In 1886, the U.S. government gave control of Yellowstone, the country’s first national park, to the cavalry to stop predation by poachers, hunters, and vandals. Mrs. Kate Tremaine is all for the change. The young widow and her late husband held the lease to operate one of the hotels in the park. She has raised her six-year-old son among God’s wonders and knows every inch of the mountainous park like the back of her hand. It is her home, and she has vowed to protect it.

Lieutenant William Prescott needs someone of Kate’s caliber more than he knows. Congress has appropriated funds for only one guide, who is required elsewhere in the park, and the cavalryman is having some trouble finding his way around much less tracking down the troublemakers. As Kate and her son help him, he doesn’t dare give in to the tender feelings she raises in him. A tragic mistake eight years ago nearly derailed his career and made him question his own abilities. Not even Kate’s encouragement or God’s forgiveness can blot out the stain on his conscience.

When Kate’s son disappears, Will and Kate must work together to rescue the boy and protect the park. In doing so, they may just find that two wounded hearts can lead to one powerful love when God is in control.

Nothing Short of Wonderous is book 2 in the American Wonders Collection by Regina Scott!  Set in 1886 near Yellowstone, this novel features Kate Tremaine, a widowed hotelier with a penchant for natural beauty and a mission to protect her piece of the natural world from those that seek to ruin it.  This story is set against a beautiful backdrop of mountains, streams, and vast wilderness.  It really is a stunning historical romance, perfect for fans of faith-infused romance novels! 

Kate is a woman of faith with strong moral principles and dedication to her family and business.  Immediately, the reader is introduced to Lieutenant William Prescott of the US Cavalry.  Will and Kate share an immediate connection and the reader soon learns more about each of them through the other’s eyes.  The relationships between Kate and many of the characters are well constructed and beautifully written!  I loved seeing the beginnings of Kate and Will’s friendship through the beginning chapters of the book!  Kate is really my favorite character.  She is self-possessed, accomplished, and brilliant! 

I loved the setting and the descriptions of Yellowstone!  One of the major plot points in the book revolves around the American Bison, which is the mascot of my alma mater!  Though we call ourselves Buffaloes, I am very glad to see a novel featuring these majestic creatures!  I am even more happy to see a novel about the American West that features such a strong female lead character!  Kate is the embodiment of the spirit of the American West!  I see many of those same traits in Will and other characters as well!

The pacing of this book is perfect for me and I enjoyed the length of the story.  This novel features plenty of action while keeping with the historical romance genre!  I very much enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more novels by Regina Scott in the future!  Highly recommend this for fans of historical romance, historical fiction, and faith-based fiction!
