Synopsis

From acclaimed author Anna Schmidt comes a sweeping historical Western romance about the unbreakable bonds of family, second chances, and a whole lot of heart in the Wild West.

"I barely know you, and yet there's something about you that I trust. But why?"
"You know me, Maria. I'm the guy trouble follows. Best if you keep your distance."
She ran the backs of her fingers along the line of his jaw. "And what if I don't want to keep my distance?" Her voice was barely a whisper.
"Fair warning," he murmured, and pulled her close.

Caught between a greedy corporation and a desperate love of the land, Maria Porterfield barely has time to mourn her father's death. If her family is to survive, it'll be up to her to take charge-but she can't do it alone. When a mysterious drifter rides into town, the handsome cowboy seems like an answer to her prayers. But Chet isn't interested in settling down, no matter how tempting the offer...

Chet made his way West looking for a fresh start-the last thing he wants is to get involved in someone else's fight. But something about Maria awakens a powerful need to protect the fierce beauty at all costs. He never thought he'd find love, but as danger presses in, he may find there's more beyond the next horizon than just another long and dusty trail.

"A feisty heroine and a hero eager to make everything right. What more could a reader want?"-Leigh Greenwood, USA Today bestselling author of To Love and to Cherish

    The Drifter

    Schmidt takes readers easily back in time to the western expansion in the Arizona Territory. It was easy to picture and very believable. She melds the beauty of the land with the hardships faced by those living there. The tone in which Schmidt writes makes it even more entertaining. The tone is light and palpable, twisting and melding to create the perfect backdrop for the plot. She truly creates the perfect setting for her intimate plot. The characters that Schmidt develops truly meld with the story. Maria`s story touched my heart while her actions made her a fantastic heroine. The way that her story intertwines with Chet`s really made me love the pair all the more. The characters are very well developed, allowing readers to feel for them and travel along with them during the suspense and mystery that Schmidt develops. This was a great novel to launch Schmidt`s latest series. It was a heartfelt and suspenseful novel that truly brings the Arizona Territory to life. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
