Mary Connealy in her new book, “Tried & True book coverTried & True” Book One in the Wild At Heart series published by Bethany House Publishers takes us into the life of Kylie Wilde.

From the back cover:   Saddle up for a wildly fun ride with the Wilde sisters!

Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister–and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It’s a risk–they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as “boys”–but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East.

Local land agent Aaron Masterson is fascinated with Kylie from the moment her long hair falls from her cap. But now that he knows her secret, can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government? And when someone tries to force Kylie off her land, does he have any hope of convincing her that marrying him and settling on the frontier is the better option for her future?

The Civil War is over and the Wilde sisters are trying to get their special exemptions they are entitled to for fighting in the war, however disguised as boys. Everything would have worked out, despite the face that it was built on a lie, except they are discovered. The rancher next door wants the land they are homesteading and they will not sell so the next thing he tries is to marry Kylie. That doesn’t fly to well with Aaron as he is in love with her for real. This is quite a remarkable story as there is a lot of events going on. The sisters are a lot of fun and so is the romance.  Ms. Connealy is a very talented writer who gives us wonderful characters that we really come to care about.  “Tried & True” is filled with excitement and humor and Wild West action.
