Publisher Comments:

From the New York Times bestselling Jodi Thomas comes this captivating tale about a headstrong beauty and the Texas Ranger who protects her without her knowledge.

Twenty-five-year-old Rose McMurray may be beautiful, smart, and capable of running her family's ranch at Whispering Mountain, but she's backed away from marriage three times without giving anyone reasons. Everyone thinks she is a coward, afraid of any adventure, including falling in love. She's never done a single wild or reckless thing in her life...until now.

Duncan McMurray, like Rose, was adopted into the family. As a Texas Ranger, he swears he'll never settle down and marry. He's been Rose's guardian angel since they were kids but for the first time in their lives he's the one who has caused her to be in danger. Somehow, he has to protect her from an outlaw gang determined to kill her without letting Rose know of the danger she's in. He's convinced that her heart can't take the stress if she knows...the only question is can his heart take the nearness of her.

When opposites collide the adventure begins...

Virginia Campbell, September 2, 2012 (view all comments by Virginia Campbell)
Talented Texan Jodi Thomas has a unique and addictive storytelling style. She truly has a way of creating memorable characters and involving us in romantic story lines that offer exciting adventure and laugh-out-loud humor. With her 25th historical romance featuring the great state of Texas, "Wild Texas Rose", Jodi Thomas takes her readers to an even higher level of pure reading enjoyment! While this book features all the cherished elements of historical western romance that serious devotees like me expect, those entertaining elements are delivered in an imaginative manner with fascinating twists and unexpected turns. I love stories about cowboys and their sweethearts, men and women of the West who carved out a life for themselves just as America was spreading its own wings from one coast to another. While everyone knows that western heroes are usually stalwart and somewhat silent, here they are imperfect, quirky, and strong on sentiment. The heroines of "Wild Texas Rose" are awesome! These ladies are not just women who stand by their man, they also pick up the reins and take the lead as they see fit. Rose McMurray is a pretty young woman, smart and capable, and just as lovely inside as she is on the outside. Emotionally scarred by a frightening childhood incident, Rose sometimes doubts herself and has a fear of the unfamiliar and shies away from crowds of people. However, when the going gets tough, Rose comes into full bloom, and that's when the going really gets good! No one is more surprised by the hidden depths to lovely Rose than her foster brother and lifelong protector, Texas Ranger Duncan McMurray. Seeing Rose in a new light leads Duncan to wonder if the affection he has always felt for Rose has become something much more--perhaps the love of a lifetime. Can he be the man to lead Rose to the happiness she thinks beyond her reach? Will Rose follow her innermost wish and let her mind see what her heart has known all along? Sometimes what you are looking for has been right within your reach--just out of sight until you fully open your eyes. Rose and Duncan take us along on their exciting romantic journey, touching our hearts and tickling our funny bone as we follow their steps. Joining "The Rose" and "The Ranger" are an unforgettable cast of characters, some of whom find their own love story. A melancholy judge who often speaks to his "dead" brother may be just the man to rescue an heiress in peril. A settled-in storekeeper and a spinster schoolteacher unbutton each other's buttoned-up existence. A scarred giant of a man and a woman who sells her looks see into each other's souls when they look at each other. Some really dastardly villains, a missing fortune, and a poignant, surprising development in the story line that will renew your faith in the human spirit all add to the rewarding experience of "Wild Texas Rose" and the continued delight of the "Whispering Mountain Series". Thank you, Jodi!
