Chloe plans to stay only a short time at her brother Joe's ranch in 1893 Oklahoma Territory. Despite her best efforts to prevent it, she is soon entangled in Joe's matchmaking schemes. At the same time, she catches the interest of a nosy and possibly dangerous ghost called Fire Horse. All Max McKee wants is to buy a few horses. Before he realizes it, he becomes part of Joe's scheme to marry off the rich and lovely Chloe, who happens to be the owner of those horses. Max is a man with many secrets. Despite the risks, he finds Chloe irresistible. When a series of strange fires spooks the local ranchers, Chloe and Max must work together to discover who is setting those fires and try not to get themselves killed in the process.

“PRAIRIE FIRE is a meaty romantic romp through the old West with strong characters who know their own minds. Set in 1890's Oklahoma Territory, the setting is historically accurate and vivid. The added element of the ghost story provides a unique flavor. This is a fun read that will keep you turning the pages!” ~ reviewed by Amber Sparks for Sparks Reviews [FIVE STARS]
“PRAIRIE FIRE is a delightful romp through 1890s Oklahoma Territory with a feisty heroine who will not be restrained, a scrumptous cowboy with secrets, outlaws, bad guys, and a mysterious ghost tossed into the mix. This is a well-written, fast-paced western tale equally enjoyable for women and men. I highly recommend this book. Definitely a 5-STAR read!” ~ reviewed by Grandma's Reading Corner [FIVE STARS]
“PRAIRIE FIRE by Terri Branson is a compelling paranormal historical romance. In 1893, Chloe Talley-Marsh travels to the newly formed Lincoln County. She is returning home to stay with her brother after the premature death of her husband, leaving her a bereft young widow. Part Cherokee and part white, Chloe and her brother, Joe, walk a dangerous path as it was illegal at the time for American Indians to own land. Upon her arrival in Lincoln, Chloe is met not by her brother, but a neighboring rancher, Max McKee. It is lust at first sight for these two, but both are harboring secrets that could either make or break their relationship. Thrown into the mix is a series of inexplicable fires devastating the county. Can Max win over the headstrong Chloe and will Chloe be able to accept Max completely, secrets and all? Miss Branson does an exceptional job of capturing the time period as well as realistically portraying the characters. The added paranormal aspect of an old American Indian ghost made the story even more interesting. Branson has done her research and that is to be admired. I found myself relating to Chloe’s desires to escape the constraints of her gender and her need to travel to places unknown. I was rooting for Max, though, the minute that he brought Chloe back to his ranch — as if he needed any help! PRAIRIE FIRE is a very well-written story, giving just the right dose of steamy romance. Miss Branson has woven together the perfect read for a lazy weekend at home.” ~ reviewed by Heather Osborne for Readers' Favorite Reviews [FIVE STARS]
“PRAIRIE FIRE is another of author Terri Branson's wonderful, eminently readable romances with a paranormal twist. In PRAIRIE FIRE, recently widowed Chloe is tired of being controlled by her brother Joe. Out of love and concern for his sister, Joe arranged Chloe's marriage to rich a banker twenty-two years her senior. After Phillip dies, Chloe heads for San Francisco, focused on a new life only she will control. But when she stops by Joe's ranch in western Oklahoma, Indian Territory, she loses her heart and subsequently all control of her life. Surrounded by bigotry, deliberately set prairie fires, and a mysterious ghost, Chloe faces down her enemies, male and female, and struggles to come to terms with this new world. This novel contains plenty of lust and sweet romance, and some hot sex, but should be suitable for ages 13+.” ~ reviewed by Pat Kelley for Roserock Reviews [FIVE STARS]
“Although PRAIRIE FIRE is fiction, the author accurately shows the landscape and living conditions of 1890's Lincoln County, Oklahoma. This well-written book is filled with interesting characters and lots of fun plot twists.” ~ reviewed by R. Slaughter for Chaos Arts Reviews [FIVE STARS]
“PRAIRIE FIRE is a thrilling story of danger, jealousy, passion, and the mysterious workings of love. Chloe intends to make her own life but had not anticipated meeting Max. He is a man strong in nature and goes after things he wants — and he wants Chloe. Together they form a formidable team. I found this an inspiring and entertaining book to read that I utterly liked.” ~ reviewed by Brenda McCoy for CoffeeTime Romance [FIVE STARS]
“PRAIRIE FIRE is a truly fascinating read with vivid characters and storyline. Ms. Branson is a superb author, managing to make her characters sparkle and revel in their heritage no matter what the costs. I was genuinely surprised and delighted with this novel and look forward to reading more of Ms. Branson's work. Don't miss this one.” ~ reviewed by Sharon McGinty for Sime~Gen [FIVE STARS]
