Review:

Setting: Beaumont, Texas, 1911

Sensuality: 7

Beautiful Evelyn Thurgood-Baron is the sole heiress to the Baron Oil fortune and has had 26 years of ladylike, rigidly proper upbringing. She longs to kick over the traces and experience travel and adventure but her father has other plans. When he announces that he's negotiated an engagement for her as part of a lucrative business deal, Evelyn packs a bag and runs away, posing as a ladies' maid to board the Lone Star Limited.

Falsely accused of murder and chasing the only man who can exonerate him, New Orleans police lieutenant Luke Deveraux boards the Lone Star Limited disguised as a woman. Neither Evelyn nor Luke has time to adjust to their new identities before danger forces them to jump from the train and shed their costumes. Then fate pairs them in a race across Texas that has them hiding from the police, private detectives, and bandits. Neither of them is prepared for the attraction that daily grows stronger between them, but if they survive their dangerous journey, is there any hope for a future between an heiress to millions and a New Orleans cop?

The turn-of-the-century setting of The Runaway Heiress is rich with colorful detail in a plot that contains one hair-raising, life-threatening scene after another, supported by a hero and heroine strong enough to survive and thrive despite the danger. Don't miss this wonderfully romantic historical. --Lois Faye Dyer
