Aurora Young is one of the lucky ones. Her freedom from San Francisco’s Red Light District came by way of an anonymous benefactor. After coming into the knowledge of God’s love and redemption, Aurora realizes her destiny is to save sisters still working in brothels. Leaving the past behind, she heads to Montana and buys a large spread of land to house women of ill-repute. But a run-in with an infamous cattle baron threatens the plans she’s put in place…and everything she’s come to love.
Donovan Ramsey owns the largest cattle ranch in the region and has plans to purchase the land adjoining his. When newcomer Aurora Young arrives and purchases it before he can, his goal is to do all he can to acquire it back, even if that means trumping the good will of his tenacious yet lovely new neighbor. He is a man used to getting what he wants and isn’t thrilled when his heart begins to soften. Donovan must decide if it’s worth fighting his growing admiration for Aurora, or taking back what is rightfully his.
Duty Before Love
Reverend John Palmer was about to profess his love to Josie Callahan when he was called on a mission to Rock Point, Montana. There, he promptly found himself in a situation where a forced marriage was his only way out of a town known for its impurity—to say the least. Bound by duty, he brings his new wife back to Pine City until he can figure out what to do with her. And when a risky opportunity to provide for her comes along, he makes a poor but desperate decision. It’s in everyone’s best interest—someday they will understand, and if he’s lucky, even agree with his choices.
Josie has been waiting for John to acknowledge their love for one another. Flirtation and attraction no longer sustained her. She was not getting any younger and what was he waiting for, anyway? She has the town’s most wanted bachelor, Marshal LaSalle, hanging on her every word, yet she cannot get herself to settle down with a man, unless it’s for love. She’s shocked when the man she believed was supposed to be hers, shows up with a wife. Now, with her faith in the balance and a call to help someone in need, Josie is forced to decide…between obedience and love.
