Tates of Texas (#1)Victoria Thompson's vivid romances have brought pioneer Texas to life with heart-pounding action and lush passion. The first book in the Tates of Texas series, Wild Texas Wind, introduces the Tates-a family that shaped and upheld the legacy of the majestic Lone Star state.After seven years as a Comanche captive, Rebekah Tate has only a faint hope that she'll ever see her beloved childhood home again. That is, until the day tall and dangerously handsome trader Sean MacDougal strides into camp and proceeds to risk his life rescuing her. Rebekah can only guess his reasons: could he be looking for glory-or a reward from her wealthy father? One thing she does know: no one is more stubborn than this rugged, self-made man. And no one else has a touch that warms her on cool desert nights, and makes her wonder how, together, the two of them might forge a new life out of a harsh and powerful land.
