Audra Tadlock is bored with life in Hopeville, Texas, until she befriends handsome photographer McKenna Smith, who brings more excitement than she bargains for. Being kidnapped and traipsing across the countryside looking for her thought-to-be-dead brother is not the adventure she had in mind.

Nothing is as important to McKenna as receiving a pardon from the State of Texas. His luck changes for the better when he recognizes Audra, the twin sister of the man who shot him. But falling in love with the one person who can exonerate Smith may prevent him from winning his freedom.

Will the search for Audra’s brother bring him the independence he desires or will she imprison his heart with her love?


Review: I’m a big fan of westerns, cowboys, outlaws, and historicals, so I was quite excited to read this book. It had all of those elements and more. Ms. Rogers has created a story that is not long in length, full of vibrantly created characters, and a story line that pulls you to the heart of another era.

I am in love with McKenna! His character was so wonderfully created. I loved the way he was portrayed. His background was not the best and he was trying his best to redeem himself. That really pulled at my heart! And when he went against the law and did something crazy, well, let’s just say I had a wonderful time watching as his heart changed!

Audra. What can I say about her? She’s a stubborn little filly for sure! I enjoyed watching her come to terms with her feelings and seeing her with McKenna. There was definitely a spark from the beginning that grew as the story went on and I loved it!

And the Buchanans? Well, they were PERFECT for their roles! I didn’t like them, but I knew they had to be created to make the story full of the twists it had. Definitely great characters!

If you love books filled with a touch of romance, twists, and wonderfully chiseled characters, Ms. Rogers’ MCKENNA’S WOMAN is one that shouldn’t be missed! I am definitely a new fan of Ms. Rogers and can’t wait to read more! Well done!
