Is Her Kidnapper the Only Man Who Can Keep Her Safe? Robbing a stagecoach on Christmas Eve and abducting a woman passenger is the last thing Luke Sullivan expected to do. He just wanted to reclaim the money stolen from his pa, but instead ended up rescuing a feisty copper-haired woman who was on her way to marry Sullivan’s dangerous enemy.
Emily McCarthy doesn’t take kindly to her so-called rescue. Still, she’s hoping Providence will turn her situation for good, especially when it seems Luke Sullivan may just be the man of her dreams. But Luke has crossed a vicious man, a powerful rancher not used to losing, and Emily is the prize he’s unwilling to sacrifice.
I really enjoyed the characters and the western story line. It was a story of a girl with only one place to go, or so it seems, and another character who is making a career change and other moral changes in his life. The lives of these two meet and the story goes on to be one I enjoyed following.
However, I was not pleased with some of the descriptive scenes involving the thoughts of one character as he or she looks at the other character. For example, the woman glances at the man’s bare chest and trails off with her throughts. Although it was nowhere near an X-rated scene, it was best left out of a book intended for Christians who do not need to be led astray in thoughts of another person’s bare skin.
There were a few other ‘glance-a-look’ scenes that could have been left out of the book.
