In the wake of the Civil War, Willow Moran hires Caleb Black to cross the Colorado Rockies in search of her brother. For her own protection, Willow tells Caleb that she is searching for her husband. Caleb accepts the mission because he has his own agenda for wanting to find Willow's 'husband' - revenge. Much adventure and reluctant passion ensues.
This is the second book of Lowell's I've read where the initial writing was awkward and unpromising. It's also the second one I've read where Lowell really hits her strides after a couple of chapters and reels you in hook, line and sinker.
I love adventure, I love romance and I love heroes like Caleb. This had it all and I look forward to reading the next in the series.
