Reviews for The Lone Texan
Drummond Roak, the title character in author Jodi Thomas' "The Lone Texan", is a man determined to win the heart of the contrary, fiery, and beautiful woman whom he has loved since he was fifteen years old. That woman is Sage McMurray, slightly older than Drum, and newly returned to Texas from a five-year stay in Boston, MA. During that time, Sage fulfilled her dream of becoming a doctor. She also married and soon became the widow of her much-older mentor. Accompanying Sage as her nurse and assistant is Bonnie Pierce, a tall, plain spinster. When Drum hears that Sage has returned, he seeks her out, and they have an eventful reunion which is made even more complex when Sage is kidnapped by a villain who is pure evil. Drum comes to her rescue, by being the highest bidder for her at an outlaw's auction, and the sparks between the two really start to fly! "The Lone Texan" has a great hero whom we get to know in-depth by his personal thoughts and his love for his one and only woman, who takes a mighty heap of convincing before her heart is truly won. There is also a very sweet and satisfying story of wall-flower Bonnie coming into full bloom with a rescue romance of her own! The characters of Sage and Drum became known in other entries in Jodi Thomas' "Whispering Mountain" series, and at last they have their own wonderful western romance!read more
