Publisher’s Weekly (for Untamed Journey):

“A daring young woman meets her match in this entertaining and sexy romance of the Old West…The romance is well plotted, with plenty of patient seduction to fan the growing flames, and Ruth's nature as a survivor makes her an appealing heroine…Populated by likable and well-developed secondary characters, with suitably evil villains, this romance is a satisfying Old West adventure.”

Elizabeth Lowell, Bestselling Author of Only His and Beautiful Sacrifice, wrote:

"Sexy and exciting! If you love western historical romances, there's a new writer waiting for you.  With Eden Carson's debut novel, Untamed Journey, you'll get real history, wonderful side characters, and a hero and heroine to love."

5 out of 5 Stars from Donna McBroom-Theriot, Blogger at My Life One Story at a Time

"I really enjoyed Untamed Journey. I absolutely love a leading lady who is feisty and determined...What happens next will leave you gasping for air from laughing...The author draws the reader into the story with vivid details of the scenery and characters, allowing the reader to board a horse for the trip of a lifetime. I enjoyed the book and highly recommend it."

4 out of 5 Stars from SOS Aloha Book Blog (for Untamed Journey):

"Carson delivers a no-holds-barred romantic suspense...She created a multi-dimensional world, ranging from the bandits hiding in the foothills, to the Marshalls tracking their movements, to the bullying tactics in land grabs, and to the train ride where Ruth finds the courage to break free. The transition is seamless as the plot moves from one scene to the other, waiting for the collision of the characters to a satisfactory ending. UNTAMED JOURNEY is Carson's debut ... and she has a long career ahead of her. Recommended read for those who enjoy historical Westerns with true grit."
