Review: Love Untamed: Romances of the Old West

Love Untamed: Romances of the Old WestLove Untamed: Romances of the Old West by JoAnn Chartier

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is a collection of romantic tales from the old West. Some are sweet, while others are sad or doomed.

Although the tales in this book are true, the stories read like fiction, which took some getting used to at first because I expected the book to quote more sources within the stories themselves. It's clear the authors did a lot of research, I just wish more of their information was quoted. Maybe I was hoping for more of a textbook of true romance stories.

But, other than that nic-picky bit on my part, this book was great. If you love history, have an interest in the old West and like romance, you can learn a lot from this book. I don't normally read or watch many Westerns, but it was interesting to learn about the love stories of famous Western couples like Doc Holliday and "Big Nose" Kate or Frank Butler and Annie Oakley.
