Sunset Embrace by author Sandra Brown proves why her name is well known to fans of romance. This is one of her best tales. It is a historical romance. Lydia gives birth to her son alone in the woods; her only prayer is for their death. The child is still-born and Lydia is on the verge of death when the Langtry boys find her. Ma Langtry nurses the young woman back to health. Ross Coleman’s wife has died giving birth to their son and now that child is on the verge of death. Lydia’s breasts are ripe with mother’s milk and the infant is hungry. To Ma Langtry it is a simple decision, Lydia must nurse the infant. Despite Ross Coleman’s objections, Ma has her way and the infant and young woman form an instant bond.

Sunset Embrace is a riveting romance by Sandra Brown. My copy is an audio format read by Ellen Archer. Her voice is perfect for this endeavor. The setting for this romance is the 1870s on a wagon train heading west. Romance between Ross and Lydia was inevitable, however, that did not lessen the delight in watching it develop. This is a character-driven tale. I enjoyed getting to know the characters but I think my favorite was Ma Langtry. This historical western romance is also filled with humor. I loved the way Ma Langtry managed to handle the old bitty that was always butting into everyone’s business. This is the first book in the series; the title of the second book is Another Dawn.
