Berry Warfield along with her creep of a father and Rachel, (who is pregnant and supposed to be her young stepmother but the father never married her) head from Ohio to Missouri for a land claim.
Berry is a beauty but has a short fuse and is at times TSTL. My favorite character in this story is Fain who is best friends with the H, Simon. Fain falls in love with Rachel and he is just so sweet.
There is tons of action and suspense in this story and its a real page turner. There is also some good steam in the romance. It seems historically accurate and the descriptions of the territory make you feel as if you are right there with the characters.
