Jake Owens is tired of life on his parents' Montana ranch, catering to city folk who want a taste of old-fashioned country living. He enjoys life in the fast lane, with fast cars and even faster women. When he falls in with the wrong crowd and is accused of murder, a stranger's bizarre offer at a second chance might be his only hope to clear his name.
Rachel Parker is highly devoted to her family. A tragedy prompts a daring move to the Oregon Territory for a fresh start in a new land. After meeting the wagon train's scout, the meaning of a fresh start may be more than she ever imagined.
Jake can't believe he's been sent back in time to act as scout for a wagon train headed for Oregon, and given the added burden of keeping one emigrant woman safe during the journey. He and Rachel are confused by their attraction to each other. Jake's ill-mannered, unconventional ways are overshadowed only by his notorious reputation. Rachel's traditional values and quiet, responsible character are the complete opposite of what attracts Jake to a woman. When their forbidden attraction turns to love, what will happen at the end of the trail?

At first, I thought the story is about a cowboy meeting a modern woman from the corporate world. Common love struck thing but clearly I was mistaken. Can’t get enough of this book that I finished reading it in less than a day. Highly recommended. Love the twist and the ending. Thank you.
I wasn't sure about this book, I was prepared to read the first few chapters and skip to the end. It was more of a curiosity on how it will end more than anything else, if I'm honest. I was pleasantly surprised how this book took me back to more than a 100 years ago & then back to the present. It was brilliant and cried a few tears for Jake.
Very absorbing story. Keep you engaged to the end.
