Joan Johnston. Dell, $7.99 mass market (432p) ISBN 978-0-345-52746-2
Johnston follows Texas Bride with a romance set in the harsh territory of post–Civil War Wyoming. Shortly after 17-year-old Hannah McMurtry's new husband dies from cholera, she and her sisters are attacked by Sioux warriors who injure Hannah's twin, Hetty, and abduct 15-year-old Josie. Hannah, two months pregnant, walks for days to get help and is rescued by Flint Creed, a handsome rancher in love with his brother's fiancée. Desperate for distraction, he asks Hannah to marry him, and she reluctantly agrees. Threats from a local rancher and the ever-present danger of life in the wilds of Wyoming add intensity to this fast-moving novel as Flint and Hannah navigate the trials of newlywed life while sending a Pinkerton detective to look for Hannah's sisters. Johnston's effortless storytelling blends romance with dramatic tension, historical accuracy, and a touch of humor. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (Jan.)
