He wanted me gone, and now he won’t let me out of his sight. It’s rather inconvenient.


He’s annoyingly handsome, arrogant, and my temporary boss. I never meant to be out west this long. I’m here to search for the one who can prove my innocence and get back to providing a simple life for my younger sister. But as soon as James found out I’d been looking for my old roommate, he refuses to let me go alone. Now he won’t let me out of his sight, and being forced to search with him is slowing me down. Running away may be my only option because being wanted for murder and arson is bound to catch up to me soon.


Why does she have to be so stubborn? If she’d just do as she’s told and stop fighting me, we’d have a smooth working ranch. Right now it’s as functional as a wagon with a missing wheel. It’s not going anywhere fast. And I need it to be fast. As soon as my injured pa recovers and Emma finds her roommate, I can leave and never come back to this place where old memories make me regret the haunting past I’m trying to forget.

This is a clean Western Historical Romance that takes place in 1869.
