Summary

Race Spencer leads a lonely life out west, until he stumbles upon Rebecca Morgan, the only survivor of a terrifying robbery. Sweeping the helpless beauty into his powerful arms, Race carries her away to safety. Rebecca's life is no longer in danger, but her virtue is decidedly threatened. Race arouses feelings in her she never knew she could experience, especially toward such a hardened man. The pulse-quickening tale of a former gunslinger and the earthly angel who falls into his lap, Cherish is compelling from beginning to end. A sparkling narration by Ruth Ann Phimister enriches this story of two lost souls searching for new beginnings and finding one another.

New York Times best-selling author Catherine Anderson is considered one of the world's greatest romance novelists. A nine-time winner of the Kiss Award, her books are popular and critical successes.

Disappointing

I found the 'heroine' irritating. If I'd have been the hero I'd have dumped her halfway through the book. Sorry folks, but I didn't really care what happened to her in the end.

A Good Romance, But:

Overall I liked the book, with the caveat that I read romances when I want something that requires only half a brain to get the plot. Good points are: Race is all you want a guy to be in a romance and more! He's so sweet you'll want him for yourself. Also he's just as emotional as Rebecca, just in a different way. Bad points: the book has Anderson's MO all over it so there are no surprises. The heroine is exceptionally weak and helpless throughout most of the book and can wear on the nerves -- but she does make up for it in the end. Serious mis-representation of quakerism! Quakers are strongly non-violent, but almost nothing else in Anderson's portrayal was accurate especially about them being phenatical christians. Read this if you want easy mindless entertainment.

Could have been half the time!

I did not like this book. I read it through to see if it would get better. There were some ok moments but God, if the heroine could be any more stupid and week, and the hero more wise and powerful. How could the author write of a woman so pitiful.

EXCELLENT

I ALWAYS ENJOY CATHERINE ANDERSON. THIS IS A SWEET STORY. THE NARRATOR, HOWEVER, WAS NOT THE BEST - YOU CAN HEAR HER SWALLOWING WHICH I FOUND ANNOYING.

A good western...

the heroine is a little silly a couple of scenes but that's just her character. I've listened to this one several times over the years.

It's better than that

I was a little surprised at the poor reviews given to this book. It's not a 5 star book, but is a solid story with strong characters and a believable ending. The romance is not erotica so possibly that turns off some romance readers, but it is believable.

horrible narration

I couldn't even finish listening. I like Catherine Anderson's writing but the narration was torture. in addition to sounding like she's ninety the woman is a swallowed. meaning she stops every few words and swallows deeply. torture!

The urge tp prptect

Race Spencere was driving his herd when he thought he heard gun fire. Fearing it could be indians, he rode toward the sound and what he found mde him sick to his stomach. A small party of wagons must have split from the larger wagon train and gone the wrong way. Race found them murdered and mutilted. The wagons had been ripped apart, as thogh the attackers were searching for somethlng specific, and the oxen had been killed. Race thought he must have interupted them and they rode out quickly. Loooking around he saw a young girl, in prayer mode, staring at a dead woman.
