Rating: 4 Cups
Marriage to a stranger is the only way for Hannah to get her two sisters out of the dismal orphanage. Now the three of them are traveling the Oregon Trail in a Conestoga wagon. Their luck worsens when they are left behind by their wagon train and when Hannah’s husband, Mr. McMurtry, falls ill. When they are attacked by renegade Sioux, Hannah must fight for her life in the wild Wyoming wilderness.
Flint Creed needs a wife. His brother Ransom is engaged to marry the woman he loves, so Flint needs a distraction to keep him away from his brother’s woman. When he finds the widow McMurtry lost and alone, it almost seems like a Godsend. Not only is she beautiful, she is in need of a home and of protection.
Marrying Flint is a means to an end, but Hannah cannot deny the unmistakable attraction between them. Again and again, Flint proves he is a good man, one she can rely on, if only he had not given his heart to his brother’s wife. Will the agreement between them be enough, or will they both wind up wanting more?
Set against the wild and unforgiving Wyoming territory, this story is an instant classic. Flint and Hannah have an irresistible chemistry, and readers will enjoy the ups and downs of their relationship. It is a must have for those who loved Ms. Johnston’s Bitter Creek Ranch series. Fans will adore this peek into the lives of the Creeds and Blackthornes who started it all.
