When he agreed to guard her, he never bargained on having to guard his heart.
Brilliant scientist Linnea Newberry is on the adventure of a lifetime, traveling the Santa Fe Trail with her grandfather, Dr. Howell, on a botanical expedition to Colorado Territory. She longs to be valued for her contributions and not seen as a helpless liability. But at every calamity she faces, her grandfather threatens to send her home.
After watching his ma suffer and die in childbirth, Flynn McQuaid has sworn off women and marriage forever. Headed west to start a new life, he has his hands full not only taking care of his younger siblings but also delivering cattle to his older brother. He doesn’t need more complications.
When Flynn rescues Linnea from drowning during a river crossing, Dr. Howell promptly
hires Flynn–unbeknownst to Linnea–to act as her bodyguard for the rest of the trip. As
Flynn fights against the many dangers of the trail, he soon finds himself in the greatest danger of all–falling for a woman he’s determined not to love.
I was glad this second book in the series finally came out. I really enjoyed the first book so I was excited to read Flynn’s story. However, if you haven’t read the first book don’t worry, you can fully enjoy this one.
Flynn and Linnae are complete opposites so I was curious to see how they would find their way to each other’s hearts. As usually, Jody build the romance up slowly until you can hardly take it anymore.
If you are Jody Hedlund fan and you/or you enjoy historical romance I am sure you will enjoy this book.
