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 thoughts and giveaway:

I so enjoy Karen’s book and this newest release just proves why.

So many things to love about this story. For me personally, is that Charlotte is gifted in music and she is a teacher. Right up my alley since I’m a music teacher. Her love her for students extends beyond the classroom which should be true of every teacher.

I loved the role the children played in this book and the different gifts they each had.

Hints are dropped that Charlotte has been hurt in the past but we don’t know why or how, but some healing needs to take place. This is one of the reasons she is so sensitive to her students.

Stone lives up to his name, sort of. Underneath his tough exterior is a softie and we get little glimpses of that early on.

I was immediately drawn into this book and was hard to put down. Karen is a master storyteller using humor and many serious issues to create a wonderful book.

Overall, an excellent read I highly recommend.
