Overview

Carleigh wants only to escape her father’s lies and find the mother she never knew.

Trig is determined to bring her back again.

When she flees her San Francisco home in a frantic flight through the California wilderness, Trig is blackmailed by her unscrupulous father to chase after her. Though the blossoms of her innocence are crushed forever, revenge for the death of Trig’s younger brother leaves him no choice but to outwit her escape attempts time and time again.

Carleigh must untangle the web of deceit in her past. Trig knows the truth can destroy her. But as a special agent for the United States government, he is drawn into an opium smuggling ring only Carleigh and her mother can help expose, and he is forced to choose between two loves–Carleigh or his country.

Will it cost him the only family he has left in the world? Or will he find new life with the beautiful woman whose very blood marked her his enemy?

Meet the Author

Dear Reader,

While living a childhood in the ranch country of Nebraska’s sandhills, I grew to love the Old West. It seems I’ve written forever about that era–from the time my four daughters were just toddlers, in fact. Now, I’m a grandmother (but a young one, right?)

When we moved to eastern Nebraska and after I discovered Romance Writers of America and my local chapter, I learned the nuts and bolts of the publishing business. I studied, wrote, got rejected and wrote some more. Gradually, I began to place in contests, then win them. My writing became good enough that an agent signed on to represent me. I kept writing, got more rejections, but persevered, until one day–at last!–I sold a manuscript to Dorchester Publishing for their Leisure Books line.

I went on to release four novels from Dorchester, and Harlequin Historicals picked me up with my fifth book. As you read this, I’ve released my fourteenth romance, and I’m currently working on a project that’s new and different and quite exciting. Stay tuned.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit more about me!

In 1895 San Francisco Judge Chandler forces Trig Mathison to find and return to him his daughter Carleigh, who ran to Mexico to meet the mother she thought dead. Trig wants to say no, but Chandler holds the aces. Chandler will pay Trig and more important see that the phony murder rap is dropped. If Trig fails to return with Carleigh, Chandler plans to retaliate by harming his father. Trig believes the vicious man because the Judge killed his brother.................... Trig catches up to Carleigh before she reaches Mexico. However, she manages to escape and continue on her trek for she needs to meet her mother whom she was led to believe by her father was dead. He captures her again and again, but finally agrees to escort her to see her mother before taking her back to her father. On the trip south together, Carleigh and Trig fall in love, but her father remains a formidable person that they will need to deal with if they are to find happiness........................... This is an exciting western romance that brings to life the gay nineties from a not so elegant perspective. The story line is loaded with action as the lead couple deals with a lot more than just what her father does. Though at times the impediments to the protagonists besides her father seem too much, fans will appreciate Pam Crooks¿ BROKEN BLOSSOMS as love battles vengeance in the heart of the hero........................
