Author: Rachel Wesson
Format: Kindle Edition
A wanted murderer, a young maid on the run...and five days left to save the town.
Accused of murder and shunned by his former peers, Colin Deane tells himself he doesn’t want a wife but will take one to save his hometown of Noelle. He owes Noelle. The town came to his rescue all those years ago, after the war, when the country was still a seething mass.
Cara Donnelly is on the run from the marriage her domineering Mama has arranged to a senator triple her age. Leaving her Boston family behind after they discover she was working as a maid at the local orphanage, she heads first for Denver. But when she finds out that she isn't yet free of the senator's clutches, she opts for a mail order husband and sanctuary in the mountains of Colorado.
Sparks fly when both Colin and Cara discover lies have been told, secrets are about to unfold and everything they once believed in is threatened. Can they come together to defeat the mistakes of the past or will it keep them apart forever?
