Vintage Teaser Tuesday: Her Prairie Knight



“I love the wild, where I can ride and ride, and never meet a human being—where I can dream and dally and feast my eyes on a landscape man has not touched. I have lived most of my life in New York, and I love nature so well that I'm inclined to be jealous of her.”


***

Something in Beatrice's throat ached cruelly. It was the truth, and she knew it. He did love her, and the love of a brave man is not a thing to be thrust lightly aside. But it demanded such a lot in return! More, perhaps, than she could give. A love like that—a love that gives everything—demands everything in return. Anything less insults it.



When Eastern society girl Beatrice “Trix” Lansell arrives in Montana for a visit with her brother, she is swept off her feet by the majestic, rugged beauty of the land, by the simplicity and satisfaction of ranch life, and by a handsome cowboy named Keith Cameron. I loved Trix so much I had to share two teasers for her. I just fell in love with Bower's sassy dialogue, rich characters, and gorgeous poetic narrative. Bower lived in Montana at the turn of the 20th century, and she used her real life experiences to craft authentic novels that the Western-loving public couldn't get enough of. And Her Prairie Knight can still hold its own with today's Western romances: There's plenty of conflict as corporations start buying up the free range, plenty of excitement and danger from the elements and criminals, and of course, plenty of romance as a New York socialite and a ruggedly noble cowpuncher fall in love.
