About the Book:
A betrayal...a secret baby….an unknown imposter…will Tess survive the wagon train journey to Sunset Hills, Oregon after her life is threatened? And if so, what will she do once she gets there?
1855. Tess Findlay can’t wait to be reunited with her beau who went out west three months ago to mine for gold, saying he’d send for her soon. Even though she hasn’t heard from him, she’s discovered she’s with child and decides to join a wagon train to travel to Oregon to surprise him with the news.
When a band of robbers holds up the caravan, Tess is shocked to recognize her beau as one of the outlaws. He warns her that someone on the wagon train isn’t who they seem but before he can reveal the person’s identity he is killed in a gunfight. Who can Tess trust? She is drawn to widowed physician Garrett Kincaid but fears for her life and that of her unborn child. Besides, what man would ever want a woman who is carrying another man’s baby?
Garrett Kincaid is looking forward to bringing his youngest nephew, Jacob, to join his sister and brother-in-law out west. His sister begged him to care for her young son until the rest of the family got settled in Sunset Hills. The time is right for them to make the journey. There is nothing left in Kansas now for Garrett, anyway, not since his wife died of typhoid. He’s always wanted to start his own medical clinic, and Sunset Hills seems like the perfect place.
However, after the wagon train is robbed, Garrett realizes he will have to do everything in his power to help the group arrive safely. When his nephew befriends a beautiful young woman, Garrett can’t help but wonder why she is traveling alone. Can he discover her secrets without scaring her away? And he is ready to love again?
