Emily Brockinger soon finds herself in trouble when the wagon train she was traveling with is ambushed by Indians, leaving her and a small child the only survivors. Who would have thought a trip west to her brother’s from Boston would turn out this way.
Cloud Ryder cannot believe his eyes when he sees a woman walking through Indian territory with a child, a mule and a makeshift wagon, and is that a parasol she is carrying...what is the woman thinking. With a plan in mind Cloud sets out to offer his assistance but will she be willing to pay the price.
Emily cannot believe Cloud wants her body for the duration of the trip to her brother's but what choice does she have if she wants to make it there alive so she agrees to his terms. What neither Emily nor Cloud is prepared for were the feelings that come along. Once they reach their destination Cloud promises to come back for her until her brother and sister-in-law make other plans for Emily and drive him away.
It has been awhile since I have read a western historical so when I seen this book it was my first choice for the discussion book and I’m glad it picked it. Gunfights, tough cowboys, romance and throw in some humor what more could you ask for. This brought me back to my roots when I first started reading historical romances and my love for the western theme thank you Ms. Howell for laughs and even a tear or two and reminding me why I fell in love with romance books in the first place.
