Josephine Chastain doesn’t expect to contract typhoid on the way to Oregon and she certainly doesn’t expect to have to stay behind with the one man who drives her to distraction. Yet Declan Calhoun becomes her nurse, her savior and her faux husband.
Declan doesn’t want to be a hero but he also doesn’t want Jo to die so far from home, away from her family. While she fights the disease, he finds himself falling for the bookish Chastain sister. With a spine of steel and smarter than any human he’d ever met, Jo is everything he could never be.
After a daring escape from their quarantine, the pair set out to find John and Francesca Malloy, the only family Jo has left in Wyoming. The wilderness tests their strength, their fortitude and their endurance as they fight their way across the unforgiving land. With hostile men in hot pursuit, Jo and Declan find more than they bargain for and the love they both crave.
