When Lisette Pelletier answers an ad to become a physician in the frontier town of Willow Wood, Idaho, she knows her life will change forever. What she doesn’t expect is to fall in love with the U.S. Marshal whose life she saves on her way to town.
Federal Marshal Grayson Dutton spent his career protecting pioneers, chasing down bandits, settling disputes before they erupted into gunfire, and returning fire when needed. None of it prepared him for dealing with a feisty lady doc who can’t see when she’s in over her head.
When Grayson hears the gang of outlaws that attacked the stagecoach that brought Lisette to Willow Wood has targeted the lady doc, he’ll stop at nothing to protect her. Lisette doesn’t want to give the lawman the reins to her life. She came west to serve the people of Willow Wood, not hide under her bed in fear at the first sign of danger.
She certainly didn’t plan to fall for a long-legged lawman whose kisses make her dream of marriage, babies, and happily-ever-after, all the things that conflict with her call to medicine. Can she find a place in her life and her heart for love? Can Grayson tame the wild filly before she gets both of them killed?
As I began reading this book, I loved reading about a strong and determined woman who was determined to fulfill her dreams of practicing medicine in the wild west. I love how the characters come alive through the pages of this book. Starting off with a stagecoach attack that goes wrong for the criminals, Lisette finds herself in danger because of men seeking revenge against her.
Grayson is a marshal and the son of the man who hired Lisette to come to their town as a doctor. However, the two find themselves thrown together constantly.
I loved the pace of this story as well as the premise. So if you like historical works of fiction set in the west, check out this book for yourself.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from CelebrateLit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
Teresa Slack loves reading, writing, and falling in love. Creating clean and wholesome western romances where fearless cowboys still sweep independent heroines off their feet was an easy choice for her.
She writes from her home in the beautiful southern Ohio hills, which she shares with her husband and rescue dog and rescue cat. Any errors and typos she blames on the cat randomly running across her keyboard.
