A broken-hearted divorcee. A pregnant survivor. Can they turn an unwanted marriage… into love?
Wyoming, 1866. Brandon Herman wants to drink away his heartache. Divorced, disgraced, and out of work, the last thing he wants to do is marry again. When he’s strong-armed into marrying a Crow Indian woman, he only thinks of running away… until he learns his bride-to-be is nine months pregnant…
Lokni doesn’t trust her pale-skinned husband. After all, his kind raided her tribe, killed her loved ones, and stole her freedom. If it weren’t for the contractions, she would've already left her intoxicated groom. But until the baby is born, Lokni must bide her time and plan her escape…
As the unlikely couple embarks across the untamed West, Brandon’s support helps their friendship to blossom. They start to realize that it’s more than the baby that draws them together. But on the trail to a brighter future, not everybody they meet is interested in their happily ever after…

Quick read and rather sweet. I enjoyed the characters.
This one was just lovely. It was so good to see Brandon get his happily ever after. He had a hard road to walk to recovery from his failed marriage and the whisky he uses to dull the pain. I was pleased that he stuck to his resolve to stop drinking and be a good husband and father. I liked Lokni's quiet strength. Her past was horrible but she chose to make the best of her life. I loved that Brandon was willing to wait for Lokni and that it was she that made the first move to a real marriage. Adult read
