A GOOD MAN...
Holt Price had come to Galveston in search of the woman he loved. After the pain, the heartbreak, the terrible devastation of war, he was ready to settle down with the green-eyed beauty he'd pledged to marry. Instead, he found himself gazing into a pair of vulnerable brown eyes that made him long to heal the hurt inside, to bury himself in the softness of a girl who was not his to take.
IS HARD TO FIND
Her mother had always told her she was born to be cherished. But first battles, then duty, then poverty had stolen her chances of happiness. At 26, she was beginning to wonder if she would have to settle for the next man who came along, or reconcile herself to living alone. So how could she turn away from the lover she'd been waiting for all her life? At last, after so many Mr. Wrongs, here was a husband she could honor, the other half of herself, the man she was born to love.

This is book 2in the night riders series. About Holt. 250 pages. Just love this series great men. D
Hope this series goes on. Good writing and good supsense. Did not care for the cover for the story is better than the cover. Would like to see a different type of cover. But story is very good and worth while to read.
In 1867, Holt Price plans to never work as a doctor again as he lives the horror of butcher assembly line surgical conditions caused by the Civil War bloodbath. All he wants is to forget the atrocities and medicine, and find his beloved and marry her. However, he cannot ignore his need for vengeance against the traitor who sold out his unit, leading to a slaughter. In Galveston, Holt gets involved in the surgery of an accident victim with a spoke stuck through his leg. The town physician Dr. Moore never worked this type of accident besides which he is drunk. At Moore¿s office, Holt meets his medical peer¿s daughter Felicity, who helps. They are attracted to one another, but she fears he will expose her father as an alcoholic and he fears getting entangled with her as his own father was a drunk. This fine post Civil War romance emphasizes the traumas and healing of people trying to regain equilibrium after the world went berserk for a few years. Trying to cope with alcoholism is brilliantly handled though why Felicity thinks no one knows her dad is a drunk seems like too much rationalizing. Leigh Greenwood continues to write some of the strongest historical romances of the past decade; BORN TO LOVE is further proof of this. Harriet Klausner
