    There’s only one rancher for Rosie Duggan, but the course of true love never did run smooth.

    It is springtime, 1871, and Rosie Duggan is in love with Joshua Hampton, a handsome rancher’s son. Joshua is seven years her junior, but they have fallen hard and hope to marry.

    Joshua’s parents have other ideas. Firstly, they believe that Rosie is too old for their son. Secondly, they do not want Joshua marrying into the Duggan family. They believe that the Duggans are tainted by their association with Catherine Montgomery and her mysterious past.

    Rosie only wants the best for everyone she loves, so she makes several difficult decisions, preparing to sacrifice her own happiness to protect those around her.

    But sometimes the people we love are prepared to make sacrifices, too, so Rosie could well find the happiness she craves with her gorgeous rancher.

    EXCERPT

    Finally, as darkness fell, Rosie heard the thundering of horses’ hooves. That had to be the men.

    She opened the front door and peered into the night. Sure enough, three horses approached the perimeter fence. Two of the men jumped down from their mounts and hurried toward the house while the third one, Rosie suspected it was Emmett, took the mares over to the barn. 

    Kenan reached her first.

    “Is she…is it…I’ve been so…” He leaned over his knees and gasped for breath.

    “Just get inside, you fool. Catherine is well. She’s waiting for you.”

    He obeyed and Rosie turned back to the porch. 

    There he was. Dusty. Tired. Road weary. But as handsome as she remembered. 

    “Joshua,” she whispered his name then sighed as he took her into his arms. She relaxed against him, allowing his strength and vitality to form their reassuring circle around her.

    “Oh Rosie, I’ve missed you so much. Has the baby arrived? Is Catherine well? Each time I’m away, it gets harder I swear.”

    You have no idea…

    “Yes, Catherine is very well. She and Kenan have a daughter. And how are you?” She pulled out of his embrace and looked at him. Even in the semi-darkness, with his face illuminated only by the light from within the house, his eyes seemed intense as the sky on a clear summer’s day. They burned into her, reaching down inside her and igniting her passion for him. But this would not do. She had to end this. She had to divorce herself from her feelings for him so that she could bid him farewell.

    She did. It was true. 

    But an idea began to form. She would tell Joshua that they had no future, that he should leave and never return. But she could allow herself something before she severed their ties. Why not? If she was to experience a lifetime of suffering, an eternity of heartbreak in a cold, lonely bed, then she could give herself something first…some sweet memories to treasure for the rest of her days.
