Overview

Best-selling author Heidi Betts is known as a versatile author, who writes what she loves…and makes readers fall in love all over again. Whether she's writing contemporary romance, paranormal, or historical, Heidi Betts never disappoints.

The road to Hell might be paved with good intentions, but David Walker knew the trail to Purgatory, Texas, was lined with nothing but trouble. Wounded and in desperate need of help, he had survived the treacherous journey to reach the blue-eyed, blond-haired girl of his memories. And in Hannah's arms he discovered Heaven. But torn between the white man's world and his Indian heritage, David wondered if he'd been saved or damned. The man who called himself Spirit Walker bore little resemblance to the boy who had comforted Hannah during her darkest hours at the orphanage. There was nothing safe about the powerful half-breed who needed her assistance. Still, the schoolteacher would risk everything -- her reputation, her heart, her life -- to save him, for she recognized a childhood bond had blossomed into a love strong enough to overcome any challenge.

"Heidi Betts scores with a sizzling tale of passion, intrigue, and enduring love." -- Merline Lovelace

"For a good story and unforgettable characters, you can't beat Heidi Betts. Hang on to your stetson…." -- Maggie Osborne

Meet the Author

Bestselling, award-winning author Heidi Betts began her love affair with the romance genre in junior high school, where she used to sneak romance novels into study hall when she should have been doing her homework. It didn’t take long to decide she wanted to write a few romances of her own, so she set out to do just that.

Her first book was released by Dorchester Publishing in 2000, with five more to follow. From there, Heidi moved into the contemporary arena by writing numerous category titles for Silhouette Desire, and recently she signed with St. Martin’s Press to begin writing funny, sexy single titles.

With each new book, Heidi asks herself how she can bring to life endearing heroes and heroines whom readers will believe are meant for each other. A with each new novel to hit the stands, readers and reviewers alike declare she knows how to create a story that sizzles, charms, and delights from the first page to the last. Her first title for Silhouette Desire landed at #1 on the Waldenbooks/Borders Series Romance Bestseller List, where her books have continued to make an appearance ever since.

Heidi loves to read, write, watch movies (and just a little too much television), and surround herself with furry, four-legged friends in her home in the beautiful hills of Central Pennsylvania.

She loves to hear from readers through her website, so please visit her at HeidiBetts.com.

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

"There's no s in encyclopedia, Frederick," Hannah mumbled disgustedly to herself as she corrected her students' weekly spelling exams at the small oaken table in the middle of what passed as the dining room of her tiny cabin.

With a sigh, she rose to her feet and crossed to the cast-iron cookstove where a pot of water was just beginning to boil. She poured the steaming liquid over a spoonful of loose tea leaves in the bottom of her earthenware mug and carried it back to the table.

She was about to sit down, ready to continue grading papers, when she heard a low sort of scuffling noise outside the cabin door. At first she thought it might be leaves blowing across the ground, or a stray raccoon sniffing around for something to eat. But a moment later, she heard the sound again, followed by what was almost certainly the nicker of a horse.

Cautiously, Hannah moved to one of the small windows on either side of the front cabin door, lifting the gingham curtain just a hair to glance out.

It was dark, the tall trees surrounding her small house obscuring any moonlight that might otherwise illuminate the yard. But even so, Hannah thought she saw something. Slight, shadowed, but a movement nonetheless.

For one panicked moment, she thought about biding or escaping out the back. But then reason returned and she reminded herself that she had always been safe here--just a few minutes' walk from the main street of Purgatory, Texas--and that it was unlikely anyone would want to hurt her, anyway.

Just then, the horse nickered again, and even though her heart stuttered in her chest, she let the curtain fall and moved to the door. She opened it in onequick, smooth motion, without hesitation.

"Hello?" she called, not loudly but with enough force to be heard by whoever was lurking about.

A pale arc of light shone from inside the cabin and illuminated several feet in front of her. A large piebald stallion sidestepped into that shaft of light and Hannah's breath caught in her lungs.

Mounted astride that horse were a man and a child. Both wore buckskin shirts and leggings, and leather moccasins on their feet. Both had straight black hair that fell to their shoulders and beyond. And both stared at her as though she were the one out of place in this quiet little spot outside her cabin.

But it was the man who made Hannah's mouth go dry. Not only was he towering and intense, but she found him handsome beyond belief.

If any of the citizens of Purgatory who had hired her to educate their children could have read her thoughts at that moment, they would surely have thrown her out on her ear.

More than his dark skin and penetrating gaze, however, she couldn't help feeling that his strong features were somehow familiar to her.

    fine return to Purgatory, Texas

    He knew he needed help or he would die, so half-breed David Walker forces himself to reach Hannah, his friend from the orphanage. In spite of the wound, David survives the arduous trek to Purgatory, Texas where he knows the schoolteacher will nurse him back to health. Hannah cannot believe the boy who kept her safe and provided solace to her as a little frightened child, now seems more Indian than white. David seems to have vanished replaced by Spirit Walker. However, to Hannah a rose is a rose especially when that flower is David or as he calls himself now Spirit Walker. Hannah knows she loves him and has always ever since he soothed her years ago. She willingly risks her life when his deadly enemy comes to town to finish the job. The road to Purgatory, Texas means entertaining reading for fans of western romances so with Heidi Betts returning there with HANNAH¿S HALF-BREED, fans knows this novel will be just fine. The lead couple is a delightful duo sharing in common love and a willingness to give up everything for their beloved. The arrival of the Purgatory horde (see the other alliteration novels - CALLIE¿S CONVICT and WALKER¿S WIDOW) will please fans of the author and help entice readers to seek other books like this one.

    A great way to begin the new year!

    Hannah Blake had grown up in an orphanage in the town of Purgatory. Her best friend had been David, a half-breed. David had been adopted by the Walkers and was deeply loved by them. Yet often he went to the Comanche tribe to visit his mother's people. Hannah eventually became Purgatory's schoolmarm and David went only by the name of Walker. Even after years of separation, when Walker needed help he turned to Hannah. His sister, Bright Eyes, had long ago left the tribe with Ambrose Lynch, a white man who claimed he wished to marry her. She lived with Lynch at the Bar L. Their son, Little Bear, was seven years old and Bright Eyes was pregnant again. The problem was Lynch. Due to all his physical abuses she feared for the life of her unborn baby. Walker took Little Bear to Hannah for safety and planned to return for Bright Eyes. However, Fate had other plans. **** Heidi Betts has already made herself famous in the genre of Historical Romance. This book clearly shows why! Hannah and Walker seemed to come to life as I read their wild adventures. This is a great way to start off your new year! Recommended reading! ****
