Readers, get your fans! Ronda Thompson gives us a sensual tale with a gripping plot driven by strong characters.
Camile Cordell had something to prove. If only her father would giver her a chance, she would show him she could run the Circle C ranch as well as any man. Her need drives her to rope, ride, wrangle, cheat and cuss as good as any cowhand, earning her the reputation as the Prickly Pear of the Texas Panhandle. There wasn't a man around who dared to tame her--until Wade Langtry burst upon the scene.
Wade drove a spike into her dreams by taking on the job as foreman of the Circle C. Furious with her father and Wade, Camile works and schemes even harder to gain control of her land, but now she has a new problem. Wade has stirred within her strange feelings and a woman's passion, and now she must fight this too. However, Wade is as determined as she is to accomplish his goal, and when these two clash sparks fly!
This is a very well written story that grips the reader's attention. The only place I drifted was a section toward the end where the events between Wade and Camile were summarized in detail...this part might have been better served if shortened a bit. Otherwise, I wouldn't trade a thing, it's a definite keeper!

But Wade wasn't one to be bested, especially not by a woman in men's clothing. He would gain control of the ranch and sell it off to the men back East who had sent him to the Circle C in the first place. But he hadn't bargained on Camile "Cam" Cordell, and he certainly never bargained for the surge of desire he found himself feeling for her.
Through harrowing, life threatening escapades, Cam and Wade fought one another and the feelings they felt for one another. But deceit and a foolhardy move could cost them both that which they hold most dear. And only the truth can save them.
Ms. Thompson has written a marvelous story of Texas history with "Prickly Pear". A fast paced read full of wit and sensitivity, this one is sure to please.
