This is another beautiful, but unlikely, love story between Army Scout, Dillon Reed and Debutante, Alma Talmadge. It has become easy to read Ms. Nord's stories, as she writes with such clarity and heart felt storytelling. Not only does Ms. Nord put her all in her books, she does her research on the time period. The title of this story is very fitting to the story line. Read the book and follow the hero and heroine on their journey west. Dillon is hired by Alma's uncle to protect and secure her passage western, as she is to meet up with her betrothed. But will she follow through with her engagement? Will she even make it to Arizona to meet up with him? A very intriguing and tantalizing story. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment of this series.
Another epic story in The Cutteridge Family saga. I've enjoyed this series by Cindy Nord and look forward to many more of her books. This book will take you on an amazing and exciting adventure across the untamed southwest. Cindy Nord doesn't disappoint with her cast of characters and hero Dillon Reed. I hope you will read this book and enjoy it as much as I have. (I purchased this book in another format)
