Overview

She escapes a life of uncertainty…

After her gambler father is murdered over a card game, Rachel Garrett joins a wagon train West to be with her aunt and the fiancé she's never met. All she wants is to forget her life of performing on stage to earn the money her father gambled away and to settle down in one place. But along the trail she is helplessly drawn to a priest—forbidden fruit—and her faith is shattered.

He's running from a murder he did not commit…

With his life at stake, successful gambler Reno Hunter joins a wagon train West disguised as a priest. He is shocked to find aboard the woman he won when her father wagered her in that fateful card game, the same man Reno is accused of killing. Can he protect his identity as long as she doesn't know who he is, or will he give in to his desire for the woman and risk being apprehended by the law?

    An Enjoyable Read

    Reviewed By~JoAnne
    Review Copy Provided By~Publisher

    This was an easy and fun read that starts on a riverboat in Missouri and ends in San Francisco, California after Rachel and Reno, who do not know each other, make their way west as part of a wagon train. There were a lot of twists and turns to the story that kept you engrossed and interested - never knowing what would happen next in some cases while in other situations you could guess the outcome. The love that evolved and that Rachel and Reno shared after many disagreements, stolen kisses and not realizing who the other one was, was something neither one wanted to admit to happening. It took until the end of the book for them to finally acknowledge their love for each other although neither still wanted to admit it to the other. Reno's brothers who were the scouts on the ride west gave the book some of its humorous aspects. The wagon train and places they spoke of were based on reality and you could feel yourself on the trail with them with all the heat, work, and determination they showed. The book had humor, lots of angst and was steamy in parts. It was not at all what I would have expected Rachel's behavior to be from someone who was crossing the country to first meet her fiance and then marry him. The book had several happily ever afters and great closure due to the inclusion of the epilogue. I have not read books by this author before but look forward to reading others.

    Favorite Quote: ...Tears swam in her eyes. "I'm on my way to San Francisco to marry a decent man." She assumed he was or her aunt wouldn't have arranged the marriage. "He's not a gambler and isn't running from the law."

    He worked his mouth into a tight frown...When Reno rested a hand over her to still their mindless occupation, she felt an overwhelming joy from his tender touch.
