Sundancer tells the story of Roxanna Fallon, a Union spy on the run from a dangerous Confederate officer. When her best friend, heiress Alexa Hunt, is killed, she assumes her identity and continues on to complete a marriage to a railroad baron arranged by Alexa's grandfather. On the way, her stagecoach is attacked by Cheyenne Indians, and she is captured and taken for ransom. Alexa's grandfather hires Cain, a formidable and well-known gunslinger who is also half Cheyenne, to rescue her.
Terms of Love
Their situation is complicated when they realize she was engaged to Cain's white half-brother, and that her wedding was little more than part of a plot between two railroad tycoons at war with each other. When Alexa is rejected by her fiance, Cain offers to marry her instead, creating impassioned conflict between the two brothers. Cain must also come to terms with his racial heritage while he and Alexa struggle to thwart the many forces arrayed against them.
Though the intricate plot makes the story difficult to follow, it also "makes the narrative rich and evocative," commented a contributor to Publishers Weekly. Kathe Robin, reviewing the book on the Romantic Times Web site, remarked: A mother's matchmaking for her daughter backfires in an unexpected way in Rebel Baron.
Civil War -veteran Brandon Caruthers returns to Kentucky after the war, only to find that his ancestral home has been destroyed. An unexpected inheritance leads him to England, where he has hopes of marrying a generous heiress and creating a successful racehorse operation.
Disappointingly, his British inheritance consists of nothing more than a run-down country house desperately in need of repair, and the title of Baron Rushcroft. Brandon then receives an unusual business proposition from wealthy widow Miranda Auburn: Brandon agrees, but as he attempts to woo Lori, he finds that he is much more interested in the confident and business-savvy Miranda. She thinks she is too old for him, but Brandon is persistent, and long-suppressed emotions begin to stir again as their fledgling relationship is complicated by kidnapping, danger, and mysterious events.
