THE MAVERICK'S BRIDE
THE MAVERICK'S BRIDE (4) by Catherine Palmer: 1898, British Protectorate of East Africa: Emma Pickering believes God led her to Africa to help care for the sick, but her father, the director of the British Railway, won't allow her to help in a hospital. Her job is to keep her younger sister out of trouble. But when her sister goes missing, Emma enlists the help of rancher Adam King, even though she's heard stories that should make her not trust him. There is danger in the wilds of Africa, from four-legged as well as two-legged animals, and Adam is very protective of Emma. Can they find her sister, or will the African wilderness claim another victim? Palmer adds spice and unpredictability to this love story, making it fresh and wonderful.
