BRIDE OF THE HIGH COUNTRY
The Runaway Bride series is a runaway hit with readers who want westerns with atmosphere. Like Penelope Williamson and Jill Marie Landis, Warner brings the Americana aura, the grit, the romance and memorable characters to life in an unforgettable love story.
Since the day she became the ward of a wealthy New York matron, changing her name has been nothing new for Madeline Hamilton. When she discovers the truth about her soon-to-be groom, Madeline flees New York. Furious Doyle Kerrigan sends his business partner, Tait Rylander, to drag Madeline back. In love with Madeline, Tait lets her go. Now going by Lucinda Hathaway, she heads west. Tait follows to warn her that Doyle hired detectives to find her and soon discovers this incredible new woman. When a ruthless enemy sets out to destroy her life, Tait is determined to protect the woman he loves. (BERKLEY SENSATION, June, 384 pp., $15.00)
