Title: Forever Wyld
Author: Laura Strickland
Genre: Historical Western Romance, Seasoned Romance
Newly retired, Earl Hanson wishes he felt happier about it. He's built a cabin up in the hills and has free time on his hands. He also has the most obnoxious widow in town eyeing him up as a possible husband. What's a beleaguered former sheriff to do?
Fleeing an ugly scandal, spinster Victoria Major takes a job playing piano at the Trail's End Saloon. But it's the roughest watering hole in Wylder, and when the customers turn rowdy, Earl Hanson steps in to protect her. In return, it seems only right she should shield him from the predatory widow, by pretending he's her beau. Of course, it's only make-believe…
A terrific new addition to the Wylder series. Laura Strickland has a gift for creating a great atmosphere for the reader. The smells and sounds of the dingy barroom come through as you turn the pages. Casting the retired Sheriff and the spinster piano-playing woman is insightful. A quality seasoned romance that again shows the fact that people over 35 have both emotions and passion.
A very smooth read that simply flows from section to section. The secondary characters are fully developed and add a nice depth to the story. A cowboy story not filled with gun fights is also an interesting and refreshing take. It is nice to see an old west story that isn't carried on the end of a pistol. A fun read that will take your mind out of today and back into the past. Recommended to all fans of the Wylder series. Recommended to fans of movies that have a mark of a hall in them. Recommended to fans of seasoned romance.

Multi-award-winning author Laura Strickland delights in time traveling to the past and searching out settings for her books, be they Historical Romance, Steampunk or something in between. Her first Scottish Historical hero, Devil Black, battled his way onto the publishing scene in 2013, and the author never looked back. Nor has she tapped the limits of her imagination. Venturing beyond Historical and Contemporary Romance, she created a new world with her ground-breaking Buffalo Steampunk Adventure series set in her native city, in Western New York. Married and the parent of one grown daughter, Laura has also been privileged to mother a number of very special rescue dogs, and is intensely interested in animal welfare. These days while she's writing, you can always find her latest rescue, Lacy, nearby. Her love of dogs, and her lifelong interest in Celtic history, magic and music, are all reflected in her writing. Laura's mantra is Lore, Legend, Love, and she wouldn't have it any other way.
