Luke's Runaway Bride

A novel by

Cheyenne, a late 19th-century frontier town, serves as the backdrop for Bridges's galloping romantic suspense. Shortly after leaving a party celebrating her engagement to Daniel Kincaid, one of Denver's finest citizens, Jenny Eriksen and her companion, Olivia Gibson, are kidnapped by a "hotheaded cowboy" who claims he needs them to accompany him for just 36 hours. Still in their ball gowns, Jenny and Olivia endure a grueling boxcar ride to Cheyenne, where Jenny gradually learns the truth about her abductor, Luke McLintock, and her fianc . Luke and Daniel grew up together, and now Luke is on a mission to force Daniel to acknowledge Adam, the son he fathered with a Mexican woman. Although the five-year-old is now an orphan, Daniel refuses to acknowledge his moral lapse and instead sends his henchman to eliminate Luke and re-abduct Jenny. Sternly closing her heart against her feelings for Luke, a perpetual loner, Jenny nevertheless embraces Adam. It's a natural step, albeit one filled with spirited conflicts, for Luke and Jenny to realize that they can provide a loving home for Adam. Bridges (The Doctor's Homecoming) is comfortable in her western setting, and her characters' humorous sparring make this boisterous mix of romance and skullduggery an engrossing read.
