With this enchanting tale, Linda Lael Miller begins a delightful series centered around a bustling Montana stagecoach stop. For one young widow, Springwater Station is the place where dreams are waiting to come true—and love is about to bloom.
Evangeline Keating came west because she had to: after her husband’s passing, she needed to build a new life for her young daughter, and marrying a stranger from Montana Territory was her best chance. After a difficult winter journey, she arrives at an isolated outpost called Springwater Station. But the handsome man who’s come for her is not her husband-to-be, and Evangeline soon finds herself thrust into a most inconvenient—and highly improper—arrangement.
Scully Wainwright never intended to be left alone with his ranching partner’s fiancée. But his partner’s not due back until spring, and he can’t leave a defenseless woman and her child unguarded—not with wolves and Indians threatening. Biding his time with the lovely Evangeline begins to feel dangerously close to setting up a real home. But as a reckless passion sparks between them, Scully and Evangeline discover a destiny—and a passion—as boundless as the open frontier.
