THE LONE TEXAN
The Queen of Texas romance does it again, sweeping readers back to Whispering Mountain for another tale rife with drama, action and passion. No one makes Texas seem more exciting, romantic and alive than Thomas. Here's a surefire hit for western fans to savor.
For two years Sage McMurray has been east, practicing medicine with her husband. Now recently widowed, she returns to Texas for a fresh start. And what a start it is. Her first day home she's taken hostage in a bank robbery. When the outlaws decide to auction her off, Sage prepares to fight for her life. Suddenly Drummond Roak makes the high bid. Sage recognizes him from their school days, but the boy she knew is now a dangerous outlaw.
Working clandestinely with the Texas Rangers, Drummond is on an assignment when he walks into the auction. He must persuade Sage to trust him, but more than that, he has to convince her that his love for her is unchanged and that he's more than worthy of her. (BERKLEY, Oct., 336 pp., $7.99)
