Texas Ranger Travis McMurray feels more at home hunting down outlaws than socializing with family and neighbors. When he reluctantly escorts his young sister, Sage, to a dance, he sets in motion a life-altering chain of events. Intrigued by Rainey, the tiny sprite who steals his horse, but wounded by outlaws before he can track her down, he is slowly recuperating at the family ranch when he receives a letter from her that makes him smile for the first time in months. As their correspondence continues, he comes to realize that Rainey may be in danger, and he sets off for Austin to find her, accompanied by Sage and young Duck, an orphan rescued from the outlaw camp. Thomas, well known for her extraordinary sense of place, realistic characters, and fast-paced multilayered plots, has penned another colorful, emotionally intense keeper in the genre of western historical romance, and launched a new series named after the McMurray family ranch, Whispering Mountain.
