Jarrett Creed: The kind of hero that most appeals -- an honorable, arrogant, handsome, well-built man's man who was strong enough to make his living as a Texas Ranger in the 1840s after having bee
Cricket annoyed the fuck out of me. If I were Creed I'd have let her punk ass die in the desert, or whatever.
Absolutely loved it! Cricket is a really intriguing heroine who starts out brash and ends up likable.
this book actually started out pretty good. i was interested in the didn't last fact,it went to crap towards the end.
Who says stag instead of deer. And why are her dogs called wolves?
Why do you call your dad by name?
I hate insults that we’ve never heard of &that sound stupid. like lobcock.
Why would you call your dad a bunch of insults?
‘I intend 2stay the capable stud I am.’
I get that their dad wanted them raised as boys, but it was so stupid how he wouldn’t let cricket wear

I always find the first book of a series a bit difficult to get totally absorbed by. This story started with the youngest of the Stewart daughters, Crickett. Crickett, is essentially a tom boy who is looking to please her father by being the son he has always wanted.

Frontier Woman by Joan Johnston is set in a fascinating period of United States history. Texas is its own country and is struggling to hold its own against the United States on one side and Mexico on the other.

There were months of misunderstandings leading to potentially dangerous situations which were a direct result of two people choosing not to be open or honest about their feelings. Maybe to some people, this is romantic. Personally, I call this book "crap."

I definitely WON'T read the second.

Written during the time when Texas was its own country.

Simply put: i loved it.

Ich habe ein Buch bei registriert!
A classic example of why I love historical western romance. A well told story with great characters, fantastic setting and palpable passion between the hero and heroine.
I enjoyed this series very much. Each book could be read as a stand alone. I happened to read them in reverse order.
Good story, I read this series backwards. This is the first of three. Cricket's story.
One of my most favourite book in the Historical romance genre
The first of her books I read and she captured heart right a way.
