"The Worth Brothers Series is trilogy about three English brothers and the American women they meet and marry."
This is the tale of Heiress Kate Barker and her brother-in-law, Stephen Worth.
Fast paced tale of guilt, betrayal, passion, healing, forgiveness, and love. Set against the backdrop of the Missouri territory.
An Englishman,an American heiress and a two year old boy, who loves them both.
What do they all have in common, you ask? Will let me tell you, they love each other, although, danger lurks just beyond the bend. You see, Stephen's wife, Kate's sister, was murdered and Stephen was blamed. He is out for revenge for the wife, child and life stolen from him by a shameless man. Oh, wait, I don't want to give anything away. You must read this fast paced tale of love,passion and "Love's Revenge".
Received for an honest review.

Pampered city girl meets displaced European rich man turned cowboy. When Kate's brother-in-law shows up to claim his son after his wife dies, Kate is determined to keep them apart. If he had cared about his sone then why didn't he come to claim him two years ago after his wife died. Kate suspects that something isn't right and agrees to allow Stephen to take the boy, but only if she can come with, and if he proves to be a poor father (by her standards) he will give the boy back.Was this review helpful?

This trip takes them from the civilized city of St. Louis to the frontier in Colorado. Along the way they meet the Ute Indians. I loved the way they were handled in this story. They weren't the mindless savages that many authors use when they write about the Indians. In fact, I hadn't seen anything quite like their story in a book before and they really added a special and unique quality to it.
Kate and Stephen slowly begin to trust each other along their journey, but of course there are secrets lying in wait, ready to break them apart. When everything begins to come out, it is a truly tragic and heart breaking story. Much of how Stephen has acted becomes more clear as we learn more about him, and Kate seems to see this right along with you. This was a great romance.

me reevaluate some long held beliefs. I was always a firm believer in leaving the child with the caregiver that the child feels safest with.
In this instance is that what was really best for the boy? Well, this is a book with an HEA so everyone gets what they need and deserve.
But in a time period when communications could take months and frontier justice was often no justice at all, lines can be smudged.
Ignorance of other cultures and financial bias was rampant, with very little recourse left to injured parties. Thank goodness, out heroine
Kate was, though a bit quick to jump to conclusions, still in the end was an intelligent and open minded woman.
I really liked the fact that this book incorporated a great many touchy issues of the time, when it could have easily been a formulated but
perfectly adequate historical romance. This was an extremely diverse book and the main characters were noticeably well developed. I
really, really wanted more of Stephen's back story. The few bits and pieces we were given made me absolutely rabid for the rest of the
tale. It was an ingenious way for Joan Avery to insure that those not already sold on the series would be more than ready to delve into
the next Worth Brothers book.
It is a rare feat indeed for me to indulge in a historical that has no paranormal or kilt wearing elements, but I am just tickled that I rolled
the dice on Love's Revenge. It made me think, groan, cuss, but best of all it made me smile.
Well done, Ms. Avery, brava.
