A TEACHER ON THE RUN. A BOUNTY HUNTER IN PURSUIT. CAN TWO ENEMIES LEARN TO TRUST EACH OTHER BEFORE THEY BOTH LOSE WHAT THEY HOLD MOST DEAR?
Stone Hammon is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts.
Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan's Academy for Exceptional youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the orphaned girl entrusted to her care. Charlotte promised Lily's mother she'd keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them.
When Miss Atherton produces documentation that shows her to be Lily's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe. Is she villain or victim?
Then a new danger forces Charlotte to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone vows to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart.
What a fun book. It had adventure, romance and even a bit of mystery. The book was full of surprises. I loved how Stone didn't jump to conclusions but watched and made his decisions based on facts. Charlotte was much the same. She acted properly while being careful and still putting the protection of her child above all else. The children were a great addition to the book. I loved what made each one special. The characters were very well developed. I had a hard time putting the book down. I was adopted so these kinds of stories grab me. I wanted to find out what happened next and how things were going to go when the real "bad guy" showed up, because there always has to be one, right? Actually, there are a few of them, but two main ones. I recommend this to anyone who loves an adventure and sweet romance.
