Tracie Peterson Embarks on a New Texas Series

When her father disappears in war-torn Mississippi, Hannah Dandridge finds herself responsible not only for her younger siblings but for the ranch her father recently acquired on the Texas plains. Though a marriage of convenience could ease her predicament, she determines to trust God for direction.

Wounded soldier William Barnett returns to his home only to discover that his family's ranch has been seized. Though angry and bitter at this turn of events, he's surprised to discover that it is a beautiful young woman with amazing fortitude who is struggling to keep the place running.

Hannah, desperate for help, and William, desperate to regain his family's land, form an uneasy truce. But nearby Comanche tribes, the arrival of Confederate soldiers, and a persistent suitor all threaten the growing attraction that builds between them. Will they be able to set aside their own dreams and embrace the promise of a future together?

Just as good of a read the 2nd time!

Enjoyed This Historical/Suspense/Romance,But Could Have Used A Little More Ooomph!

Tracie Peterson is one of my favorite authors. I have read her Heirs of Montana,Alaskan Quest series,and my favorite series by her are still her Harvey Girl Romances.... Desert Roses and especially her Westward Chronicles.

Since I am especially interested in the American Southwest area[and Pacific Northwest] I was excited to see she has a new series set in the southwest.

I enjoyed the story and the characters,except for of course hating the villian,but I was disappointed that there wasn't any mention of the differences in the SW from where the main characters came from in VA,except for the mentions of the tex-mex food cooked by the Mexican ranch cook.I would have liked to have read how they had to adapt to scorpions and tarantulas ect as in the Harvey Girls books.I also thought the pacing was very slow in this book,and the romance between the two leads needed more spark/chemistry/physical attraction.

Otherwise, a good read.
