Dorothy Garlock is a Texas native living in Clear Lake, Iowa, who quit her job as a newspaper columnist and reporter at the age of 49 to write novels. She entered her first novel in a contest and lost, but she sold the book. Now, over twenty years later, she has millions of copies in print and has had her work translated into 18 languages. So many of her more than 40 books are set in the Old West that Dorothy Garlock has come to be classified as a Western Romance writer.
She is a member of the Romance Writers Hall of Fame. Popular titles include Almost Eden, The Listening Sky, and Larkspur. With Hope is a gritty, unsentimental romance set in the Great Depression. Dorothy Garlock also writes under the names Dorothy Glenn, Dorothy Philips and Johanna Phillips.
Just arrived to take a teaching position in tiny Sawyer, OK, Minnesota native Charlotte Tucker is surprised to be both annoyed by and attracted to moody, rude Owen Wallace, one of the ranch hands at the spread where she will be living. The attraction between them is mutual, but Owen is on a deadly mission of his own, and he's not about to let anyone, not even Charlie, change his mind. Still, she has to try.
Verdict: Anger, regret, and revenge are the driving forces in this action-packed story that in classic Garlock style brings 1939 rural Oklahoma to vivid life, gives readers a sweet pair of rewarding love stories, produces a villain or two, and dramatically dishes out justice. This follow-up to Stay a Little Longer should please the author's many fans. Garlock lives in Clear Lake, IA.

Charlotte Tucker has always followed her heart, and now it leads her to one of Oklahoma's largest ranches where she can teach in her very own schoolhouse. When suspicious accidents put the ranch-and lives-in jeopardy, Charlotte believes in the one man no one else trusts and asks him to help her uncover the truth. There's bad blood between the ranch owner and its newest hand, Owen Wallace, but Owen is as brave as he is caring, risking even his own dangerous secret to keep Charlotte safe. With a roiling tornado and a vengeful enemy fast closing in, Charlotte and Owen must muster every ounce of courage to make things right-and claim their heartland future together.
