To escape the murderous Grady brothers, Alexandra Barratt disguises herself as a boy and joins a frontier party heading West and soon wishes she could drop her ruse to show Luke Slater, who is captaining the wagon train, who she really is—a woman who is in love with him.
The first novel in a new western historical romance series that will take readers for the ride of their lives on the Oregon Trail.
Alexandra Barratt has found the perfect man–it’s a shame he thinks she’s a boy...
Fleeing from the murderous Grady brothers, Alexandra disguises herself as a boy and joins a frontier party heading West, with her brother and sister in tow. The wagon train is captained by the irresistible Luke Slater, who’s never met a woman he couldn’t charm.
At first, Alex can’t believe the way every woman in town falls at Luke’s feet, including her suddenly flirtatious sister. But when she sees him naked in the bathtub, she finds herself swooning over him too. If only she could wash the muck of her face and show him who she really is. Unfortunately she has more pressing concerns…
The Gradys aren’t about to let Alex, nor the small fortune she stole from them, slip through their fingers. Only by maintaining her ruse does she have a chance of protecting her family. But fate, it seems, is conspiring against her.
