    A wonderful historical romance

    In 1859 near Galveston, Texas, Drummond Roak misses Sage McMurray who left Whispering Mountain Ranch three years ago to attend medical school in Boston. Sage is a widow who plans to open a medical practice in Texas. In Galveston, Sage saves a dog only to have Drum save her and the dog from a wagon. He yells at her and realizes with her look she still sees him as the worthless son of an outlaw and his hooker. Though she is three years older, he reminds himself of his vow that she will be his woman.

    Sage mourns the loss of her spouse Baret who was a mentor not a husband to her. He told her as he was dying he married her because he admired her courage and feared dying alone. They never slept together. Baret's slimy brother Shelley pays his respects to the widow, who is uncomfortable with the wastrel.

    Drum travels with the Texas Rangers; his assignment to kill the leaders of a raider group attacking an English family. He completes his mission and takes the dying mother and her two young children to town for Sage to provide medical help; their father is dead. The woman says they were not raiders, but a killer who wants the family dead; her sons are not safe. Sage vows to keep the children safe while Drum vows to keep her safe.

    The super relationship between the lead couple is refreshing and unique while a secondary romance is also terrific. Although Sage's denial of her feelings towards Drummond turns repetitive, fans will enjoy the fourth Whispering Mountain (see TALL DARK AND TEXAN , TEXAS PRINCESS and TEXAS RAIN).

    Well worth your time!

    Fans of the Whispering Mountain series on the McMurray brothers will be delighted with the long awaited story of their sister, Sage. If you haven't read the series, don't worry; this one is a good place to start. The dirty kid called Drum has grown up into hunky Texas Ranger, but Sage is not easily convinced he's the one for her. It takes kissing, rescuing when she is kidnapped, and more steamy kissing. Nonstop action with laugh outloud moments. If you are a fan of western historical romance, add this to your library.

    Fun, fast and really entertaining. Another great Whispering Pin

    Fun, fast and really entertaining. Another great Whispering Pines tale. I love the characters. Drum and Sage are great. However, Bonnie and her "cowboy" Bradford were a great secondary story. This is a sure bet.

    Loved it!!!!

    I did read this whole series and was rooting for this couple the whole time. Sage and Drum had danced around each other the whole time and it was such a great dance to watch. I actually recommed reading the first 3 books first to understand Drum better. Sage is easily understood if you only can read this one, but Drum, like most men is more complicated than her.

    I Also Recommend:

    Persistence pays off. No matter how many time Sage tells Drummo

    Persistence pays off. No matter how many time Sage tells Drummond to go away he keeps coming back. Which is a good thing because he has to keep saving her life in the bargain. Sage eventually gets it and follows her destiny. Which is Drummond of course. But she makes him work for it. That part can be a little tiresome at times but its still such a good story you'll be glad you read it.. And you'll love the surprise romance of another couple. Read it and find out for yourself.

    A great read

    The last in the series and it did not disappoint. I usually like the sexier intimacy novels. This writer is not one of those but a great story teller. The stories of this series are great. I started another triology by Jodi Thomas and so far I love it to.

    LOVE JODI THOMAS BOOKS

    I've always loved Jodi Thomas novels, and have been impatiently awaiting for this one. I loved the fire between Drum and Sage and couldn't wait to hear their story. Plus I loved all the McMurry men so I'd hoped to get a taste of them involved in Sage's life as well.

    I'll still give the book five stars because I love Jodi's writing, and it was a good story, though I had expected something a bit different. I would have liked to have seen them together more with all the tension they shared in the pervious novels.

    I did though enjoy the interaction between Bonnie and Brad. I just felt there was a little too much disconnection and space between the two main characters. All in all, it was still a great story and well written.
