Jodi Thomas delivers a tender tale of the Old West, a handsome Texas Ranger, and a mysterious woman fleeing a terrible fate, the first in the powerful new Whispering Mountain trilogy.

Honest, straightforward, and ruggedly handsome, Travis McMurray is also more than a little bit busted, the result of an ambush during his service as a Texas Ranger. Beautiful Rainey Adams is in a fix of her own. On the run from an arranged marriage, she’ll do just about anything to keep her freedom. The first time they meet, she steals a kiss—and his horse. The second time, she’s an angel of mercy who eases him through a terrible fever … and then disappears.

When Travis recovers, he’s determined to track down this intriguing woman and bring her back to the Whispering Mountain Ranch as his bride. But this renegade may be too much for even the toughest Ranger to handle.

    " More like a 1.5 -- but since I don't want to scream for having wasted my time...I rounded up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 1/11/2014

    " This is the third year to read this series of Whispering Mountian by Jodi Thomas. First time I read this was in 2009 I got the books from the Van Alsyne Library and then in 2010 I bought my Kindle and Jodi Thomas was one of first authors I add. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brunhilde | 1/10/2014

    " I think I will actually give this 3.5 stars. I really did enjoy it. It was a nice romance novel. I would read more by this author. It had all the stereo-type romance novel stuff going for it, but there was also a sweet genuineness that was refreshing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leea | 12/31/2013

    " Buddy read with Jen and Kay :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Regan | 12/12/2013

    " Time for a good western! It was a cute read. Kind of simplistic in parts and if I read about Rainey's pies one more time it would have been one time too many. Now, Travis.........my oh my! Man after my heart! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christel | 12/8/2013

    " Sweet Story!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lane | 10/26/2013

    " OK, predictable but at least the romance was actually romance...call me a tradionalist. Plus a little history thrown in for good measure. Can't say I whole heartedly recommend it, but wasn't a bad way to pass a snowy afternoon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 9/29/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 9/9/2013

    " This was a very sweet romance but a very slow build. I love reading about rugged cowboys or rangers. I just wish that there was a little more steam that I normally like in my books. Overall, this was an enjoyable historical western. "

    " In the mid 1850's a Texas Ranger comes into contact with a woman who has run away from her cruel father in Washington D.C. and made her way to Texas. Of course, they fall in love, but the book dishes up excitement and adventure along the way. Entertaining. "
