Bret Nolan had never gotten used to the confines of the city. The sprawling buildings, the rumbling wagons, even the roads: all seemed designed to lock him in. He would always be a cowboy at heart, and his restless blood still longed for the open range. And he was on his way back to the boundless plains of Texas to escort a reluctant heiress to Boston--on his way to pick up a woman destined to be a dutiful wife. But Emily Abercrombie wasn't one to agree to anything easily, and she wasn't about to just up and leave her ranch in Texas to move to an unknown city. And the more time Bret spent with the determined beauty, the more he realized he wanted to be the man--the only man--in Emily's life. Now he just had to show her the true honor found in the heart of a cowboy

In 1881 Bret Nolan left Texas over six years ago to work in his family¿s shipping firm Abbott & Abercrombie in Boston. He enjoys the eastern big city, but at times misses the wide open spaces of back home. His odious Uncle Silas Abbott who treats Bret with contempt for being a Texan assigns him with a key task. Apparently, dying Samuel Abercrombie, who lives in Texas, inherited twenty-five per cent of the company¿s stock last year he wants his daughter to move to Boston. Silas and his partner Samuel¿s brother Ezra order Bret to escort his niece Emily to Boston so she does not marry some wild cowboy. Bret agrees as it gives him a reason to return to Texas even for a short respite before returning to Massachusetts.--------- In Texas, Bret realizes how much Emily enjoys her ranch, but still they agree for her to see her father. However, Bret, who admires the courageous young woman, worries about her safety when he learns someone is rustling her cattle. He asks his two brothers to help stop the thieves while he hopes to prove to Emily how much he loves her.----------------- A TEXAN¿S HONOR is a delightful Texas historical romance starring two likable protagonists who to the readers¿ pleasure and to the chagrin of Uncles Silas and Ezra (clever first names for this avarice pair) fall in love. The story line is fast-paced and filled with Cowboy- style action. However it is the cast that brings late nineteenth century Western cattle country Texas vividly to life, a trademark of a Leigh Greenwood westerner.-------------- Harriet Klausner

I so looked forward to reading a new L. Greenwood novel - but unfortunately the plot was not exciting, after the first few pages it was quite obvious what the last few pages would reveal thus not 'urging' the reader to continue!! I will read the next Greenwood novel with hopes it will be more exciting, make the reader anxious to read the next page and chapter!!
