Unspoiled but extremely rich, 15-year-old Sunny Landers shares a
dream with her father, Bo, to build a transcontinental railroad across
the vast Rockies. Sunny's brothers Stuart and Vince have opposing
views. Sunny attends each and every board meeting and knows
more about the business than her brothers do and is very business
In THUNDER ON THE PLAINS, Bo hires a ruggedly handsome half-Cherokee
who can communicate with the Indians to guide their wagon train from
Omaha to Fort Laramie. The 20-year-old Colt Travis is more
experienced and tougher than any other applicants for the job.
Protecting them through many perils including saving Sunny's life
twice, has drawn the respect of her father for this young man, but
not to the extent that he intends to let him become involved with his
daughter. If only his daughter felt the same. Stretching over the
course of years, the love they feel is denied and tested. Bo dies and
Sunny becomes heir to the Landers dynasty and a fierce adversary
in a world of men. Through all the years she has only wanted one
man that is not to be hers.
I started reading this wonderful book by Rosanne Bittner with no
intention of doing it all in one sitting, but that's exactly what
happened. I was so spellbound with the excitement and tragedy
dealt to both these young people searching for real love, that I

the Wild West and Indians molds Colt Travis into a man desperate
for love, and provides a stimulating and terrific read.
Sunny Landers is a strong, warm-hearted woman intent to lead, and
one you can't help but fall in love with. THUNDER ON THE PLAINS was truly an
and romantic tale that will take you on a wild and beautiful
adventure like no other.

IN A LAND OF OPPORTUNITY
Sunny Landers wants a big life-as big and free as the untamed land that stretches before her. Land she will
help her father conquer to achieve his dream of a transcontinental railroad. She won't let a cold, creaky wagon,
murderous bandits or stampeding buffalo stand in her way. She wants it all-including Colt Travis.
ALL THE ODDS WERE AGAINST THEM
Like the land of his birth, half–Cherokee Colt Travis is wild, hard, and dangerous. He is a drifter, a wilderness
scout with no land and no prospects hired by the Landers family to guide their wagon train. He knows Sunny is
out of his league and her father would never approve, but beneath the endless starlit sky, anything seems
