Publisher's Summary

Genevieve Waters-Ewing is married.

She's married to a man she doesn't love, and didn't agree to marry.

The scoundrel dragged her to the altar, and now everything is going to change. In a split second decision, she runs away, and stows aboard a chuck wagon that's leaving on a cattle drive, heading north to Montana. She doesn't know where she'll go, or what she'll do, she only knows one thing - she has to leave Fort Worth, Texas.

Thomas O'Reilly's finally got the chance to prove himself to his Pa. After finding gold in Montana Territory, he travels to Texas to buy a herd of longhorns to take back north with him, where demand for beef is high. Everything is going his way until he discovers a beautiful, young woman asleep in the back of his chuck wagon.

A woman on the trail is bad for business, especially in a group of rough and rowdy cowboys. Will she ruin everything he's worked so hard for? Or will she be the one thing he really needs?

Follow their journey, from Texas to Montana Territory, where challenges lurk around every corner, and love is forged in the heat of battle.

Thoroughly enjoyable!

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook! I haven't read a lot of Vivi's books but I plan to read more! I loved the surprising scenes with Sara and the Indians as well as the letter from Jenny's best friend! The Narrator did a great job and I got lost in the story as his cadence whipped me away to the trail! I'm sure to listen and or read more of Vivi's adventurous books!

Genevieve is forced by her step father to marry his best friend.

Genevieve refuses to marry the older man but she is not strong enough to stop it. He even signs her name to the marriage license when she refuses. While waiting outside the saloon for the two men drinking congratulations to each other, she runs away and secretly joins a cattle drive. Thomas, the foreman of the drive discovers her but after her pleading lets her stay as long as she helps the cook. It is obvious they are smitten with each other but she knows nothing can happen even if she is unhappily married. Well written characters one can care for.

Wonderful Story

Cody Roberts did an absolutely amazing job of narrating this audio book. The varied emotional feelings came through wonderfully. Great job.

How can a stepfather treat his stepdaughter the horrific way he treated Genny? He was despicable. He and his neighbor should have been hung for what they did to her.

Genny was very brave to run away and do what she did, Thomas sure was a lifeline for her even though it caused him untold problems both with his job and personally.

The end of the book was amazing! Please do get either the audio book or the book and read it for yourself or have Cody read to you. It's a book well worth reading or listening to.

From Despair to Delight

Knowing the harsh conditions of the pioneer west and the still harsher conditions of humankind, some requisite suspensions of disbelief become necessary to maintain the storyline; but relax into the world as outlined by the author and enjoy an old-fashioned western romance with sufficient twists, turns and adventures to make for interesting storytelling around the campfire. Our narrator (4.5* but I rounded up) has a very pleasant voice although he gives the women a certain breathlessness not always quite in line with the dialogue. Nonetheless I was able to become fully engrossed in the story and enjoyed myself thoroughly as our heroine overcame misuse and abuse and got up the gumption to light out from impossible circumstances and find true love. No, that is not a spoiler--this is an HEA (a Happily Ever After)!
