FROM AUTHOR'S WEBSITE:
When Texas Ranger Jack Bass is rescued from the Apache by a white captive, he's sure he's found the woman he wants to marry . . . except she's already married to his best friend and captain. Jack Bass is everything Emily Marcus desires, the kind of man who can accept what she's survived and the secret she yet carries, but his honor and sense of duty stand in the way of their destined love.
Texas Destiny, the second installment of the Bass family series, is by far the most heartfelt page turner I have ever read. The lead character is Jack Bass, a Texas Ranger with a tough spirit and tender heart. He meets Emily Marcus in the aftermath of an Indian ambush. From the very first sentence of this book, the excitement is nonstop. The story boast so many twists and turns that at times you are truly breathless. The events unfold with such perfection thanks to Ms. Ransom's amazing story telling. This book has it all, realistic romance, convincing dialogue, intense action, and best of all..little touches of humor inserted at just the right time. Both characters have darkness in their pasts, Jack even more so. I do suggest reading the first book of the Bass family(Temptation's Trail)which introduces Jack's uncle, tracker for the Texas Rangers. With only a few years apart in age, Jack and Harmon remain close through out the whole series, the darkness of their pasts intertwining. And believe it or not, Emily Marcus has a tie in there as well, even though she had never met Jack or Harmon before.
Wounded and left for dead by a band of savage Apaches, Texas Ranger Jack bass thought his life was over--until a white woman dressed in Indian clothing suddenly appeared. Before he could learn the identity of this green-eyed angel of mercy, she vanished into the night leaving him with only the memory of whispered words and a gentle touch.. This is an exciting book--Western action and romance
