Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Known for her western romances, Bittner (Eagle's Song) gives readers a hero much like Clint Eastwood in the macho mold of an old spaghetti Westernat least until he confesses his love and becomes sappily reflective. Texas Ranger John Hawkins rides into a den of ruthless outlaws to rescue Tess Carey and in due course, she returns the favor, rescuing John's life. He is attracted to Tess, to her courage and strength, but as romance would have it, love's impossible because he's a half-breed and she's white. Even accompanying her home leaves Tess open to town gossip and speculation. When she finds herself compromised, Tess asks John to marry her and is surprised by the strength of his passion. Long separations, Tess's fear of intimacy, and a ring of cattle rustlers out to kill them give the newlyweds more than enough to worry about. Sensitivity is all very well and good for the hero, but not when worn like a badge. Luckily, there's enough action to propel the plot through the stickier bits. (Apr.)

    Good Story

    I love everything written by Rosanne Bittner and this was a nice short story. When she was raped and ended up getting pregnant from her rapist, she didn't want to love her own child regardless of how he was conceived so to have a hero like John not only love and marry her, but also love her unborn child knowning what happened, and teach her how to love her chid regardless of the circumstances is amazing. Its a short story but I wasn't disappointed.
