To artist Glynna Williams, Texas was a vast land of Wild beauty carved by God's hand, untouched as yet by man's. And the most exciting part of it was the fierce, bare-chested half-breed who saved her from a rampaging longhorn bull. Just as the untamed wildnerness called to the painter in her, Hunt's mesmerizing eyes touched the woman in her.

As she spent days sketching his magnificent body, she dreamed of spending the nights in his strong arms. Glynna knew the paintings she'd done of his Comanche people would guarantee her success as a Western artist, but would she ever succeed in capturing Hunt's wary heart? He'd been trapped and wounded before by a white woman. Now only the gentle bonds of love could make Glynna the Halfbreed's Lady.

Saloon owner Jake Scully knew his rough frontier town was no place for a delicate lady like Lacey Stewart. Once, he'd sheltered her from harm. Ten years later, Lacey was no longer a frightened girl, but a woman grown. She deserved a respectable man, not a jaded rogue like Jake.
And Jake's "delicate lady" has a miond of her own - with ideas that include introducing Jake to a life of love and faith, no matter how hard he tried to keep his distance. But when danger begins stalking her again, Jake realizes that the only safe place for Lacey was by his side.

Brand, The Half-Breed Scout
The man she found fulfilled Sheri's every requirement for a fantasy lover - half Apache, all dark, dangerous male- but he was completely wrong for a real-life mate. On the run from the law, Brand guearded his heart as carefully as he did Sheri's life. But the wildfire attraction between them destroyed her reservations, leaving Sheri with one burning need- to become the Renegade's Lady.

Great book. Short chapters make easy stopping points, but you won't want to put it down. The front cover shows the side view of a naked man, but the cover easily slips off. I hid the cover so my kids wouldn't see. Despite the cover, the book is not too steamy. A good, easy read with surprising twists.

Excellent book! This book begins the Calder series; Stands a Calder Man is #2, This Calder Sky is #3. I have not read the 4th yet, but I loved these 3 and have them posted. The series follows the next Calder generation and their struggles and triumphs. These are not "happily ever after" romance books, the series does have some heartache.

I don't normally like time travel books, but I did enjoy this book. It was a good story and you could easily place yourself with the heroin and relate to her struggles.

I read the book right after visiting Carnton and visiting the cemetery (yes, there are still blood stains on the floor). Each chapter is from someones point of view and I found some chapters difficult to read because you know that person is going to die. I even cried a few times. Even though it is fiction, it seems very real and has a lot of facts. Overall, one of the best books I have ever read. Definitely on my keeper shelf.
