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?

Amazing Love Story!!
I absolutely enjoyed this story and the beautiful love story. I cried and experienced all the feels. The first I’ve read of Peggy’s was the first in the Yellowstone series and fell in love with her style of writing and they she’s able to capture the heart, no matter the time or place. Thank you Peggy for another remarkable book 🎉
This book was so surprising and beautifully gentle. I’m not a fan of over description and I will admit I am extremely ignorant to anything western or anything to do with the Oregon trail and I still followed well and really got a feel for the scenery and got some educational value from reading. Love it!
Come Home to Me
I don’t like books that involve time travel so I never read them. But I did download this one for free and I’m glad I did. It was very good. Great love story with a look at the history of people making their way
West. Enjoyed every chance I got to pick it back up and read. Great author. I will be reading more of Peggy L Henderson’s books.
