Historical Romance, Western Romance
The western frontier of British Columbia hardly seems a likely place for romance. Filthy, terrified and confused, Hope Booker is waiting to be sold off the ‘bride' ship. Luke Harcourt happens upon the sale. It's not love at first sight, but he feels compelled to save her from a life of slavery and prostitution. To allay her fears of being raped by him, Luke promises never to touch her. Being a man of his word, this is a pledge he quickly finds almost impossible to keep.
Battling their growing attraction to each other, they must learn to live together in the forests of the wild and almost unexplored mountains.
White water, Indians, wolves, bears, and some of the most evil men the frontier has ever seen threaten their potential 'happily-ever-after'. To make matters worse, Luke disappears, leaving Hope with a troubling pregnancy and facing the prospect of the worst winter in ten years alone. Luke, meanwhile, is desperately trying to stay alive and get back to Hope. But will he make it in time?
