From the Publisher:

Sunrise Over TexasTexas Frontier, 1826
Kit Barclay followed her husband into the wilds of Texas only to be widowed. Stranded with her mother- and sister-in-law to care for, with no hope of rescue before winter sets in, Kit has only one goal: survival. So when a lone horseman appears on the horizon, and then falls from his mount in fever, Kit must weigh the safety of her family against offering aid and shelter to the handsome stranger.
Trace Watson has lost everything that ever mattered to him. Trying to forget, he heads to the frontier colony of San Felipe, not caring if he lives or dies. But when he wakes to discover he's being nursed back to health by a brave young widow, he vows to repay her kindness by guiding the three women back to civilization, no matter what the cost.
Soon, Kit and Trace are fighting the elements, Indian attacks and outlaws-as well as feelings they both thought were long buried...

My review:

This was a great, quick romance read.  Set in the wilds of Texas before it became part of the United States, the book shows how romance can blossom in the hardest of conditions, and how difficult decisions can rock those relationships.  The characters are believable and the protagonists have an honest reality to their difficult circumstances... they react like you would expect them to... despite the unexpected road blocks that fall into their paths.  It has some interesting historical quirks that appear to be well researched and gives an interesting perspective on what could have happened during that time.

As I said, this was a good, quick weekend read.  If you like Harlequin historical romances, you will find this to have  a similar flow and cadence... and it is available for download at amazon.com or directly from the publisher's website.
