THE RANCHER AND THE RUNAWAY BRIDE

Tate Whitelaw has had enough of her older brothers interfering in her life. So she decides to split from the ranch and does what any young, red-blooded girl would do--run straight into the arms of rancher Adam Phillips.

Adam's in no mood to rescue a damsel in distress, but his heart has other ideas.

Twenty-three years old Tate Whitelaw is tired of the over-protection of her three older brothers, who make it impossible for her to have any fun. Deciding she needs to escape, she leaves Hawk's Way only to land in the arms of another alpha male, Adam Philips, who lost his beloved when she fell in love and married Tate¿s brother Jesse (see HONEY AND THE HIRED HAND). Tate likes having Adam overly protect her, especially his hugs and kisses, unlike her siblings who just seem in the way. Adam wonders if he is fickle because he loved Honey forever, but finds himself needing Tate even more. He knows that she is ignorant that Jesse is living nearby and realizes he owes her the truth, but fears she will leave him if only to see Jesse. When Tate meets Honey she invites her and her spouse to come to dinner at Adam¿s spread. Instead an irate Jesse arrives demanding she leaves, as he is positive his former rival is using his sister as a means of getting even. Tate believes her host loves her, but Jesse refuses to back down. --- This reprint of a delightful western romance will please readers due to the antics of Tate¿s brothers who return with a shotgun and a priest. The lead couple is a fine romantic duo although Adam has problems believing he could be so shallow as to fall in love so fast after losing the courtship of Honey that even he thinks he is on the rebound. Though it would be better to first read HONEY AND THE HIRED HAND to better understand the motives of Adam and Jesse, sub-genre fans will enjoy the return to Hawk¿s way. --- Harriet Klausner
