Somewhere in the lush grasslands of the Texas hill country, three brothers and a sister fight to hold their family together, struggle to keep their ranch solvent, while they await the return of the one person who can shed light on the secrets of the past. Abby learned to ride and rope and wrangle as well as any of her brothers, but Major Jonah Tremain is looking for a lady. Abby tells herself she doesn’t care that the major is engaged to a proper Eastern-bred miss, but when she looks into his searing blue eyes and feels his lips against hers, she decides to teach him the error of his ways only a Texas wildcat can do justice to passion such as his, and she plans to match him kiss for kiss.

Why Moon Racer?

This is such a beautiful yet old school cover (and yes I have a weakness for those) and this book is on KU if you have that subscription. I used to read this author all the time and really enjoyed her. She writes fun old style westerns but simply this cover is so appealing in so many ways. I love the pose against the tree, and the horses running in the backdrop. All the colors are blended together so beautifully.

About Constance O'Banyon

Evelyn Gee was born on 1939 in Texas, USA. She makes her home in San Antonio with her husband, Jim and their son, Jason.

She signed her novels as Constance O'Banyon. She also wrote as Micah Leigh with Texan writer Emma Merritt. Her books range from historical to contemporary and include several novellas. Many of her books have been published in trade paperback.Among her many awards, she is the recipient of the 1996 Romantic Times Career Achievement Award. There are eight million copies of her books in print.

She says: "I have always loved history, and I loved storytelling — it was only natural that I would one day put them both together. I must have lived in another life and time, because when I write, I can almost feel I was there. My favorite part of writing is the research. Whenever possible, I will go to the place I am writing about to walk the land and smell the air."
