Book Description

From the cradle, Lizzy Kemble had the powerful sense that she didn’t belong in her family’s notorious Texas empire.

Her desire for land-grabbing Cole Knight, embittered son of the neighbouring rancher, proved her right. Her daddy had done everything possible to turn her into a proper Kemble – all the way to leaving his vast Golden Spurs Ranch in her hands after he fell victim to a stroke.

But when her father’s death turns out to be murder, Lizzy knows someone is willing to kill to claim the Kemble wealth…and she’s next on the hit list. With the Golden Spurs at risk, she’s fighting back…but who is the enemy? The enigmatic Cole? Her cut-throat family?

Caught in a high-stakes game of win, lose or die, Lizzy is forced to gamble her ranch, her heart, her very life for the truth behind the Golden Spurs.

“No one provides hotter emotional fireworks than the fiery Ann Major. ” —Romantic Times

3.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Suspense 20 Oct. 2004
By AK - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For longer than anyone alive can recall - the Knights and Kembles have been at odds. As far as the Knights are concerned, the Kembles are thieves, having stolen their land. Yet, Cole Knight is the thief, stealing young Lizzie Kemble's heart at an early age, then breaking it by marrying her sister, Mia. Now that Mia is dead and Lizzie back home to run the family business after her father's unexpected death, Cole is a major figure in her life, but is he protector or killer? Both will have to face their long buried emotions and secrets that have haunted their families to get to the truth and to have a future.

*** Like Joan Johnston's books, the plot draws readers in using classic family feuds crossed by romance and murder. Much is familiar, but nonetheless, classics are called that because they are always welcome and good. If a book can be called both sweet and racy, then this fits the bill. ***

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable contemporary romance 29 Sept. 2004
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For one-hundred and forty years the Knights and Kembles have feuded. However, now there is no doubt that the Kembles have won as they cheated the Knights out their last acres and formed the Golden Spurs International Agra business. Cole Knight lives for revenge especially since his brother Shanghai found proof of the illegal actions of the Texas royal family (the Bush crowd are spread out), but vanished before he could use his evidence.

Eleven years later widower Cole had married Mia Kemble, but she died in a plane crash. His marriage failed to satiate his thirst for revenge. Mia's sister leaves New York to care for her infant niece. There she runs into Cole, who she loved as a teen, but he chose her older sister. As they begin to fall in love, someone uses blackmail and murder, threatening to expose Lizzy's matriarchy to one and all. Only Cole can keep her and his daughter safe, but does he really want to protect a Kemble even if he loves her while she wonders if she should trust a Knight with her heart and her life?

This enjoyable contemporary romance is filled with characters who have doubts about the direction their lives are going. Lizzy is an intriguing lead who happens to be her daddy's favorite although she is the one who seems more in place in New York than on a Texas ranch. However, the tale evolves around Cole, who must choose between the woman he loves and his need for vengeance. Though the suspense adds salsa, THE GIRL WITH THE GOLDEN SPUR belongs to the dynamic duo.

1.0 out of 5 stars What in the world did I pick up at the library? 29 Dec. 2005
By Jules Rosewood - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is horrible and a waste of time. The prologue begins with promise but after page 29, you're in for pages of outlandish dialogue (If Cole said "Lizzy, Oh. Lizzy" one more time...); a chronologically challenged story line (I felt like I was reading the second book in the series rather than the first); and overall poor writing. Toward the middle of the book, I started skimming and even that was a waste of time. Now I see why All About Romance gave 3 of Ms. Major's previous books Fs. That's definitely what The Girl with the Golden Spurs deserves.

Thanks again to Ann Major for bringing to life another fantastic story! This one was a "can't put it down" type of book with an unbelieveable ending! Awesome reading!
