Back Cover...

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 little girl entrusted to her care after her mother’s death. 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 the teacher he’s after produces documentation that shows she’s the little girl’s legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he’s been led to believe. Is Miss Atherton villain or victim? She acts more like a loving mother than an abductress, and the children in her care clearly adore her. Should Stone break his perfect record?

Then a new danger threatens, and Charlotte is forced to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone becomes determined to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he’s ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte’s heart.

What I Loved...

Stone. Stone. Stone. From the moment I read that the male centered character was named Stone, I knew I would love this book and Karen Witemeyer didn't disappoint. He is a wonderfully and well written character. Charm, wit, smarts and all man. Love it!

Romance, a bit of action and comedy are what I have come to expect and love from Witemeyer and I am always satisfied. If you have never read any of her books, you better hurry and start. She is consistently good and this book is right up there with all of her others, which means you have a lot of catching up to do.

What I Liked...

The gifted children in the book (the students of main character Charlotte) were a great addition to the plot. Extraordiarily talented children are rare in Christian Fiction books from this era. Nice and lovely surprise. I can't help but wonder if Karen plays the piano herself. She describes the emotions of a piano player getting lost in the music so vividly as one who has experienced it herself.


The cover is cute, as is all of her covers, except I didn't picture Charlotte that way at all and I imagined Stone a larger man than the one covered. However, this is a must read for all Christian Fiction lovers or newcomers.
