It is the 1890s and Evie Logan is attempting to escape an arranged marriage to the arrogant and nasty William Douglas. A month after she dons a disguise, flees Philadelphia, and travels two thousand miles to begin anew as a chef in the Wild West, she has no idea that chance is about to lead her straight to a head-knocking encounter with William's cousin, Jackson.
Jackson, who is already aware William is offering a hefty reward for Evie's return, quickly realizes her true identity. Intrigued by her red hair and natural beauty, Jackson offers her a chance to escape her lustful boss and become his personal cook. Seemingly left with no other choice, Evie accepts and begins a new chapter once again, this time in Ironton, where she and Jackson eventually stage a fake wedding in an effort to rid her of William once and for all. But there are just two little problems: William has not given up his pursuit of the feisty woman he intends to make his wife and Jackson is falling in love with Evie.
In this historical romance, a rebellious young woman fleeing a marriage of convenience is led to a new destiny where she discovers that love always comes when one is least expecting it.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It kept my attention and I look forward to Beth's next book. It was interesting for her to talk about places in Colorado!
