Fall in love with the first book in the Blood Rose trilogy-a romance of the Old West by a phenomenal new talent2011 RITA Winner for Best First Book
On a stagecoach traveling through New Mexico Territory, Jessica Thornton is a long way from the cool mists and lush gardens of her native England. An authoress and milliner, she carries the weight of a scandalous secret-a horrible shame that has brought her to the West on a desperate search for the only family she can trust: her brother.
No one prepared Jessica for the heat and the hardships. And no one prepared her for a man like Brady Wilkins. For, despite the rancher's rough-hewn appearance and her own misgivings, Jessica must put her life in his hands after their stagecoach crashes. And she begins to see the man behind the callused hands and caustic wit. A man strong enough to carve out a home in the wilderness, brave enough to fight for his own, and passionate enough to restore her faith in herself-and in her heart.
"English milliner and etiquette authoress Jessica Thornton had come to New Mexico in search of a fresh start in life, but Jessica's plans take an unexpected turn after the stagecoach in which she is traveling is attacked and crashes. Forced by circumstances to stay with rough-around-the-edges rancher Brady Wilkins, Jessica not only finds herself slowly falling for Brady, but also reevaluating everything she once thought was important in life. Readers may need a big box of Kleenex while reading this emotionally compelling, subtly nuanced tale of revenge, redemption, and romance, but this flawlessly written book is worth every tear."
"From the first page, it's clear why debut author Warner has won several awards. Her western romance is a striking portrait of the territory in all its reality, harshness and beauty. Like Francine Rivers, Warner creates a novel of the human spirit's ability to conquer emotional and physical obstacles. She conveys her characters perfectly, giving them lives of their own. Readers will be waiting breathlessly for the next book in the Blood Rose trilogy."
