Lost Fortune - Historical Western Romance
"Is he her salvation…or her undoing?"
When Rilla Staab returns to Boston after graduating from a Parisian finishing school, she learns she’s not only an orphan, she’s illegitimate. She’s a love child of means, thanks to her father’s bequest, but all hope for a suitable match is gone.
Rilla buries her shame under an assumed identity and flees West, her only regret she may never again see the charming, grey-eyed Cal Dalton, whose brief acquaintance is burned in her memory.
Pinkerton agent Cal Dalton can’t forget the fleeting moment he held the prim and proper “Miss Privet” in his arms—the one bright spot in a long, fruitless, and distasteful assignment to find a mysterious heiress for a greedy client. When Cal receives a letter from Miss Privet confessing her true identity, he realizes the very woman he seeks is the woman who haunts his dreams.
It’s as simple and as complicated as that. Especially since Cal’s client thirsts for revenge—and Rilla’s very life hangs in the balance between Cal’s sworn duty and his heart.

While the story certainly started out interesting enough, it felt like the author wanted to rush and forced it. In the end it was not believable and I found myself rushing just to get it over with.
RATED PG. Short story. It had a decent story line. No steamy or hot scenes in this book though. Not so much as a kiss until the end. Definitely be a good romance for younger teen.
