Description

Captured by Comanche as a child, Molly Hart was assumed dead. Ten years later, Texas Ranger Matt Ryan finds a woman with the same blue eyes.

“A rousing, spicy story of long lost love in the gritty Old West. The Wren will make your pulse flutter and your heart sing.” —Ann Charles, USA Today Bestselling Author of the Award-winning Deadwood Mystery Series

Ten years have passed since Molly Hart’s ranch was attacked, her folks murdered and she was abducted. Now, at nineteen, she’s finally returning home to North Texas after spending the remainder of her childhood with a tribe of Kwahadi Comanche. What she finds is a deserted home coated with dust and the passage of time, the chilling discovery of her own gravesite, and the presence of a man she thought never to see again.

Matt Ryan is pushed by a restless wind to the broken-down remains of the Hart ranch. Recently recovered from an imprisonment that nearly ended his life, the drive for truth and fairness has all but abandoned him. For ten years he faithfully served the U.S. Army and the Texas Rangers, seeking justice for the brutal murder of a little girl, only to find closure and healing beyond his grasp. Returning to the place where it all began, he’s stunned to encounter a woman with the same blue eyes as the child he can’t put out of his mind.

A steamy historical western romance set in 1877 Texas.

    Thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope to read more but can't afford to pay the $3.99. Do they ever go on sale?

    Heartfelt sincere emotions, true love among many. Unexpected twists and turns. An HEA and you will have to read all. I will. A rough tough man and woman bound from their youth to be together. Extraordinary supporting characters. Loved it, and that should mean something, I've read hundreds of books. It's what I do.

    Wren is a story following a young lady who was abducted as a child. Stolen from her abductors by Indians and eventually sold back into the white world where they had bought her dead; acceptance of her past was not accepted by all. Through this entire ordeal, all she is s looking for are answers.

    Oh my gosh! This is one of THE best books (series) I’ve read in a long time. I absolutely couldn’t put it down. The characters were flawless and realistic. The story was well told and kept me wanting more. It was funny, sexy, sad and exciting and threw me into every emotion including anger!! It could be a mini series or a movie and I’d still want more, more, more!!!!! Well done! GSW

    This could easily be a true story about love and survival. It is a wonderful story that keeps your attention, with characters that appear totally genuine. I want to continue reading more about more from this author.

    Heartwarming tale. The story had me spellbound from start to the ending. I couldn't wait to find who was actually behind the killing of Hart and his wife.

    What a delightful find! The characters are gritty and relatable, the plot thick and the writing suberb! Turn the first page and you are sucked in. I am so excited to have found Kristy Mccaffery's work. Looking forward to reading the whole series!
