Kidnapped from a stagecoach, debutante Elizabeth Davenport escapes her gold-thirsty captors with her virtue intact, only to find her heart stolen by the dashing Cavalry Officer who rescued her. Elizabeth is anxious to leave behind the dirty, dusty West, but not the Cavalry-committed bachelor, Lieutenant Ryan. Though separated by class, her heart cannot forget him.
Lieutenant Eric Ryan fails at nothing, except romance. Determined not to break Elizabeth's heart, he pushes her toward another. But he has a nagging suspicion there is something hidden behind her fiancé’s scholarly manner. With Eric's desire growing for Elizabeth, he finds himself on new ground. However, he’s soon to realise that falling in love could be dangerous for both of them.Click here for an excerpt from the book
