Then she discovers she doesn’t even have enough money to pay for the stagecoach! Luckily for her, the compassionate Major Joseph Randolph is heading in the same direction.
As a military surgeon, Joe is used to keeping his professional distance. But, despite Susanna’s understated beauty, he’s drawn to this woman who carries loss and pain equal to his own and has a heart that is just as hesitant and wary….

Formats: 288 pages, 4. x 7″, mass market paperback; e-book
Genre: Historical Romance
Carla Kelly’s books always have so much historical detail in them — this one focuses on an army garrison in Wyoming in the 1870’s. She doesn’t gloss over the harsh life or the realities of war, yet her stories are always full of hope. This one had more sexual references than her others that I’ve read (although the characters were married).
