Another good one from one of my favorite authors. This book is set in a time period you don't read about often. It is a welcome change.

In 1933 Katherine Tyler heads from her home in New York to work for her uncle as a nurse in a San Francisco hospital. However, her father's business partner William has his nephew Eddy Jacobs, boyfriend to Kate's sister Susan, abetted by two thugs (Hayden and Squirrelly) kidnap her in West Texas during a train stop. William plans to use her as a pawn to extort money and other valuables from her affluent dad John.

Kate's desperate father ignores the warnings of bringing in the law; he contacts the Texas Rangers. In turn craggy rancher Tate Castle searches for and rescues Kate. Tate is shocked by his attraction to the seemingly frail city girl; she reciprocates his deep feelings. As they flee together she proves stronger than she looks, but his handicapped daughter Emily rejects her father finding a new love; even if Katherine is willing to give up everything for a ranch life in Texas.

I love all her books and this was no exception. It is a wonderfully romantic and suspenseful story. I hope that she comes back with more books on some of these characters.

This is a great story set back in the "old days." A city girl from the East takes the train to California to a new job. She gets kidnapped, and a "cowboy" from the train enters into the story. Lots of action and a good story line. I couldn't figure out who was doing the kidnapping until almost the end of the story. Good characters that come to life as you read. Dorothy Garlock is a master writer at this type of story. If you haven't read any of her books, I highly recommend them if you like romances that take place in America.

The story is set in 1933 and is about a young city woman who is kidnapped off a train in Texas. Her only hope lies with Tate Castle, a struggling rancher who tries to rescue Kate to repay a favor from a friend. With a young daughter to raise and a heartbreak in his own past, this ex-tracker isn't about to take any more risks than necessary. Kate, however, shows she has more grit than he expected. Pretty good book one of her better ones.
