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 Hammond 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.
I always know that when I pick up a Karen Witemeyer book that I am going to love the story contained in it's pages, and that was certainly true about this one! I didn't want to put it down at all and devoured it as quickly as I could.
I loved both Stone and Charlotte so much! Their characters were completely awesome and I loved their interactions from distrust at the start, to them beginning to care for and trust one another, and finally to them falling in love. They were just so perfect for each other that it was adorable. I also enjoyed Lily, Stephen, and John, kids can sometimes come across a little corny on paper but Karen did a brilliant job with them and they were such fun. I especially enjoyed their unique talents!
The whole plot was fascinating and I was reading every chance I had just so I could find out what happened next. This book was phenomenal from the action, to the romance and everything between! I loved every second and I highly recommend it!
