Someone is trying to kill Lynne Tremaine. After her father sentences two members of The Briscoe Boys gang to death, Judge Tremaine feels he has no choice but to send Lynne to Denver City along the Oregon Trail to live with her Uncle George, against her will. For Lynne, the only thing worse than being sent away to the Wild West is making the journey with the handsome, arrogant, wicked man her uncle has hired to escort her. Especially when the anger she feels toward him begins to turn to something hotter.
Cade Lawson is determined to prove himself to his employer, George Tremaine, after letting him down months earlier. But what he thought would be his second chance may, in fact, be a harsh punishment for his past mistakes. Lynne is headstrong, fiery, and determined to show him she is fearless. She is also beautiful and tempting, and when Cade sees just how afraid she really is underneath her brave act, he may be in danger of losing his heart to her forever. When her would-be killer attacks, it's all he can do to keep Lynne safe.
He swore to protect her, but who will protect him from her?
The narrator was pretty bad. I think I might send a recording to Audible to see if they'll hire me. If this book is any indication of the competition out there, I think I might stand a chance of landing a narration gig too. But, the story wasn't much better either. Like another reviewer lamented, the phrase 'she was her papa's brave girl' had me rolling eyes. And it didn't take much of a sleuth to identify the sinister character at the heart of the story's mystery. It was pretty obvious to me by the time I had finished the 2nd or 3rd chapter.
