On the frontier of a new life
Tired and hungry after two days of traveling, Susanna Hopkins is just about at the end of her tether when her train finally arrives in Cheyenne. She's bound for a new life in a Western garrison town. 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 .
Carla Kelly started writing Regencies because of her interest in the Napoleonic Wars. She specializes in writing about warfare at sea and the ordinary people of the British Isles who were, let's face it, far more numerous than lords and ladies! In her spare time she likes to cook, crochet, read British crime fiction and history books, and is never happier than talking about the fur trade or Indian Wars – her other favourite interest. Carla lives in Carbon County, Utah.
