A Worthy Pursuit

GIVEAWAY

WITEMEYER, KAREN
A WORTHY PURSUIT

A teacher on the run. A bounty hunter in pursuit. Can two enemies learn to trust each other before they both lose what they hold most dear?

Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts.

Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan's Academy for Exceptional Youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the orphaned girl entrusted to her care. Charlotte promised Lily's mother she'd keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them.

When Miss Atherton produces documentation that shows her to be Lily's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe. Is she villain or victim?

Then a new danger forces Charlotte to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone vows to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart.

My Review:

This is my kind of math: Witemeyer's stellar wit + action galore = one very happy reader!

Where do I begin? Stone Hammond leaps to the forefront of my mind. The epitome of a cowboy hero straight from the pages of young Lily's action-packed dime novels. Charlotte can't help but admire the gruff  tracker. Especially when he rushes to the rescue a time or two -- well constantly throughout the story actually. Sparks fly between Charlotte and Stone even with all that danger afoot. Important to note: if you laugh and gasp at the same time it gives you the hiccups. That happened to me a lot during this read. Who knew action scenes came with 'punch' lines?

And it isn't long before a smitten Stone applies his exceptional retrieving skills to pursue Charlotte. Prepare the fainting couch now, please. A retriever with an impeccable record, he isn't about to fail when it comes to this romantic pursuit. Talk about a great title tie-in. Not only is it a worthy pursuit, it's a toe-curling one as well!
