For some reason, I got the impression that this book was considered a Christian Historical Romance. It's not. But the ideas were clean and I enjoyed the book's morals very much!

There is some cussing in the book (nothing too bad). There is no premarital sex that I could find (though the father did plan on spending the night with a prostitute one night when drunk). I thought this story really had a good message about finding hope. I really, really liked the scene where the hero (sorry, it's been a few days since I read the book and can't remember his name) finally confronts Sam in her father's cabin. I couldn't help laughing - thought she did have that coming!

Great book! Would love to revisit these characters.

California during the 1850's Gold Rush was no place for a woman and Owen Carlton knew that only too well. He and Sam had been looking for gold like all the other hopefuls but between the two of them, Sam was better at finding the nuggets. Unfortunately, Owen was better at spending the money at the local saloon.

After finding a rather large nugget, Owen sat drunk and bragging at the local watering hole. He was proud of his Sam finding the biggest nuggets, and as he told the story, two men overheard him. Sam had been a bit of trouble in town attempting to drag Owen out of the saloon and had been thrown out of the front door into the mud for her efforts. Then there was the beehive incident, but the men decided to kidnap Sam for the boy's gold finding skills.

Sheriff Trace Wallace overheard the two green outlaws and hoped they were the claim jumpers he'd been looking for. He was working undercover and decided to fall in with the unlawful pair to protect the kid.

Hardheaded Sam was a handful and Trace quickly found out Sam wasn't a boy but a beautiful young woman hidden away in men's clothing which included a large hat which she never took off. As Trace watched her, studying her delicate features he caught a glimpse of her long, flowing tresses; his heart was swept away.

Trace liked his life as a loner and Sam had long played the role of a boy and knew nothing of love but he was changing and she was learning. With the arrival of another group of outlaws, things changed and it didn't look good for the pair.

Terri Crews writes wonderful tales of the old west. I have enjoyed both of her books and got so wrapped up in the characters, I couldn't put the books down. I'm a California native and know exactly where the story took place. Ms Crews' paints lovely pictures that sweep the reader back to Gold Rush days.

A girl dressed as a boy....who knew that it would end up in romance!?! This was a good book. I thought the story line was good. I like the setting and the characters. I was drawn in from the start and was interested throughout the book.

The cover photo is VERY misleading. This is a wonderfully romantic story of two generations. It gives realistic views of life in the goldrush days. I love Sam's spirit and enthusiasm and pride in life. It is a great read. Lots of emotions for the reader, too. One I will read again. Hope you enjoy this too.

A book with a little bit of everything from violence to romance. Some of the twists and turns were unexpected but you could pretty well guess how it was going to end. Very entertaining.

i didn't realize when i downloaded this book that it could be considered an inspirational romance. it made brief references to praying but it didn't get preachy or have quotes to the bible or anything like that. i usually don't read those type of books but i was pleasantly suprised with this one. ***spoiler***this book does have a scene of attempted rape but it wasn't too graphic and a brief shoot-out. i think my favorite part was when the father made an attempt to visit with a saloon girl and sam was having none of it.

I couldn't give this five stars because the heroin just wanted to be like a boy too much for my liking....Way too much, but it was still an all around good story

Excellent story line. I have read Terri's other books and this was just what I expected, an enjoyable read and just a little different from the others.
Good job.

Good and interesting characters. This is what I consider to be a good "clean" romance story. Would read more by this author.
