Description

New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas delivers a tender tale of the Old West, a handsome Texas Ranger, and a mysterious woman fleeing a terrible fate in the first powerful novel in the Whispering Mountain series.

Honest, straightforward, and ruggedly handsome, Travis McMurray is also more than a little bit busted, the result of an ambush during his service as a Texas Ranger. And beautiful Rainey Adams is in a fix of her own: on the run from an arranged marriage, she’ll do just about anything to keep her freedom. The first time they meet, she steals a kiss—and his horse. The second time, she’s an angel of mercy who eases him through a terrible fever, and then disappears.

When Travis recovers, he’s determined to track down this intriguing woman and bring her back to the Whispering Mountain Ranch as his bride. But this renegade may be too much for even the toughest Ranger to handle...
