At the fort Rachel tries to join a wagon train, but is told by the leader that he will not take on single women. The only person she knows is Wade. Turning to Wade for help she asks him to marry her. Wade doesn't want to be married but needs the money she is offering. Therefore the idea for a fake marriage comes into play.
The two pretends to be married and things heat up on the trail. Did I forget to mention her father was a minister and they were on their way to help set up a new church. Wade is far from religious and grew up in a saloon.
Also Rachel was in love before and that man from her past winds up on the same trail. This book will keep you turning the pages.
He leads them to the nearest fort with every intention of leaving them in the hands of the people there. The next wagon train heads to Oregon where she is headed. She plans to be in the group. When she finds out that a single woman will not be allowed to join the group she sets out to do what she has to do to get her little family to Oregon and a new life.
I thought all the characters were very real. the rogue preacher reminded me of one that once preached at our church as well as some of the big shot preachers on TV that have been caught with their pants down. Becky also reminded me of family members that acted the same way. Selfish, self-centered and looking out for themselves and to heck with everyone else. I really wish the Indians had got to these 2.
The characters were all formed by events in their childhood. Much like all the rest of us. It goes to show that one should really try to walk in another's shoes before one jumps to judge that person. I didn't find the sex scenes explicit at all. I thought they were rather tame considering the circumstances. After all that wagon was just so big!!! Some of the reviews let me to believe this was going to be porn or erotica which it absolutely was not. I thought it added to the story and there was nothing wrong with it. Maybe some of the reviewers should stick with Christian romances where holding hands offends God or the teen books and stay away from adult books. I really enjoyed this story and cared about the characters. Loved the hero. I recommend it if you like a story of the old West, adventure, romance and adult love. Good read. Good job Ms. McDaniel
Once Rachel and her charges meet up with the wagon train she receives the distressing news that she can't continue onward on the wagon trained unmarried. Can she convince Wade to help her?
Once underway surprised come in the form of an old flame for Rachel. She is no longer impressed with him. Does her heart belong to Wade? Is Wade willing to settle down, marry Rachel, and take on the job of being father to three orphans?
The dangers and surprises on the trail have a way of teaching everyone what is more important in life.

No le he encontrado ni pies ni cabeza a esta historia. No es romántica, no es interesante y sobre todo me ha puesto los nervios de punta, como suele pasarme cuando los personajes no dejan de hacer tonterías, son egoístas y dicen una cosa y hacen otra completamente distinta, es decir, no son consecuentes.
Otra historia más con el “no puedo, no soy lo suficientemente bueno para ella” que se repite cansinamente hasta el final, o bueno, al menos, hasta el 82% se sigue repitiendo, sin ninguna otra explicación.
Otra historia en la que se nos presenta a los protagonistas de una manera y después actúan de otra diferente…en qué quedamos?
A pesar de que la protagonista, Rachel, tiene 22 años y está a cargo de tres menores y una hermana de 18 años que es una auténtica descerebrada, se piensa si debe salvar las biblias de su padre y el órgano de su madre o salvar su vida y por tanto la de los menores a su cargo…muy maduro…sí señor. El protagonista se niega a casarse con ella peeeroooo…se acuesta con ella sin ninguna intención de proponerle matrimonio, y además la quiere tanto que la dejará tirada al final del viaje para que encuentre un hombre que la merezca más que él, y que no le importe que sea “material de segunda mano”, no?, lo que nos lleva al tema del sexo fuera del matrimonio…justificado para los protagonistas pero no para la hermana…porqué? No lo sé…y además, este hecho se oculta para salvar la reputación de la protagonista…ejem…eso se salvaba mediante el matrimonio…no? Todo super romántico (nótese la ironía), y sin ningún fundamento histórico.
El remate final lo pone el “doble rasero” con el que se miden las acciones dependiendo de si lo hacen los protagonistas (en cuyo caso está bien y es justificado) o si lo hacen los secundarios (en cuyo caso está muuuuy mal y se condena…)aquí hubiese metido yo la famosa frase “el que esté libre de culpa que tire la primera piedra”.
En fin, cansino, aburrido, poco creíble y muy previsible.
