3 posts | 3 read | 1 reading
A rollicking, funny historical romance of mistaken identity, wagon trains and an irresistible attraction Alexandra Barratt has found the perfect man its a shame he thinks shes a boy. Fleeing from the murderous Grady brothers with a stolen fortune hidden in her luggage and her younger brother and sister in tow, Alex disguises herself as a boy to join a wagon train headed West ... a wagon train captained by the irresistible Luke Slater. At first, Alex cant believe the way every woman in town falls at Lukes feet, including her suddenly flirtatious sister. But when she sees him naked in the bathtub, she finds herself swooning over him too. If only she could wash the muck of her face and show him who she really is... As for Luke, he has no idea that the ragtag boy in his care is none other than the woman of his dreams. But when circumstances connive to throw Luke and Alex into each others arms, their relationship becomes very complicated indeed. In fact, with the brutal Silas Grady in pursuit, keeping their secret becomes a matter of life and death...

Who doesn‘t love a good girl-disguised-as-a-boy falling in love with the wagon train leader story? I didn‘t expect to like this one as much as I did even though clearly everyone guessed that Alexandra was a girl except for Luke. Then he battles his feelings, but there was a happy ending for this historical #saveahorse book. #joyousjanuary book 1

Though published in 2018, this reads like an old-school romance, and not in a good way. The hero is a philandering jerk, there's an uncomfortable love triangle between the hero, heroine, and her sister, and the racial dynamics are problematic at best (a character called The Mexican; a stereotypical Native American who shows up for barely two chapters; fugitive slaves used to show the white heroine's goodness and the white villains' badness).
