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.

As usual, Karen delights readers with her charming and agreeable writing style. However, I found the dialogue between the hero and heroine overly sappy and at time trite. The plot was predictable but still reasonably entertaining.

"A Worthy Pursuit" is a wonderful story! Karen Witemeyer's charming writing style is sure to delight readers. Her historical settings are always fun, her characters are always adorable, and her plots are always engaging. "A Worthy Pursuit" is sure to have readers turning pages as the plot thickens, yet the author also offers wonderful portions that provide breathing time for the reader. This is a must read for any Karen Witemeyer fan!

Here's your spoiler-free, honest review, courtesy of Love_Legolas_111! Let's get this started. ;D
This, for the record, is the 4th book I've read by Witemeyer. Karen has a great way of spinning together a romantic journey with cute moments galore. I loved both Charlotte and Stone. They were so different from each other, almost polar opposites in their personalities, but the one thing that kept them both driven was protecting Lily. They were developed well (though Charlotte got more of the growth time). The supporting cast was decent; the best of them was definitely the three children. They were all so adorable and endearing in their own way. The plot tidied up nicely, but it was believable. All in all, a sweet read that I would recommend to romance lovers. 4 stars.
