“In her heart, Kathryn knew this was the place she was meant to be. And she couldn’t wait to prove it to her father, herself, and anyone else who might doubt it.”
All her life, Kathryn has known she didn’t belong in the city where she was raised. So when she is offered a teaching position in the small, frontier town of Promise, in the Dakota Territory, she doesn’t hesitate to accept. When she arrives, she knows she’s found the place she belongs.
However, she is faced with many obstacles as she proves to her family, and herself, that she is cut out for life out here. The biggest problem she comes up against is in the form of a man who is determined to prove she won’t make it until snowfall.
“Miss Kathryn Reeves wouldn’t be here come the winter.
He guaranteed it.”
Colt Hammond has no desire to deal with another spoiled city girl who thinks living on the frontier will be a fun little adventure. He did that once, and he won’t make that mistake ever again.
Just because she’s living on his property, and teaching at the little schoolhouse where his children will be going, doesn’t mean he has time to look after her until she’s ready to admit defeat and head back home.
What neither of them counts on though, is how strong the promise of love can be between two people who are destined to be together.
