Product Description

Product Description

He was the wrong man for the job in every way but one . . .

Grayson Rhodes, the illegitimate son of a duke, heads to America to prove his worth and earn his fortune. But post-Civil War Texas seems more like hell than a land of opportunity, especially when he finds himself working the cotton fields of no-nonsense Abbie Westland. Abbie, with her fiery determination, is wildly different from the fragile beauties Grayson knew at home . . . but there is a tender yearning he can see just below her tough exterior.

Abbie works her fingers to the bone day-in and day-out, and she needs the help of a few good farmhands. Though skeptical of the polished Englishman when he arrives, she soon discovers a man with a resolve to succeed that matches her own. As the long, hot days turn to heated, passionate nights, they dare to dream of a future together.

Synopsis

Leaving London's suffocating high society to seek his fortune in America, Grayson Rhodes, the maverick son of a duke, discovers a new life for himself in the arms of Abbie Westland, a beautiful young Texas rancher.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great romance,poignant and moving 25 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1865, a cunning American entices several English aristocrats to come to America where he informs them that fortune awaits them. Among the group is Grayson, the bastard son of a Duke, who raised him in his home, but left the lad feeling worthless. When they arrive in Fortune, Texas, they learn that they are to work in the cotton fields owned by women, whose males, for the most part, died in the war. Widow Abigail Westland, mother of three (Lydia, Johnny, and Micah), thinks these nobles are worthless, which leaves Grayson irate and wanting to prove her wrong. She draws him as her worker.

Grayson immediately shows his value when he suggests to Johnny that, as the man of the house, he sit in his deceased father's chair at the dinner table. A proud Johnny does this and Abigail begins reassessing Grayson. In turn, Grayson is overwhelmed by Abigail's zeal to survive. When his companions (Kit and Harry) suggest they immediately leave, he says no. He also observed Johnny's pride and it has touched his heart; he wants to feel the same pride. Grayson and Abigail begin to fall in love. However, can a lasting relationship be forged between an upper class English snob and a single American mom whose pride is in the dirt?

A ROGUE IN TEXAS is a warm blending of Victorian England and Post Civil War Texas. The story line is tender and poignant as the horrors of the Civil War are brought home via the families left behind to toil the soil. Grayson and Abigail make a beautiful couple, but their pasts seem like major deterrents to any future. Lorraine Heath writes a heart- wrenching historical romance that will receive much reader acclaim.

Lorraine Heath - Rogues In Texas Series' Books are:

Rogue in Texas (Grayson's Story)
Never Love a Cowboy (Harry's Story)
Never Marry a Cowboy (Kit's Story)

Background for Rogue in Texas:

Grayson and his friends, Harry and Kit, are among several Englishmen (rogues, if you will) who agreed to travel to America in the hopes of making their fortunes. Actually, the book indicates they were sent there by their fathers due to the fact they weren't making anything of their lives in England. I suppose they could have refused but they didn't so now they are in the Texas cotton fields expected to help a group of mostly women bring in the cotton harvest. The reason it is mostly women is because so many men have died in the Civil War.

The cotton fields actually belong to John and Abbie Westland. Unfortunately, John was lost to the war and now Abbie, the young mother of three children, finds herself in charge of making sure the cotton fields thrive and that they make the most of the cotton harvest. Abbie was married to John at age 16 because her parents had 11 children and they needed to get some kids out of the house. John was quite a few years older than Abbie and he mostly cared about the land and either didn't care enough or didn't know how to show Abbie any love.

Grayson is the bastard son of a Duke and has never known what it feels like to be loved or wanted. His father did allow him to live in the ducal home and made sure Grayson had a good education but all of his life, he has been treated like he is "less than" other people. Although he was the eldest son of the duke, his younger half-brother will inherit the dukedom because he is the legitimate son.
