Sexual Content: Rated PG-13 11 Feb. 2001
By Tina Engler Keen - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Set in Texas following the Civil War, Rebecca Wade's latest tells us the story of a quirky wanna-be actress and a vigilante lawman destined to tame her. If you enjoy smiling and love a poignant romance, A Wanted Woman is the book for you.
Wren Bradley has been in love with Cord Caldwell since she was a little girl. At the age of sixteen after sharing a few dances and conversations with the legendary tracker, she finally gets up the nerve to profess her feelings to him, naively believing that he returns them. Cord, however, is nine years her senior and much to Wren's chagrin and embarrassment, he doesn't see her in a romantic light at all. Moritifed, she vows never again to do something so foolish as to give away her heart and determines never to set eyes on Cord Caldwell again.
Flash forward five years: Wren's family is pressuring her into marrying Edward, a sweet man she's known since childhood, but one that she unfortunately harbors no romantic feelings toward. Wren is dead set on becoming an actress instead, a profession that thoroughly scandalizes her upperclass parents. One night after sneaking out to watch a play at the local theater, Wren accidentally lands smack dab in the middle of a showdown between an infamous train robber and a lawman who is none other than one Cord Caldwell.
Cord can't believe that this is the same little girl whose heart he hated shattering five years past. She has changed unbelievably, having transformed from a gawky little girl into a beautiful woman. He knows that Wren is off limits to him for her father happens to be Cord's boss, but when he's given the assignment of watching over the Bradley's youngest girl he can only hold back his feelings for so long. The problem is, will Wren be able to fall inlove with him again after the way he hurt her when she was a young girl?
As my three-year-old daughter would say, "well DUH"! Cord is strong, sexy, masculine, and amusing...what woman wouldn't be able to fall for him twice? I appreciate the way Wade handles the situation, not making it so the heroine holds a grudge against the hero until the bitter end, most especially considering the fact that we're talking about an incident that happened when Wren was only sixteen.
Aside from the well developed chemistry between the lead characters, what I enjoyed most about this romantic romp is the heroine herself. She is spunky, funny, quirky, and undeniably lovable. You have no doubts that a man like Cord has fallen fast and furiously for her because as a reader you've pretty much fallen for her yourself. Since many romance authors pen heroines to be little more than thoughtless wallpaper contrasted against larger than life heroes, I am definitely a sucker for any novel with a spunky female lead.
Overall, I'd say this is a solid romance and a fun read well worth the few dollars and few hours investment. I'll definitely be waiting to see what Wade comes up with next.

An enjoyable book to read 15 Sept. 2002
By Angela Wood - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book was filled with enjoyable characters. Wren is an amusing spirited woman who knows what she wants. She goes after her dream and want to follow her acting in the theater. She is tired of doing what others want her to do or be. She defies her parents and takes acting lessons. Cord, an old friend of the family, guards her while proving to others and himself of his innocence of a suspended case. They fight off their feelings for each other yet, of course, they find themselves together full of love and support. I found books similar to this book, yet I found it a little unique and full of spirit.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book has everything--a delicious hero, a spunky but likable heroine, and tons of heart-wrenching emotion. I'm not generally a lover of Westerns, but this one made me a convert. I'll be reading more of Rebecca Wade's Westerns for sure!

For lovers of western romance 7 Nov. 2000
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1872 Dallas, sixteen year old Wren Bradley, daughter of his boss the Colonel, throws herself at Pinkerton agent Cord Caldwell informing him she loves him. As gently as he can, Cord tells Wren he has no romantic feelings towards her. As he leaves with another woman, a humiliated Wren vows to never make a fool of herself over a man again, especially this hunk of a male.

Five years later, Pinkerton has suspended Cord with his only hope of redemption capturing train robber Lloyd Sackett, the man who destroyed his life. Cord traps Sackett until an innocent woman walks between them and becomes the criminal's hostage. Sackett, with the help of an accomplice, escapes harming no one. When informed of his daughter's escapade and his agent's disregard of his suspension, the Colonel realizes he can kill two birds with one stone by assigning Cord to watch over his daring daughter. However, the Colonel never expected to play matchmaker between his best agent and his beloved daughter.

The potential that Rebecca Wade showed in her debut novel, AN UNLIKELY OUTLAW, blooms with this vigorous, engaging western romance. The story line is exciting, filled with non-stop action that increases from the beginning scene, and is loaded with increasingly heated passion between the two lead characters. Following this novel, readers will make Ms. Wade A WANTED WOMAN as the demand for more tales like this enticing story will be very high.
