Luke Jackson, a volunteer soldier based in Santa Fe, is eager to return home to San Antonio, Texas. Weary from the war and healing from a serious injury, he is given one last assignment before his discharge - to escort the daughter of a wealthy businessman to Las Vegas in the New Mexico Territory. Luke is stunned to discover that not only does he have to escort the woman and her chaperone, but four young orphans as well.
Melanie Faraday has always been an obedient daughter, but she is dismayed to learn her widowed father has brought her to Santa Fe to marry the son of one of his business partners. Unprepared for marriage to a stranger, but unwilling to go against her father, she feels her future is doomed until she meets four abandoned Mexican children shortly after her arrival in Santa Fe. She vows to find them a home and, in a desperate attempt to avoid her impending marriage, she uses her father's connections to secure an escort for her to take the children to an orphanage in Las Vegas, unbeknownst to her father.
During the journey the group is hampered with thunderstorms, which delays their travels but gives Luke and Melanie much time to not only fall in love with each other, but to fall in love with the children as well.

This Avalon historical romance involves a volunteer soldier from the Mexican War, Luke Jackson, who has been selected to escort Melanie Faraday up to Las Vegas. Little does Luke know that three feisty little boys and a wailing baby will accompany Melanie on this potentially dangerous journey. Her powerful father has promised Melanie¿s hand in marriage to another but will Luke and Melanie give into their growing affections? Undoubtedly, but it¿s a charming trip worth taking for the fans of historical romances.
Imagine a trek along the Santa Fe Trail in 1849 with four kids, a nanny and a beautiful, spirited young woman that is anything but predictable and you see what Luke Jackson is up against. All he wanted to do after the war was to go home to Texas, but his commanding officer has one last assignment for him. Escort Miss Melanie Faraday to Las Vegas and keep her safe in the process. An easy enough task. Or is it? In Santa Fe Sunrise, author Kathleen Fuller answers that question in a delightful, engaging love story, sure to leave you wanting more, with characters that walk off the pages right into your heart. A delightful, quick read you don¿t want to miss.
