Summary

Historical Romance to Fall in Love With

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 little girl entrusted to her care after her mother's death.

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 the teacher he's after produces documentation that shows she's the little girl's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe.

Is Miss Atherton villain or victim? She acts more like a loving mother than an abductress, and the children in her care clearly adore her. Should Stone break his perfect record? Then a new danger threatens, and Charlotte is forced to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone becomes determined to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart.

A worthy read

I like finding characters I can relate to. Charlotte and I are both wound pretty tight. We like order and we like control. So she and I would be friends.

Stone is about as hunky as they come, with a teddy bear heart to go with his deep amber eyes.

I love the message of family being what you make it.

Great Christian romance. Highly recommended.

Stone Is A Mans Man

I would want no one other than Stone to be my bounty hunter...(cough)...not that I need one.

But can I just talk about Stone? Like wow, he is a man's man. Fighting jaguars, capturing criminals, saving kids, helping a woman in need. He is both intriguing and comical. What I would give to have my own Stone. Seriously...anything.

The teacher, also known as Ms. Atherton is a great character. Leaving everything you know to help a child. Then taking on two more. I don't know if I should commend her for her braveness, or call her out for her imprudent actions. But I'm probably only saying that because I have a hard time taking care of my dog...let alone three children. But what can I say, I am not the cunning teacher.

It was a good story with a good plot. Will definitely read it again in the future!

A Refreshing Adventurous Novel

This book is extremely interesting, adventurous and romantic at the same time . The characters are described so well you wish you could meet them personally. The thread of faith in the characters unites them and makes the reader want to apply that behavior in real life. This book is a must read for anyone who is interested in a good novel and an old-fashioned love story.
