THE HORSEMAN'S BRIDE
The Gustavson family has won the hearts of Americana fans seeking a realistic love story. Lane wisely continues in this vein with the latest in her series, in which a fiery young woman meets her match in a mysterious drifter.
Clara Seavers is wary of her grandmother's hired hand. He's too handsome and charming for his own good. Tanner understands horses and women, but Clara is different and someone he can't take the chance of getting involved with. He's a man on the run with a recent past that could ruin Clara.
But when their animosity turns to love, there's no stopping Clara from learning his secret. And when the truth is revealed at the same time that oil is found on the Gustavson property, it will take Clara's courage to save Tanner from being a fool. (HARLEQUIN, Mar., 250 pp., $5.99)
