Overview

19th century Texas was alive with lovers and scoundrels, drifters and dreamers. It was a land brimming with wild, glorious passions—passions New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas tenderly evokes in this novel in the McLain series.

Fleeing trouble in Pittsburgh, young Kara O’Riley has no choice but to travel as far West as her meager funds will take her. And when she hires on as bookkeeper for a sprawling Texas ranch, she quickly decides that her new employer, Jonathan Catlin, is the coldest, strangest man she’s ever known. He’s told her he has exactly one year to make the ranch a success—but she has a feeling there’s an awful lot more he’s not telling her. For one thing, there’s something odd about Catlin Ranch. For another, she has glimpsed a hint of tenderness in Jonathan’s gorgeous, haunted eyes—and suddenly her lonely, aching heart is filled with fire...

I loved this book and couldn't put it down (not too good when housework needs cleaning!) LOL. Although she missed some crucial points in the story where I felt she left some detailed words out and it seemed that the story was a little rushed. I would have liked it to drag out a little more but I think that this author has lots of potential!

This was a great book! I absolutly love books about the west. Historical Romance is my favorite...this book was simple to read and to understand. The characters where complicated and mysterious, which gave depth to the book. I highly recommend this book, if you like Historical Romance Novel!!

Love this author. The story was great but thought parts were rushed...the ending was rushed as well. Also why would kara think that that she might be wanted just for her bookkeeping after jonathon made love to her? After all the excitement at the end she had to run outside to be alone. She was outside for 2hours... then they get married. The end.
