Meg was on the run from a riverboat gambling scheme gone awry. Schoolteaching had been a nightmare and her brief stint at the brothel had turned into a disaster.
Robert was a brand new Mountie, sent by his uncle on an expedition across the Canadian frontier in hopes that the adventure will make a man of young Robbie. But that task soon falls to Meg.
Together they face lawless frontiersmen, prairie fires, and the most frightening danger of all--falling hopelessly in love.
But Robert's destiny is to be a leader in the newly minted Canadian government. Marrying an older, Irish woman with a questionable past would be the ruin of him. She knew, that even if he didn't.
Just when Meg finds the courage to face her future, she’s on the run again.
