Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Beverly Jenkins comes a new novel in a mesmerizing series set in the Old West, where an arranged marriage becomes a grand passion....

What kind of mail-order bride greets her intended with a bullet instead of a kiss? One like Regan Carmichael - an independent spirit equally at home in denims and dresses. Shooting Dr. Colton Lee in the shoulder is an honest error, but soon Regan wonders if her entire plan to marry a man she's never met is a mistake. Colton, who buried his heart along with his first wife, insists he only wants someone to care for his daughter. Yet Regan is drawn to the unmistakable desire in his gaze.

Regan's far from the docile bride Colton was expecting. Still, few women would brave the wilds of Wyoming Territory for an uncertain future with a widower and his child. The thought of having a bold, forthright woman like Regan in his life - and in his arms - begins to inspire a new dream. And despite his family's disapproval and an unseen enemy, he'll risk all to make this match a real union of body and soul.

Lovely end to a wonderful series

I loved this book so much and I know I say that after every Beverly Jenkins novel but it’s because she writes love stories that enrich, enlighten and educate while giving us the HEA we long for. When people ask for recs, I always start with Beverly Jenkins.

I love that we got to see a fiery, headstrong Regan get the guy and a community all in one incredibly adventurous tale. I love that we see the horrors of the era without sugarcoating any of it encapsulates around a love story that centers on hope. I love that we see a “broken” family heal through love and acceptance. I love that I get to learn about life on the frontier for POC. I love that sex is shown on the page as a conduit for the connection two people share and how sometimes it’s not a love match but when it is, the lovemaking is that much sweeter.

I love that!

Great story!

Great story, the narrator was really good. There are times where I did not want to turn it off so that I could sleep. The story of Regan and Colt was very romantic, it had just enough steam to keep me interested & the storyline was very intriguing. I will definitely recommend the story to anyone who would like to listen.

Absolutely Perfect!!!

Where to start? This book had everything a good historical novel needs. There was love, angst, suspense, murder, fiery love scenes and a few giggles tossed in for the heck of it. Dr. Lee and Regan' s story was simply superb. I did not want it to end! I really hope that the Gambler and Dovie get their on story. I'd also really like to see a story about Spring and the forgiveness of her grandfather. I believe this was my favorite book in the entire series! It was also really great to catch up on past characters from the series. Keep them coming Ms. Jenkins
