The Lieutenants Bargain by Regina Jennings

God does work in mysterious ways. Hattie travels by herself to Denver but doesn’t make it because the stagecoach she is in is attacked by gunman. She survives and is saved and rescued by Jack who she knew as an awkward boy who she grew up with. I enjoyed this story and had many laughs during it. I am really enjoying this series and hope for many more. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

I give this book a five out of five stars.

Hattie Walker dreams of becoming a painter, while her parents want her to settle down. As a compromise, they give her two months to head to Denver and place her works in an exhibition or give up the dream forever. Her journey is derailed when a gunman attacks her stagecoach, leaving her to be rescued by a group of Arapaho but she’s too terrified to recognize them as friendly. 

Confirmed bachelor Lieutenant Jack Hennessey has long worked with the tribe and is tasked with trying to convince them that the mission school at Fort Reno can help their children. When a message arrives about a recovered survivor, Jack heads out to take her home and plead his case once more.

He’s stunned to run into Hattie Walker, the girl who shattered his heart–but quickly realizes he has a chance to impress her. When his plan gets tangled through translation, Jack and Hattie end up in a mess that puts her dreams in peril and tests Jack’s resolve to remain single.
