Why do I have it? I like historical romance and Kathryn Albright is a new author for me.

For my #1 challenge (Read a Western), I read The Rebel and the Lady by Kathryn Albright. Victoria Torrez is on the run from Santa Anna's forces as they invade Texas. To protect Victoria, her parents have sent her to live with her cousins Juan and Diego. While helping at the local hospital and secretly helping the rebels, Victoria meets Jake Dumont who is searching for his brother.

Jake has never understood why his brother wanted to fight for Texas so badly. In his mind, land was just not worth dying for. He had come from Charleston to drag his brother back home. Jake had never expected to meet such a highborn lady of quality as Victoria Torrez, or to find that such a lady could fall for a drifter like him. Jake would find that each person had his or her own reason for fighting for the freedom of Texas.

I have never read a Western before, they were not really my type. However, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and give it a B+!

B+! - (89-94%)
