She offered him five-hundred dollars to get her there in time, and she in turn promised to not slow him down. He agreed to take her. The ride was hard but she kept up. Myles had only scheduled relay station stops and the rest of the time he ate hardtack in the saddle without slowing his horse, and she learned to do it, too. At first, Myles thought she’d get tired, then he could leave her at one of the stops. After the first day of hard riding, Delsie couldn’t stand on her legs when she dismounted the horse, but she kept to her end of the bargain and didn’t slow him down.
She’s a rich socialite, but he gains a new respect for her as they travel through dangerous territory. The story idea is unique and cute, even though I’m not really sure that would have really happened unless maybe you were Annie Oakley. But there were a lot of tough women in those days, and Delsie starts off as one that had great determination to see this through. Don’t want to spoil the story for you. I thought it was a great read.
Myles Patton has been burned by women before and when Delsie shows up pleading for an escort to California, he doesn't want anything to do with her. When she offers him an outrageous some of money to get her there he simply can't refuse. Thinking she'll bail out after one day, he is surprised when she takes on challenges head-on and never gives up. Slowly his apprehension turns to admiration. I really enjoyed Delsie and Myles, I love a relationship that develops naturally and isn't instalove. They have to learn to trust one another and through their experiences they really become to depend on one another. It's really a sweet romance.
I also enjoyed the setting and learning more about express riders. Overall, I thought this was a fun read. The story was well developed and paced well. The characters were likable and easy to root for, a nice sweet romance and easy to recommend.

A review copy of this book was provided by Prism Book Tours.
The middle started to lag for me. Within the story, Myles seemed to change his opinion of Delsie fairly early on and then just decided that he was not the right kind of man for her. *SPOILER* While there was some tension in the idea that Delsie would not marry against her father's wishes, it frustrated me that she was willing to defy her father in order to travel across country on horse back to see her sister for a day, yet she was not willing to do the same for the man she loved. *END SPOILER* There were also some interactions with Indians in which I was able to predict the entire interaction because it was the same as I have seen many other times before.
Near the end, after Delsie has returned home, the story picked back up. Here, Delsie showed more of the same spirit she started off the journey with and Myles has learned to be content with life. I liked how the story ended and if the middle had played out similarly, I would have enjoyed the story far more.
I received this book through Prism Tours in exchange for an honest review.
