Montana Dawn

Book 1: The McCutcheon Family Series

About the Book

“I enjoyed every minute of the book and that’s about as good as a book can get!”
– Philosophy of Romance

When Luke McCutcheon finds Faith Brown about to give birth in her rickety wagon, his first instincts are to ride for help. Instead, he stays and delivers a beautiful baby girl. Unable to leave the pretty young widow and her little son and newborn unprotected in the Montana wilderness, he brings them along on his family’s cattle drive, to the absolute delight of the other friendly cowboys.

Luke, third son of Montana’s wealthy McCutcheon family, is different from his brothers. As the offspring of a Cheyenne warrior, he carries a chip on his shoulder for all to see. His flashing eyes and handsome face make Faith feel she’s stepped into some long-ago tale where men cherish their women–and keep them safe. If only she could trust him!

Faith is on the run, and although she’s pampered and protected by Luke and his family, she just can’t risk the consequences of sharing the details of her past–one that’s hunting to take her back to the nightmare she’s just escaped. Happy-ever-afters are for fairytales, she reminds herself sternly as her heart feels the warm pull of his.

Still, she can’t help but dream of a loving family, a home to call her own, a beautiful and bright… Montana Dawn

What People Are Saying...

“In the tradition of classic Americana romances Fyffe crafts a touching and heartwarming western set against the backdrop of a cattle drive.  Fyffe has found her place alongside Lisa Cooke, Linda Lael Miller and Catherine Anderson.” 

– RT Book Reviews

“Montana Dawn has everything. Readers will taste the dust, smell the gunpowder and feel the passion.”

– Nationally Acclaimed Author Cheryl St.John

“Montana Dawn is not a soft, fluffy, romance. It’s a story of real people, hard times and harder choices. I enjoyed every minute of the book and that’s about as good as a book can get!”

– Philosophy of Romance

“I have been waiting for this book since I read Where the Wind Blows. I was not disappointed. I stayed up until 5 a.m. to finish it. I loved the different characters and the way that they developed. Her books are just well written love stories featuring individuals with integrity no matter how questionable. Can’t wait to tell my friends about it!” 

– Jennifer Armento

“Caroline Fyffe’s second late nineteenth century Great Plains Americana romance (see Where the Wind Blows) is a superb tale that grips the audience the moment that Luke investigates the scream and never slows down for even a paragraph.” 

– Harriet Klausner

“An excellent read. The author paints vivid pictures–from the smells, sights and sounds of the cattle drive to the heartbreaking decisions Faith feels forced to make. Well-developed supporting characters have their own distinct personalities throughout this story of love, trust and heartbreak. The gentle romance that develops between the main characters was skillfully unfolded, and the reader can’t help but fall in love with Faith and Luke as they fall in love with one another.” 

– Love Western Romances

“Five stars for this series of seven books. I thoroughly enjoyed the series, and five stars for each book. You are there, gazing at the large herd of cattle off in the distance, and see snow topped mountains in the background. You can feel the black cat rubbing against a leg, watch the cook fixing something to whet the appetites of the hardy ranch-hands, and smell the fresh coffee being poured. When you are into books like that, what can you say? The books are not short stories either, but each book is a rather good long read. Best reads in a long, long time.”

– Bob Teates, Amazon Review
