Hope’s marriage to an outlaw gives her some serious trust issues. She’s not a fan of the idea of another marriage of convenience, but if she’s going to get through the Oregon Train, she needs to stay with the wagon train…and that requires a husband.

Additional Comments:

  • I’m surprised Hopes not super jaded, having grown up in an orphanage.
  • Daniel’s relationship with his first wife isn’t given enough time to make the uber devotion to her seem real. But I think the books are too short for that kind of character development to truly take root. These are quick, clean reads.
  • I liked Daniel’s father and the servant. Didn’t get to learn much about the servant and her husband, but they seemed like good, solid people.
  • The dangers of the Oregon Trail are glossed over a bit.
  • The relationship of Daniel and Hope is predictable but still satisfying. Hopes trust issues had a realistic origin.
  • Her first husband could have used some more redeeming qualities. It would be a different kind of book if it took the more realistic stance on consummating the marriage, I guess.


Quick, clean wholesome historical romance.
