She fled civilized Virginia for the windy plains of Wyoming, but the hard work of renovating her old family ranch was exactly how Elise Vickerson planned to find solace.
She had spent too long as her husband's punching bag. Striking out on her own shows her how strong she is...she doesn't need a man! Except the cowboy next door has her thinking...
Cody Campbell has proof that the dilapidated Vickerson ranch belongs to him, but he'll have to wait until his father's return to show his prickly neighbor that she's wasting her time fixing up a ranch house that he planned to level.
Elise would do best to ignore her handsome neighbor, but in his arms she feels something new: safe. Knowing that her past would eventually catch up to her, safety and security with Cody was a dream she couldn't afford to entertain.
It is the story of a battered and abused woman, married to a monster, who engineers an escape from her life of horrors. This is Ms. Coca's first published book and it was perfect. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys western romances, strong heroines, and tough but loving cowboys.
This was an awesome LOVE story in the purest sense of the word. This is a spell-binding tale that keeps you reading. It’s beautiful, heart-wrenching and surprisingly funny by turns. Darn, I wished it was longer! I would recommend this author to anyone. This book was a total surprise of the best sort!
Wyoming Solace is an interesting read that takes place in the beautiful Wyoming countryside. Elise showed plenty of strength and determination in leaving her abusive marriage and working towards a new life. I think that Wyoming Solace will please readers with it's old world appeal, simplicity, and unique characters. 3 Angels!
Alanna Coca did a beautiful job on bringing out the emotion in her characters and in me. You will feel Elise’s heartache in certain chapters. Cody is a hero after my own heart. He is definitely your cowboy - One to protect you. I just loved it!
WYOMING SOLACE is an emotional read from Mary/Elise's fears that cause her to run away to her abandoned childhood home in Wyoming. Coca is a new to me author who writes a variety of genres. I look forward to reading them and was able to download two free prequels from her website for two of her other books.
I could not put WYOMING SOLACE down! WYOMING SOLACE is a "read- at-one-sitting" story full of suspense and revealing the traumatic results of abuse. Do NOT miss WYOMING SOLACE or you will regret it. My heart went out to the young woman so deprived of warmth and love; instead forced to endure torture.
This was a greatly entertaining return to historicals form me. This story grabbed me from the beginning, and played on all of my emotions. This was a great step back in time, to a time when women were thought as weaker. I highly recommend y’all check this one out. I will definitely check out more by Alanna Coca.
