Book Description

Jake Owens is tired of life on his parents' Montana ranch, catering to city folk who want a taste of old-fashioned country living. He enjoys life in the fast lane, with fast cars and even faster women. When he falls in with the wrong crowd and is accused of murder, a stranger's bizarre offer at a second chance might be his only hope to clear his name.

Rachel Parker is highly devoted to her family. A tragedy prompts a daring move to the Oregon Territory for a fresh start in a new land. After meeting the wagon train's scout, the meaning of a fresh start may be more than she ever imagined.

Jake can't believe he's been sent back in time to act as scout for a wagon train headed for Oregon, and given the added burden of keeping one emigrant woman safe during the journey. He and Rachel are confused by their attraction to each other. Jake's ill-mannered, unconventional ways are overshadowed only by his notorious reputation. Rachel's traditional values and quiet, responsible character are the complete opposite of what attracts Jake to a woman. When their forbidden attraction turns to love, what will happen at the end of the trail?

Editorial Reviews


"From cholera to chaps, Come Home to Me by Peggy
L Henderson is the definition of excellent storytelling. Henderson spins this
yarn with subtle dialogue and description accurate of the era. So subtle, in
fact, the reader won't know they've been transported, like Jake, back in time
until they're entrenched in the hardships of the emigrants who left ruts in the
ground in 1848." 
 --InD'Tale Magazine Crowned Heart Review July 2013

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner! October 20, 2012
By hazeyjo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another winner from Peggy Henderson! I loved her Yellowstone Park series so much I read them twice and couldn't wait for this "second chance time travel" romance to come out. The wait was so worth it! So many twists and turns, heart stopping events, thrills and fears . . . hard to really write a review without giving away important plots of the story! Suffice it to say, I could not recommend this book any more highly - Ms. Henderson has a real talent for weaving history, romance and intensity into her books that keep you on the edge of your seat like a good movie. I can't wait for more second chance stories and also look forward to her Teton Trilogy which I understand will be coming out in the next months.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Chances for Life and Romance October 17, 2012
By Shirl
Format:Kindle Edition
2nd chances, growing feelings, full of twist and surprises along a journey back in time with a growing romance that Jake and Rachel cannot ignore.
Will scouting for the wagon train, something he didn't want to do, help Jake find out what he really likes and wants in life?
Will watching out for Rachel, bring out feelings Jake didn't know he had?
Do they both get a 2nd chance in life?
Come Home To Me, is a heart warming story and every time you think you know what is going to happen, a new surprise happens.
This is a fast paced page turner. Wonderfully written that makes you feel like you are right there with them. A must read for any romance lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Hit! October 17, 2012
By Raine
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Come Home to Me is a heartwarming time travel adventure about love and second chances. I fell in love with Jake and Rachel and literally couldn't put it down from start to finish. She is one of the best authors I've read in a long time, and I'm already looking forward to the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the elements of a wonderful story! October 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has all the elements I look for in a wonderful story: western historical, romance with some sizzle, interesting characters, a believable storyline, and in this case time travel is an added bonus. I love historical romance books and this one did not disappoint. At one point I was crying my eyes out (ok maybe I'm a bit emotional, but that does not happen to me very often). This is the kind of book that you think about throughout the day. It's not a a quick read (although you will probably have a hard time putting it down) that is in and out of your mind, it really does stay with you. While reading about Jake and Rachel, you feel like you are there. I love the historical aspects that are woven into the story line and I appreciate the research that was done (there are some interesting facts at the end that I enjoyed reading). If you like western historical romance (with some time travel thrown in), you will enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars My emotions were on a wild ride! October 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
One thing you can always count on with Ms. Henderson's novels is an unexpected twist and turn! I read all of her "Yellowstone Romance Series" and absolutely loved all of them! So I was very eager for this book to come out!!! Ms. Henderson has a fantastic way of writing that not only draws you into the story, but allows you to see, feel and experience all of the action, drama and romance right along with the main characters, Jake and Rachel. These are real people and situations we can all relate to, even though the story takes place 160+ years ago! I found myself with a smile on my face, tears in my eyes, fists bunched in anger, leaning forward in anticipation and a fan blowing on my blushing cheeks! This is a true gem with a unique spin. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this book!!! I am already looking forward to the future books in the Second Chances Time Travel Romance series. I hope it won't be a long wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars Change of View September 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great time travel book.
Rachel and Jake were believable characters. It was nice to read a book whose characters could have been real, both had faults and issues they were struggling to deal with. Jakes' change of attitude and reassessment of his life was both touching and realistic. Rachel had been dealt a raw deal but her strength really shone through. A beautiful story about love, compassion, understanding and second chances without being a fairytale. Every bit as enjoyable as the Yellowstone Series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Time Travel Romance August 6, 2013
By Megan
Format:Kindle Edition
I haven't read many time travel romance novels, but was pleasantly surprised with this one and how it pulled at my heartstrings. Jake is in trouble, in jail in 2012 for suspected murder. He's a guy who always is chasing skirts and not looking to settle down. A man gives him a second chance to make his life right again by transporting him to 1848, where he meets Rachel. She's the perfect, modest gal for him - quite unlike anyone he's been with before. This novel is beautiful and if you like time travel romances, I would recommend this one for you.

I never thought I'd be a writer, much less publish a book someday. I always wanted to be a veterinarian. I guess life just had other plans for me. When my husband and I decided to start a family, vet school pretty much went out the window. I used to work with a vet who had three children while going through vet school. To this day, she is my hero.

I'm married to my high school sweetheart, and together with our two sons, we make our home in Southern California. Our family also includes a Labrador Retriever, a welsh pony, a miniature horse, three cats, four bearded dragons, and a flock of laying hens. Almost every summer since my husband and I graduated from high school, we spend two weeks camping in Yellowstone National Park.

Four years ago, I began writing a story that, for whatever reason, was stuck in my head for almost a year. I have been an avid romance reader for a long time, and the idea took hold to - why not? - write my own!
It has been a long and difficult journey and learning experience from my first sentence to a completed, and hopefully polished, manuscript.

The story, titled Yellowstone Heart Song, is set in the Rocky Mountain region which today encompasses Yellowstone National Park. It takes place decades before the area was even known to white men, a time just after Lewis and Clark, before the mountain man era was in full swing.

The story has turned into the Yellowstone Romance Series, with five books and a novella published.
My newest venture is a time travel romance series, which I am calling Second Chances. The first two titles, Come Home to Me, and Ain't No Angel, are available. I am also working on a historical romance trilogy, called the Teton Romance Trilogy. Teton Sunrise and Teton Splendor are published. The final book, Teton Sunset, is in the works.

I want to send a special thank you to all my readers. Thank you for taking the time to write reviews and to email me, leave messages on my blog, and find me on facebook. I wish I could thank each and every one of you personally. My email address can be found at the back of each of my books, and I will always make the time to respond. Thank you for making my journey as a writer such an awesome experience.
