When Francesca Chastain sets off on the six month journey from New York to Oregon with her family, she is running from the darkness of her past. The land of milk and honey offers a fresh start. The wagon master’s assistant, John Malloy, ruins her dress and sets her off balance with his smile, his flirting and his handsome visage. She doesn’t want to find herself in need of him, or worse, falling in love with him.
John Malloy has worked wagon trains for three years, saving every cent to start his horse ranch in the Wyoming Territory. This is his last trip and the feisty Frankie Chastain turns it into the most confusing, frustrating time of his life. Then she disappears.
Frankie’s past shadows her travels and threatens her future. Trapped in the wild, she has to rely on John to get back to her family. Neither one expects the intensity of their attraction or the fight for their lives.
