Blush sensuality level: This is a suggestive romance (love scenes are not graphic).
She might be a red-haired beauty, but Charlotte Butterworth is a spinster by choice. She has nothing to do with men, until some ride into her yard and try to hang a man from her tree, the only tree in Two Trees, Texas. After she puts a stop to it, the sheriff places Walker Reed under Charlotte’s custody, and she soon learns she isn’t as immune to a man’s good looks and commanding masculinity as she thinks.
As for Walker, he senses the part of herself Charlotte presents to the world is nothing like the passionate woman that lays buried deep inside her. She saved his life, and he’s determined to do what he can to save her from the life she has carved out for herself. He owes her so much and wants to give her everything in his power, but the one thing he knows she needs, he can’t provide, and that is to spend his life with her.
A Blush® historical romance from Ellora’s Cave
Publisher’s Note: This book was previously published elsewhere in 1989.
If My Love Could Hold You was a sweet historical romance. This book started out in 1880 in West Texas. Charlotte lived by herself outside of town, due to tragic events of her childhood she was scared of men sexually. Even though her brother, his wife and children lived on a nearby Ranch, Charlotte took care of herself and farm. She had very no nonsense attitude about her, she was strong, stubborn, caring. When her temper got the best of her numerous times I found myself laughing out loud.
Charlotte liked her life very controlled and routine, it was until she stopped Walker Reed from Hanging. Of course it was on false assumptions that he was going to hang for. Walker was extremely confident, strong, stubborn, protective, passionate and caring! The banner between Charlotte and Walker was great to read.
This is definitely a book I recommend.
