"YOU'RE UNDER ARREST!"

To a woman who was all fire, sass and temptation that was a hell of a hello! But army major Rafe Hunter had no choice. Karissa Baxter was a "Sooner" attempting to secure the homestead she wanted before the start of the Land Run, danger—and rules—be damned! But what about what he wanted? And what if what he wanted was her?

WHO DID RAFE HUNTER THINK HE WAS?

All spit and polish, and with Eastern money to boot! Unlike the hardscrabble types Karissa was used to, he could never understand what drove her to go after her dreams. So how had he managed to quick-march his way into her heart?

In 1889 Indian Territory, military Commander Rafe Hunter and his troops try to keep law and order just before the first Land Run is to begin. He knows that he must warily watch the nearby Cheyenne-Arapaho reservation to insure troublemakers do not disrupt the land distribution race that will start very shortly. He also keeps an eye out for ¿Sooners¿, cheaters trying to grab land too soon by sneaking out before the contest starts.

Rafe arrests Karissa Baxter for jumping the gun on the Land Run. He fears for her safety so he keeps her in his room, but wonders who will keep her protected from him as he desires her like no one before. Unable to resist Rafe decides to help Karissa obtain the land she wants, but as they fall in love, a rogue covets that claim (and others) and his fiancée arrives from the east to claim him.

OKLAHOMA BRIDE is an action packed western romance that never slows down from the moment the protagonists meet. The story line is fast-paced, filled with adventure, but also provides a deep look at an intriguing moment in American history. Though the antagonists are too obvious to compete against the heroes, fans will enjoy joining the Sooners, soldiers, and others, but especially the lead couple during the first Land Run.

OK........................................................................................................................................... Rafe a little to starched and stuffy to be Karissa's type. Karissa is a little hysterical and stupid to be Rafes type. I get the whole opposites attract theme but I couldn't see the chemistry between these two. I did think the Oklahoma land rush was a good background though. OK read.
