What a great book! This was a new to me author and I’m hooked. In this adventure set in the historical west Rose is on the run from a life she wants to forget. Callum is determined to protect and save her. It doesn’t hurt that he has fallen for her too. I love the writing of this story. It kept me excited about what would happen and the details made the characters feel so life like I felt like I was part of the story. You will love this fun adventure and I highly recommend it.

A woman on the run, a handsome Scotsman professing love, can a snowstorm force Rose to admit the truth? Rose is an accomplished stage actress but she must go into hiding to escape an abusive relationship. Being a saloon singer in Wylder isn't so bad, especially when she meets Callum. He treats her right and even proposes marriage. She keeps her past hidden from him because she doesn't want to hurt him. But when her past suddenly shows up, she knows it's time for last call. Heading to California is her only recourse, or so she thinks. Callum has other ideas and tries to convince her to take a chance on him and true love. Will Rose kiss Wylder and Callum goodbye or will she trust in love?

The Wylder Rose is a historical western romance not to be missed. Jane Lewis is back with another Wylder installment, one which I thoroughly enjoyed. I'm a big fan of old west entertainers (actresses/singers/dancers) so I connected with Rose right away. She's a fascinating character with a cleverness I wasn't expecting. Her thoughts, feelings, and reactions are honestly portrayed. The plot moved at a quick pace with a full cast of characters to interact with. The historical accuracy was impressive yet I wasn't surprised in the least as Jane Lewis diligently researches every novel she's written. The romance between Rose and Callum was such a joy to read. The reader can feel every emotion through the descriptive narration, including falling in love. If you're a historical western romance reader, you'll love The Wylder Rose. If you're yearning for the wild west, pick up The Wylder Rose. Another historical romance gem from Jane Lewis. Highly recommend!
