Twenty-five-year-old Rose McMurray may be beautiful, smart, and capable of running her family's ranch at Whispering Mountain, but she's backed away from marriage three times without giving anyone a reason. Everyone thinks she's a coward, afraid of falling in love. She's never done a single wild or reckless thing in her life . . . until now.

Duncan McMurray, like Rose, was adopted into the family. As a Texas Ranger, he swears he'll never settle down and marry. He's been Rose's guardian angel since they were kids, but how he has put her in harm's way. He'll have to protect her from an outlaw gang determined to kill her, though he doesn't want Rose to know about the menace surrounding her. He's convinced that she would crumble under the stress -- but it's Duncan who may fall apart by the nearness of Rose.

From the New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas comes this captivating tale about a headstrong beauty and the Texas Ranger who protects her without her knowledge. She is a three-time RITA Award winner, who has also won the Romantic Times Readers' Choice Award and the Holt Medallion.

Thomas enchants . . . as [she] tempers the rough texture of the era with tenderness. - Romantic Times

Rose McMurray hurried to Fort Worth, Texas at the urgent request of her friend, Victoria Chamberlain. Once Rose arrived, however, she noticed that Victoria didn’t appear to be in any great distress. She was so busy shopping and preparing for her wedding that Rose hardly saw her. Still, Rose felt that something was wrong. Victoria’s maid said that her mistress cried herself to sleep every night and where was Myers, the prospective bridegroom? With the wedding only days away, shouldn’t the man have made an appearance by now? Texas Ranger, Duncan McMurray, senses that Rose is in trouble, but he doesn’t want to alert her to the size of the danger. In addition, the Tanner brothers are hot on Duncan’s trail. He wouldn’t put it past them to use Rose as a pawn to get to him. Unfortunately, things suddenly go from bad to worse and Duncan is shot. Judge Killian O’Toole assumed that his brother had been killed in the Civil War and he mourned his passing every day. Little did Killian know that Shaun was very much alive, striving to protect his younger brother as he wrestles with his disfigurement. When Killian offers to help Victoria escape her grasping father’s clutches and an arranged marriage, Shaun does his best to help. As the friends converge to help Victoria, a band of ruthless outlaws closes in, intent on spiriting away the prospective bride and whatever valuable prize is hidden in the bottom of her luggage. This is an intriguing tale of love, adventure and suspense set in post-Civil War Texas. An enjoyable read.
