Overview


She was his captive. He was the one man she was forbidden to have...

As soon as the tall, handsome Spaniard leaned down from his stallion to offer her a rose, Caralee McConnell know California held danger. But all too quickly she was forced to deny the heat Ramon de la Guerra had sparked. Determined to please her uncle who had saved her from poverty, she must resign herself to marrying a man he has chosen for her...and ignore what is in her heart.

Behind Ramon de la Guerra's dark eyes throbbed the memory of his lands, stolen by the beautiful Americana's uncle. He had sworn to reclaim them-riding by night as the ruthless outlaw, El Dragon. In a moment of rage and revenge, he stole Caralee away to his mountain lair...but there, in a passion as sweet as California wine, he would reveal a secret that could cost him his life-and his heart's freedom. Midnight Rider is a thrilling western romance from bestselling author Kat Martin.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Martin's latest (after Devil's Prize) explores the aftermath of the Mexican-American War and its effect on California circa 1850. The nebulous laws aimed at settling land disputes between the Mexican Californios and the Americanos allowed some Anglos to steal vast quantities of California land. This story is about one such Anglo-Caralee McConnell's uncle-who has staked a claim to Rancho del Robles, the ranch owned for centuries by Ramon de la Guerra's family. Ramon, determined to "set things right, to find justice with or without the Anglo law," fights back under the guise of El Dragon. A midnight raid on the ranch nets him Caralee, who becomes his unwilling hostage and later his unwanted bride. Despite a contrived and predictable ending, the author's colorful overview of the awakening of California, its people and their way of life makes this a worthwhile read. (Mar.)
From the Publisher
"What an outlaw! Dark, dangerous and delicious! Midnight Rider is a rich panorama of Old California. I couldn't put it down!" —Georgina Gentry

    I have read 29 of Kat Martin's books. Not one has been a disappointment since I started reading her novels. I just hope she doesn't stop writing. Since getting a Nook I read a lot faster than I did before, so if you read this Kat, start writing faster. LOL!!!
