A callous deception. A perilous escape. A tremulous truce. Can they overcome their misgivings to trust in love again?
Phoebe Mortimer is well aware she is her family’s ugly duckling. Which is why she knows she should have known better than to believe that the charming, handsome Eamon O’Rourke would be interested in her. When he proves he thought of her as nothing more than a momentary distraction on the long journey to Fort Benton, her beliefs about men are solidified.
Eamon O’Rourke exults in his unfettered life. He took a vow with his younger brother never to marry. Never to be a father. With his huge family, he knows he will be busy enough as an uncle. However, he never expects to meet Phoebe. When she stirs up emotions he never thought to feel, he suppresses them and pushes her away. Hurting her more deeply than he ever intended to.
Now, Phoebe’s in danger and Eamon fears she will refuse any aid from him. For she has little faith in his fickle promises. How will he convince her of the sincerity of his love now that she has every reason to doubt him?
Discover the O’Rourke Family Montana Saga set in the frontier town of Fort, Benton, Montana Territory! Follow as each sibling forgives childhood heartbreak, discovers love, and finds their happily ever after!
Set in 1865, Montana Territory, the author's descriptions give a vivid picture of the wild ruggedness of Fort Benton.
The O'Rourke family is strong, committed to family, and helping the less fortunate that are being victimized. When the Mortimer sisters end up on the steamship in St. Louis heading for Fort Benton to take refuge with their uncle, little do they know the danger that waits ahead. The O'Rourke's come to the rescue and is a force not to be taken lightly. They are committed to the cause, respect women, and see love as something to be cherished.
The story is suspenseful, fraught with hardship and pain, but is also steeped in courage, trust, and faith. A very inspirational and uplifting story. I can't wait to read the next in the series.
