The train to Garber, Texas, is supposed to bring life's next victory to Nicholas Lovelace. Instead, it gets held up by robbers who are thwarted by the last person Nick ever expected--Anne Tillerton from back home in Prairie Lea.
Anne's been hiding away as a buffalo hunter. She's
only in town to find their runaway cook, but the woman flees--leaving
Anne with her infant son. With Nick the only person Anne knows in town,
the two form an unlikely team as they try to figure out what to do with
But being in town means acting and dressing for
polite society--and it's not going well for Anne. Meanwhile, Nick's work
is bringing new pressures, and being seen with a rough-around-the-edges
woman isn't helping his reputation. Caught between their own dreams, a
deepening relationship, and others' expectations, can the pair find
their way to love?
This is the story of Annie, girl on a mission, running from her past, only to find herself on a train that has been robbed. Then there is Nick who happens to be on the same train. It doesn't take Nick long to become smitten by this young woman.
A wonderful light read, for those that love historical romance. This would be a good novel to read this summer.
