A River to Cross
by Yvonne Harris
Elizabeth Evans, widow of 3 years, has been kidnapped, and her brother killed by Mexicans trying to start a war with the United States. Texas Ranger Jake Nelson comes to her rescue and vows to protect her no matter what. Both of them are soon drawn to each other, but Elizabeth is hesitant to get involved with another lawman like her husband. Will the attraction between both of them last? Or will Elizabeth continue to shield her heart?
This was an excellent book! From the first chapter, I found myself swept into the dangerous world of Texas Rangers and Mexican renegades. Yvonne Harris created memorable characters in Elizabeth, Jake, Jake's Texas Rangers, and others.
Not having read any other books by Yvonne Harris before, I wasn't sure what to expect. But I now know to add her to my list of authors to watch. Her first book, Vigilante's Bride, is available here on Amazon. I already have it on my Kindle and plan on reading it soon!
I give this book a 5...it's fast-paced, full of romantic tension and adventure!
