In a prequel to her best-selling The Cowboy, Johnston sweeps us back to the Republic of Texas in the 1840s and into the lives of the early Creeds. Texas Ranger Jarrett Creed and Creighton "Cricket" Stewart (another strong heroine, incidentally) fight for their new republic and struggle to forge a lasting marriage in the process. First published in 1988 as part of her "Sisters of the Lone Star" trilogy and out of print for some time, Frontier Woman will be of particular interest to fans of Johnston's current "Bitter Creek" series, which continues the story of the Creeds into the present. Johnston is a New York Times best-selling writer and lives in Florida.

The next day, Cricket learns that her prisoner is Texas Ranger Jarrett Creed, who regained the stolen horses from the Comanche. As Cricket and Creed fight and squabble they begin to fall in love. However, he wants someone more feminine and she wants no man in her life. However the catalyst of a deadly conspiracy hangs over their heads and when the Comanche captures Cricket, it makes them both reassess their values.
FRONTIER WOMAN is a reprint of a novel from the late 1980s miniseries starring the ancestors of the modern day Bitter Creek tales. The enticing story line remains fresh as Joan Johnston instills problems for her hero and heroine (i.e., a cramping period while riding) that seem genuine while providing a taste of the Lone Star Republic. Fans of the Bitter Creek books will want to read this novel as well as the upcoming reprints that tell the stories of Cricket's two sisters.
While the youngest was "the brat in buckskins" she didn't know any different and I loved her fiesty nature. It was a hoot. Sister Bay was the gentle gal, and Sloan the heir apparent so Cricket could be as outrageous as she chose, except that her father now decided she should marry..whoops. The middle of the book drags and though the writing is good, having Cricket "made into a lady" gets a bid tedious and demeaning. I really liked the characters and enjoyed much of the dialogue. It just didn't make the overall quality that I expect from this author. (Pick up the bodyguard, the bridegroom, the texan and several others instead of this one!!)
I suffer from an unreasonable need to finish any book that I start but this one presented one of the greatest challenges of my 50+ years. The writing was amateurish, the story was pure drek and the sentiments were insulting to all people everywhere.
