In this entrancing conclusion to her Orphan Train trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller bewitches with a sensual tale of the oldest Chalmers sister, who dares to risk everything in pursuit of a dream…
Caroline Chalmers may seem like a staid schoolmistress, but when her promised husband is arrested for a crime that he says he didn’t commit, she walks boldly into a Wyoming frontier saloon and asks former Confederate raider Guthrie Hayes to help her plot a jailbreak. Caroline believes she wants married life with a respectable man—and the disreputable, wildly handsome Guthrie certainly doesn’t fit the bill. But when he kisses her, she is flooded with a shameless passion that leaves her shaken to the core…and longing for more.
Guthrie’s hard-won hopes for his future don’t involve helping a naive girl on a foolhardy mission. There’s something about the lovely Caroline’s sensual response to his caresses, however, that makes him forget his sensible plans in an overwhelming yearning to teach this lovely wildcat the true meaning of desire.
