Haley Whitehall lives in Washington State where she enjoys all four seasons and the surrounding wildlife. She writes historical romance set in the 19th century U.S. When she is not researching or writing, she plays with her cats, watches the Western and History Channels, and goes antiquing. She is hoping to build a time machine so research will be easier. A good book, a cup of coffee, and a view of the mountains make her happy.

Ida Page has seen the worst the west has to offer. Snubbed by the citizens of Big Rock, Colorado, ever since the town cleaned up its act and became civilized, she has tried to change with the times. No other line of work available, she became a laundress after the mayor shut down the brothel, but the good people will not allow her to forget her past as a shady lady. She has given up on ever being accepted, let alone falling in love, until a handsome half-breed stranger arrives in town.
After the War Between the States, William Steere has been looking for a town to build a medical practice. He answered a newspaper ad placed by the mayor of Big Rock and hopes their desperate need for a doctor will overrule their race prejudice against his half-breed heritage. At the Independence Day picnic, he is introduced to all the town citizens except for one woman sitting off by herself. This redhead draws him to her with merely a gaze, but will the town's prejudice keep them apart?

This was such a sweet and loving story, but also had it's steamy parts!! Two outcasts just trying to fit in and find love. Whitehall's writing took back in time and I didn't want to leave! This is the first book I have read from Whitehall and I'm so glad I did! I can't wait to read more of her work. If you enjoy Historical Romance especially Westerns this is an author you can't miss out on.
It had a good storyline and was well written. Romantic scenes were adequate. Character build-up was evident but I felt the ending was rushed. Coming from a medical background, I felt more research should have been done to establish the supposed acceptance by the townspeople.
