Publisher's Description

A teacher on the run. A bounty hunter in pursuit. Can two enemies learn to trust each other before they both lose what they hold most dear?

Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts.

Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan's Academy for Exceptional Youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the orphaned girl entrusted to her care. Charlotte promised Lily's mother she'd keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them.

When Miss Atherton produces documentation that shows her to be Lily's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe. Is she villain or victim?

Then a new danger forces Charlotte to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone vows to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart.

    I absolutely loved reading this book. Karen's books are my favorites to read and this one was no different. Start to finish it had enough action, drama and romance. Love the happy endings.

    This review was written for A Worthy Pursuit - eBook.
    Yes, I really like Karen's books and I really like this one as well. When she writes a story she just pulls you right in and doesn't let you go, you don't want to put the book down. This comes highly recommended from me.

    This story had me wishing for my very own Stone Hammond! A Worthy Pursuit had me tickled from the very beginning and the romance was very sweet!! I work at a local library in my hometown and we have all of Ms. Witemeyer's books in our collection and every chance I get I recommend her novels.

    I have read many of Karen Witemeyer's books. She is an excellent writer. Her books always leave me wanting more. But this book is by far my favorite. And of course I wanted the story to continue. Maybe she will write a sequel.

    You will not be disappointed, except that it ends.

    Whenever I pick up a book by Karen Witemeyer I know I am in for a treat. A Worthy Pursuit easily falls into that category. Witemeyer has a way of making you love her characters. She is great at throwing in twists and turns. And she is always making me long for more. I couldnt put the book down. And yet I wasnt ready to say good-bye to these amazing characters. Im really hoping that this isnt all weve seen of them.

    Charlotte Athertons life is about to be totally different then she imagined. She went from being headmistress to being on the run. Being on the run wasnt in her plans, but she will do anything to protect Lily. Lilys mom trusted Charlotte to protect her daughter, and Charlotte will do anything necessary to keep her promise. Life finally seems to be getting back to normal when Stone shows up. Stone is on a mission, and he wont let a pretty woman keep him from completing it.

    Stone is the best retriever around these parts and has a reputation to keep. When Charlotte appeals to him, he agrees to hear her side of the story. Stone can see she loves the kids, and is finding it hard to believe she would hurt them. He was told one thing, but is seeing a totally different story. Can Stone find out the truth before its too late? I couldnt help but fall in love with Stone right away. He is swoon-worthy in every way possible. Can Charlotte resist such perfection?

    I was taken on an adventure and loved every minute of it. There was suspense, and romance mixed together for the perfect recipe. You wont regret taking the time to read this book. And I have a feeling it will be as hard for you to put down as it was for me. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Historical fiction. I received a copy of this book from Bethany House and Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions expressed are my own.
