Overview

Someone is trying to kill Lynne Tremaine. After her father sentences two members of The Briscoe Boys gang to death, Judge Tremaine feels he has no choice but to send Lynne to Denver City along the Oregon Trail to live with her Uncle George...against her will. For Lynne, the only thing worse than being sent away to the wild west is making the journey with the handsome, arrogant, wicked man her uncle has hired to escort her. Especially when the anger she feels toward him begins to turn to something hotter.

Cade Lawson is determined to prove himself to his employer, George Tremaine, after letting him down months earlier. But what he thought would be his second chance may, in fact, be a harsh punishment for his past mistakes. Lynne is headstrong, fiery, and determined to show him she is fearless. She is also beautiful and tempting, and when Cade sees just how afraid she really is underneath her brave act, he may be in danger of losing his heart to her forever. When her would-be killer attacks, it's all he can do to keep Lynne safe.

He swore to protect her, but who will protect him from her?

This is a great book!  I love the characters!  Lynne Tremaine is spirited and adventurous on her trip across the Oregon Trail to Denver City.  Cade Lawson is sexy and protective of Lynne.  Their romance blossoms as they fight danger and the hardships of their trip.  It’s a fun book that made me laugh and just feel good reading it.  I could almost picture myself on the trail with Lynne and Cade.  Make sure you read this one!

Duty, Honor, Love and Redemption  After Judge Tremaine sentenced two of The Briscoe Boys gang to hang for their crimes, threats are made against his family.  With his two sons off fighting for the Union Army, he decides to send oldest daughter, Lynne, on a wagon train to Denver City where his brother and sister in law live. The Judge hires fifteen year old Ben to drive the wagon and his brother George sends Cade Lawson to protect her.  The journey has several encounters making them believe that someone from the Briscoe Boys gang is amongst them. Several threats and even attacks are made against Lynne. Along the way the relationship of Lynne and Cade has the heat turned up.  This story has so many elements to keep the pages turning, who is the enemy trying to kill Lynne. The angst between Cade and Lynne. It has it's love/hate moments. Lynne is no wimpy-whiny woman, she has a backbone and strong will. Cade knows his priority is to keep Lynne safe but always keeps the incident that happened last winter in the back of his mind, he cannot fail again. So many fun characters and interactions in this story.  The love scenes are hot but not overly explicit.  Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.

Not bad but not great either. Some side story lines were vague and never dealt with. The female tried too hard to convince herself that she wasn't afraid.

This is a very good story. It has suspense, romance and an historical setting that all work together to really hook you into the book. Using the setting of a wagon trail to the west was ingenious, you really would not have expected any romance in that setting and really the only suspense you would expect to encounter would be the crossing of the rivers so this was a really nice surprise. Some of the circumstances were a bit hard to believe, the two main characters thinking that the rest of the gossips in the wagon train wouldn't realize that there was something romantic going on between them and judging them for it was a bit unbelievable but it didn't detract from the book at all. I did get a little frustrated that the identify of the threat seemed to elude them for so long, he wasn't suspected and to me he was first on my list. But overall, I really did enjoy this story, the writing was very good and the characters were well developed.

Lynne Tremaine has a problem. Her father is a very important man, a judge who has sentenced the gang called the Briscoe Boys to jail and some to death. There is a problem, there are Lots of Briscoe Boys. Lynne's entire family has been receiving death threats. Lynne's father decides that he will send Lynne on a wagon train on the Oregon trail to Colorado City, to stay with her aunt and uncle. Her uncle George has sent Cole to ensure the safety of Lynne on the trail. Lynne resents that her uncle has sent a man to "take care of her" she feels that she can take care of herself. Her father secures a young man Ben, who will drive Lynne's wagon for her. As they get on the trail, mysterious things keep happening, to make Cole and Lynne think that she didn't get away from the Briscoe Boys, that one of them is somehow on the trail with them. Cole and Lynne fall in love and are determined to capture the bandit. A good book, has lots of details in it.

Traveling by covered wagon was not easy and doing so to get away from death threats only to find out that someone in the group traveling with you is out to kill you could not have been easy for Lynne. Having said this, I found Lynne to be a spoiled, headstrong, brat for most of the book. She did not listen to the man put in charge of her safety and did many rather silly things that threatened not only herself but livestock and others in the wagon train. I cannot see her father sending her across country without a woman to act as chaperone but this is fiction so perhaps anything is possible. I am interested in finding out how Callie, left alone due to the death of her family, ends up with the man she married out of necessity and wonder if Emma ends up with the man she seems to be interested in. I also wonder if the man in charge of the wagon train will find someone to love. The book was somewhat predictable but was well edited and fun to read.

I would have given it a higher rating but the heroine Lynne, was too exasperating, selfish, childish and more too much of the time. It could have been great with a bold woman instead. Only finished it to see the ending. The hero is very good though. Sorry but wimpy females who think they are hot just don't cut it. I would rewrite it with a better female heroine.

Cade and Lynne's story. Lynne's father was a judge and his decision to hang men of the Briscoe family, put his family in danger. He put Lynne on a wagon train heading west to Denver, Co and Oregon. Cade and Ben was hired to be her bodyguard and Ben to drive the oxen pulling the wagon. Lynne is a brave independent woman and doesn't want to leave her father or be watched by this handsome man that watches her and sends feelings in her she would rather not have. Accidents and strange warnings are happening on the trail west. Did someone follow her? Are they on the wagon train? Is she really in danger from the Briscoe family? Cade is hired to protect her, but who will protect her from him? The story is full of events and an enjoyable read. "I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review"

I'm not even close to be done and I have to leave a review...the "heroin" has to be the most annoying, childish, mean woman I have ever read about. I can't wait for this book to be over! I'm disappointed because I read other books from this aythor and they are very enjoyable. Not the case with this one

If I ever doubted a heroines bravery in any book, that was not the case in this book. The author made sure that she continuously told how brave the main character was. It became annoying and tedious. The love scene was somewhat believable but afterwards she turns into a sniveling child and blames Cade for everything even though she practically begged him for it. I stopped reading after about the fiftieth time reading how brave Lynne is. I only got to about page 92 out of 197. Not worth it unless you enjoy this kind of heroine.
