"[She writes] the most powerfully moving love stories in romance today."-- Jill Barnett
About the Author
Lorraine Heath siempre sono con ser escritora. Despues de graduarse de la Universidad de Texas escribio manuales de formacion, notas de prensa, articulos y codigos de computadora, pero siempre le faltaba algo. Cuando leyo una novela romantica, no solo se enamoro del genero, sino que tambien entendio rapidamente lo que les faltaba a sus escritos: rebeldes, bribones y granujas. Desde entonces, ha estado escribiendo sobre ellos. Su obra ha sido reconocida con numerosos premios de la industria, incluido el prestigioso RITA(r) de la RWA. Sus novelas han aparecido en las listas best seller de USA Today y del New York Times.

Christian Montgomery is one of three Englishmen banished from their homeland who make their way to America. Having spent the last four years working beside his two friends and watching them fall in love and start families, Christian is resigned to bachelorhood. After making a decision and acting upon it while still in England, Christian has consigned himself to his own private hell. What better way to court death than to accept the position of
sheriff in Fortune? When his friend David Robertson comes to visit from Dallas begging an unusual favor, Christian is astounded and balks. The man wants him to give his ailing, possibly dying sister a chance at being a bride for a day. Christian's one true love died in his arms; he can never go through that devastation again. When he meets the ethereal Ashton Robertson, all of his misgivings fly out the window and his protective instincts rush to
the forefront. Knowing he is probably making the second biggest mistake of his life, Christian agrees to marry Ashton.
Ashton has faced death all of her young life. She is mortified to learn about her brother's request, but secretly thrilled when Christian Montgomery agrees to give her a wedding day. Ashton has admired and coveted Christian for her own since meeting him at her brother's home a few years before. Suffering from consumption, Ashton has no idea how much longer she has to live and can think of no better way to start facing a little bit of life than
with Christian, even if it is just for a day.
What transpires is a tender and beautiful story about one man's quest to atone for his sins by giving someone a brief glimpse at true happiness. Christian Montgomery is a true hero, strong on the outside, generous and giving on the inside. Ashton appears frail and sickly, but when faced with a frightening situation, surprises herself with an inner strength she never dreamed she possessed. The couple develops a strong bond of friendship while
trying to ignore deeper feelings that may never get the chance to blossom. It was delightful to visit with the characters from the first two books of the series, A ROGUE IN TEXAS and NEVER LOVE A COWBOY, characters that have grown and developed, and have helped to shape Christian into the man he will become. Christian also shares a poignant relationship with his twin brother, Christopher Montgomery, who finds his own happiness in this tale.
Lorraine Heath does for Texas what Nora Roberts does for Ireland. A powerful storyteller, Ms. Heath engages all of a reader's emotions and senses, immersing them thoroughly into this fast paced, gripping tale. I highly recommend NEVER MARRY A COWBOY as Lorraine Heath at her best.
In 1870, David Robertson tests the boundaries of Kit's friendship with a proposal. He wants Kit to marry his dying sister Ashton so she can have a beautiful wedding and the fond memory of man to cherish before she dies. He chooses Kit because his aristocratic English background allows room for marriages without love. However, the pain of Clarisse still lives inside Kit's gut. To his own surprise, he decides to do a far nobler thing than he ever did before and agrees to marry Ashton. As she helps him with closing the pain on his grief that he shared with no one, they fall in love. However, will he adapt to the fact that his beloved may never grow old with him or will he flee from a new set of demons?
NEVER MARRY A COWBOY is an exciting western romance that will enthrall fans of historical tales with its deep-rooted characters and powerfully descriptions of time and place. The story line is filled with action and angst as Kit adapts to going through what appears to be hell for a second time. Ashton is a warm heroine who readers will feel empathy towards and hope for the best. Sub-genre fans are most fortunate that Lorraine Heath continues to provide top-notch entertainment.
Now onto why I only gave this four stars. I was a little disappointed in Ashtons character. I was really looking forward to Kits story and expected the heroine to be stronger based upon the charachter development of Kit in the earlier stories. I also did not like how Ashton turned against Kit when he revealed his secret to her. He did what he had to, out of love for Clarissa and I was dissapointed that Ashton could not see this until she thought Kit was going to die in the shootout. I did like the secondary story involving Christopher and Elizabeth (whom you were introduced to in "A Rogue in Texas"). Other than that it was a good read and I look forward to Lorraine Heaths new book "The Outlaw and the Lady" coming in November of 2001. Heath always writes very emotional books that just make you want to cry.
