On My Nightstand - A River to Cross by Yvonne Harris
Elizabeth Evans moves to Texas to help her widowed brother with his newspaper and his little girl. Leaving Washington, D.C. and the memories of her late husband, she's excited about this new opportunity. What she gets is a different story. Her brother is murdered and she's kidnapped by the forces of General Manuel Diego.
In 1886, Texas is still a wild frontier. Jake Nelson serves as a Texas Ranger. In an area with few law enforcement personnel, the group provides protection from outlaws and handles problems. Jake obtains a photo of Elizabeth and sets out to rescue her.
I don't want to give away too much of the story, but it grabbed me from the first page. This story was a bucking bronco from start to finish. I loved it!
There's plenty of action, history, and romance. It also makes me happy I live now and not back then.
When you read historicals, do you wish you lived in that time period or are you satisfied you live in the present day?
