This unusual story starts in 1874, when Garrett Rowe sees Kaye Burns and decides that they were meant to be together. Kaye is having none of this; she just wants to go where there is civilization and folks with dreams - but not pipe-dreams. She sees anyone interested in mining to be a pipe-dreamer.

I was a bit alarmed by the whole discussion of reincarnation and the fact that Rowe KNOWS he's lived a previous life with Kaye. I thought we were heading into time-travel or fantasy (2 genres that I find bewildering; sad-but-true, I've never acquired a taste for either). Gradually, the reincarnation thing was dropped, as Rowe found other ways to entice Kaye to become interested in him.

Dorothy Garlock used an interesting device to resolve the problem of Garrett's brother, Justin. Actually, Justin was interesting until I realized that Garlock had created the man without any redeeming characteristics.

So often, authors write a story leading up to the marriage of the main 2 characters and then close the book. This is the 3rd story by Garlock I've read where the story continues long after the marriage. The author does this deftly because I was absorbed in the story until the end. 4 stars

Katy suddenly knows that she, her sister, and her tiny niece are the only people left in a desolate Montana ghost town. Without a horse or a rifle, they hadn't a chance of crossing a wilderness crawling with outlaws, Indians, and grizzlies. All Katy had was a steely will to survive and a Derringer in her pocket. Then a stranger named Garrick Rowe rode down the empty main street. He wasn't a desperado; he was a rugged frontiersman with a daring scheme to bring this town back to life--and some personal plans for Katy. Gazing boldly into her lovely blue eyes, he proclaimed her his woman--a declaration that only made Katy more independent than ever! Yet his words intrigued her, and his insistent kisses whispered that her destiny was to fight for this wild land . . . and to surrender to a man with the strength, the courage, and the passion to make her dreams come true.

The arrogance of the words sent a thrill of excitment through Katy even while her independent sprit rebelled against it. She made an attempt to get control of her mind, only to find it an impossible task as his lips traveled over her forehead to her eyelids and then down.....
