Rose McMurray hurried to Fort Worth, Texas at the urgent request of her friend, Victoria Chamberlain. Once Rose arrived, however, she noticed that Victoria didn’t appear to be in any great distress. She was so busy shopping and preparing for her wedding that Rose hardly saw her. Still, Rose felt that something was wrong. Victoria’s maid said that her mistress cried herself to sleep every night and where was Myers, the prospective bridegroom? With the wedding only days away, shouldn’t the man have made an appearance by now? Texas Ranger, Duncan McMurray, senses that Rose is in trouble, but he doesn’t want to alert her to the size of the danger. In addition, the Tanner brothers are hot on Duncan’s trail. He wouldn’t put it past them to use Rose as a pawn to get to him. Unfortunately, things suddenly go from bad to worse and Duncan is shot. Judge Killian O’Toole assumed that his brother had been killed in the Civil War and he mourned his passing every day. Little did Killian know that Shaun was very much alive, striving to protect his younger brother as he wrestles with his disfigurement. When Killian offers to help Victoria escape her grasping father’s clutches and an arranged marriage, Shaun does his best to help. As the friends converge to help Victoria, a band of ruthless outlaws closes in, intent on spiriting away the prospective bride and whatever valuable prize is hidden in the bottom of her luggage. This is an intriguing tale of love, adventure and suspense set in post-Civil War Texas. An enjoyable read.
