After the death of her abusive husband, Anne Tillerton has been living in the wilds of Indian Territory as a buffalo hunter. She's more comfortable in buckskins than in fancy dresses. Nicholas Lovelace is shocked to see her again. Even more so when she saves his life during a train robbery. Nick's life is going just as he planned it. His business is growing and he's invited into the homes of polite society where mothers with marriageable daughters play the matchmaker. When an infant is left in Anne's care, she seeks assistance from Nick. As they join forces to care for this baby left in her care, Nick finds himself drawn to Anne. She's guarded, and for good reason. But can she trust him? Will Nick allow his career to cause him to miss the possibility of a future with Anne?
This was a really sweet read. I enjoyed both Anne and Nicholas. There were times that I thought that Nick was too stuffy. And I frequently thought of Anne as an Annie Oakley. But still, they were fun to read about. I loved how she saved his life - twice! And I loved how each grew as the book progressed.
While it wasn't my favorite, I did enjoy it. I made for several relaxing lunchtimes at work. Would I read it again? Probably. I think it's a great book to add to a beach bag for the summer.
I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
