The Range QueenBook - 2011
Joanna O’Keefe left her home and all that she held dear to join her husband in New Mexico Territory and pursue his vision of building a ranching empire. When she boarded the train, she was filled with hope. But when she arrived, she found her husband had been murdered and she was on her own. All she had left was the kindness of a handsome blue-eyed stranger and a fierce determination to see those dreams of an empire realized. On a dangerous overland trail drive across hundreds of miles, she would prove that nothing is impossible—and love can come when you least expect it.
Joanna O’Keefe never wanted an empire, but when her husband is murdered in the midst of pursuing his dream, nothing will stop her from carrying it out—even if it means she has to drive 1000 head of cattle across the Mohave Desert in partnership with a blue-eyed Scot whose soothing voice has a way of easing the ache in her heart.
