Tates of Texas (#2)
Victoria Thompson’s compelling love stories capture the bold passion and excitement of the Texas frontier—and the unforgettable Tate dynasty, who helped tame it. Now, in Winds of Promise, Thompson continues their fascinating legacy in a gripping story of love against the backdrop of the wild Texas terrain...
In the chaos of the Civil War, Sarah Peterson lost her beloved husband and only child, and endured seven years of captivity by the fierce Comanche. Finally freed, she returns to the only home she knows—only to find that she's just as much a prisoner of a cruel and judging society; until an unexpected champion offers her an escape to a place where her past will be unknown, and a new life... as his bride—in name only!
A marriage of convenience to the commanding Hunter Tate, and a home on his Texas ranch seems an ideal solution. But now Sarah is torn between the shame she feels for her past and the fire—and longing—that Hunter Tate inspires. What can she offer this ardent, intelligent man? Is it just possible that love can heal—and let two hot-headed people share the promise of this rough and beautiful land—and each other's hearts?
