"Bessie Randall had no intention of moving to Wyoming. But could the life she would never choose be better than the one she had planned? Bessie is shocked when she finds out that her sister Lenore has used her name to correspond with a soldier she's never met--and that she's actually married the man by proxy with Bessie's name. And if Bessie contests it, her sister could go to jail for forgery. Bessie has always felt responsible for her younger sister, and she believes she has no choice but to do the honorable thing and travel west to meet up with Jasper Mendenhall. With his sister Jessica's reprimand about marrying sight-unseen still ringing in his ears, Jasper is shocked when he meets the stagecoach. The little wren who meets him is not the beauty whose picture he holds in his hand. Jasper plans to annul the marriage and send Bessie back to Boston. She's a city girl and he's not sure she could even survive--much less be happy--at Fort Bowie. But Jasper's orders to return to Fort Bowie are moved up, and he has no choice but to take Bessie with him. To his surprise, he finds much to like in the quiet young woman: things like humor and grit. But even those qualities may not be enough as the Apaches move in, determined to eradicate the fort in their midst. Can God mend their hearts together in spite of the circumstances?"--

Disappointing. It was all 'love at first sight'--"her heart quickened at his touch" type of thing. No basis for a relationship. And every other page had a reference to blushing: 'her cheeks pinked,' 'she blushed,' heat rose in her cheeks.'

Enjoyed to read Jasper's story. I had no idea this book is the second part to another novel of hers that just came out. However you necessarily do not need to read the other inorder to understand the plot... You catch up soon. It was a good sweet romantic where we see both characters find out and discover what real love really is. The only thing was that I was wanting more.... I felt the story was too short for what I usually read... It was a small read but enjoyable!
