THE TEXAS RANGER'S DAUGHTER
Opposites attract in this adventurous western set against a blistering Texas landscape, with authentic dialogue, energetic protagonists and gun-toting outlaws.
Outlaws don’t become Rangers. However, Boon is given a chance to redeem his wicked ways if he agrees to track down his former gang and rescue Miss Laurie Bender. Boon knows what the outlaws do to women, so he rushes to her rescue. But Laurie is not the prim and proper miss he expected. She can shoot and ride as well as any man and has a sensual nature that Boon longs to explore. But good, decent women are not for the likes of him. Laurie is attracted to her rescuer and, once back in society, she is forced to decide between her good name and the man she has come to love. (HARLEQUIN, Feb., 282 pp., $6.25)
