I loved this story of Cassie, Drew, Maggie, Hunter. So much depth. I recommend it. How their lives touched each other for the good, bad and ugly and how they survived.

This is one of those books where you want to yell at the heroine. I do wish it had more intimate love scenes, especially when Cassandra finally chooses the right man. (I talk to characters as I read -- I tried to warn her, but she didn't listen!) Anyway, the story was so realistic, I can imagine that Cassandra Morgan really existed. This is an author I will read again, even though I usually read more erotic literature. I'm a sucker for historical romance, so I will be reading book 2. I'm putting this author's name on my list for when I want to read something different. I'm glad I took a chance with this "new-to-me" author.

I found this book to be riveting from start to end. A perfect romance. Highly engaging prose. So many themes resonated with me from the pain of choosing the wrong man to challenges faced during the settling of the West. Even the holistic remedies employed by the heroine had my interest in this age when so many of us are seeking natural remedies. This author skillfully presents each character's perspective in perfect detail. Her ability to put herself into other's shoes benefits the reader from the rich story which unfolds. And, instead of upstaging the romance, the history of the period is eloquently woven in, furthering the tension that the characters had to endure in order to find true happiness together. And there is tension. I recommend you read the second half of the novel during the day because the suspense will keep you up all night

Lost between two cultures Cassandra (Cass) Morgan believes she’s the only survivor of the Indian attack on the small wagon train nine years ago. Sold back to the US Army for a wagonload of supplies, she belongs to neither world. Captain Drew Reynolds’ hatred of Indians and need for revenge festered during his years at West Point and continued during the Civil War. Now he’s in Wyoming, eager to battle against the Indians who killed all the people he loved. Cass and Drew were sweethearts before they were torn apart by the Indian attack. Now she’s back, but her facial tattoo prevents him from totally accepting her. He intends to hire her as housekeeper for his young, motherless daughter but Cass insists on marriage. She needs the protection of his rank and status – but even that is not enough to prevent others from twisting facts to paint her as a traitor. Only one man at the fort – the half-breed scout Hunter Jalbert – understands her position.   This is a great story told well. I appreciated the frequent references to Cass’ need to see the wide sky of the American West.
