                            A WORTHY PURSUIT

Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts.

Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan's Academy for Exceptional Youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the little girl entrusted to her care after her mother's death. Charlotte promised Lily's mother she'd keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them.

When the teacher he's after produces documentation that shows she's the little girl's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe. Is Miss Atherton villain or victim? She acts more like a loving mother than an abductress, and the children in her care clearly adore her.

Then a new danger threatens, and Charlotte is forced to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone becomes determined to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart.

JOY'S THOUGHTS ABOUT  A WORTHY PURSUIT :
I can still remember my first Karen Witemeyer story. . .have followed the releases with anticipation. Have yet to be disappointed - except when she made Neill's story a novella instead of a full length novel as she had his brothers following Short Straw Bride  ~ I am still anticipating the next Karen Witemeyer book. . .A Worthy Pursuit did NOT disappoint, continued to whet my appetite for more of these deliciously intriguing books  - with just the right amount of historical fact, humor, romance, and absolutely GREAT writing, I'll be watching for the next one!
