A teacher on the run. A bounty hunter in pursuit. Can two enemies learn to trust each other before they both lose what they hold most dear?
Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts.
Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan's Academy for Exceptional Youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the orphaned girl entrusted to her care. Charlotte promised Lily's mother she'd keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them.
When Miss Atherton produces documentation that shows her to be Lily's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe. Is she villain or victim?
Then a new danger forces Charlotte to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone vows to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart.
As a fan of Karen Witemeyer's book, it's not surprising that I enjoyed this book. It's not a long book, ideal for reading while on vacation or on a wet Sunday (like I did). It doesn't over tax the brain and you can be thinking of other things, as the story isn't hard to keep up with.
Enjoyed the added detail of the children's "talent's" it added an extra depth to the book. Stone of course was the perfect rugged cowboy hero, but Charlotte held her own.
Stars out of 5 : 3, good book to while away the day, but one I will probably forget about next week. Well worth reading though.
