things didn’t go the way he wanted them to.
The author did a great job with all of the descriptions. I felt like I was there and participating in the land lottery. I could almost feel the summer heat and taste the dirt when the wind blew. I felt as if I were a part of the bustling city scene. I enjoyed reading about the land lottery and the way the land went from just being land to a town practically overnight. This was a fun and educational read.
Sarah’s Surrender is the third book in the Land Rush Dreams series. It can easily be read as a standalone as there is enough backstory of the characters that the reader doesn’t feel lost. I have to warn you though that once you start reading this book you won’t want to put it down! I highly recommend this book!!
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion which I have given.
