"English milliner and etiquette authoress Jessica Thornton had come to New Mexico in search of a fresh start in life, but Jessica's plans take an unexpected turn after the stagecoach in which she is traveling is attacked and crashes. Forced by circumstances to stay with rough-around-the-edges rancher Brady Wilkins, Jessica not only finds herself slowly falling for Brady, but also reevaluating everything she once thought was important in life. Readers may need a big box of Kleenex while reading this emotionally compelling, subtly nuanced tale of revenge, redemption, and romance, but this flawlessly written book is worth every tear."
"From the first page, it's clear why debut author Warner has won several awards. Her western romance is a striking portrait of the territory in all its reality, harshness and beauty. Like Francine Rivers, Warner creates a novel of the human spirit's ability to conquer emotional and physical obstacles. She conveys her characters perfectly, giving them lives of their own. Readers will be waiting breathlessly for the next book in the Blood Rose trilogy."
