1910 found me arriving in Emerson Pass with my entire life in one small suitcase.
Compared to Boston, life wouldn’t be easy in this tiny frontier town.
Everyone was counting on me. My family to provide for them and the mayor to teach the town’s children.
I was determined to make it work, but things didn’t start off well.
A stray gunshot spooked the horses, and I ended up face-first in the snow.
Until rescue came in the strong, capable hands of widower and single father Lord Barnes.
English royalty, older, and affluent.
Despite our rapport and my instant connection with his children, courtship was out of the question due to our age and class differences. Almost as if by fate, our chance at happiness was within reach unless the realities of the unsettled mountain territory tear us apart.
