This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Beautiful, spirited heiress McKenna Frasier–daughter to one of the Butte Copper Kings—vowed eternal love to Sinclair Douglas before she left for college and an introduction to society. Four years in New York and travel abroad have opened her eyes, making her realize she wanted more than marriage and a simple Montana life. But when McKenna commits an unforgivable transgression and destroys her reputation, her dreams are shattered and she is forced to return to Montana disgraced, disowned and unmarriageable.
Sinclair Douglas left Butte to escape the Frasier power and Frasier name, but suddenly all anyone talks about in Marietta is scandalous McKenna Douglas, Paradise Valley’s new teacher. Sin doesn’t want to know about McKenna anymore. He doesn’t want to have to help her, and he sure as hell doesn’t want to love her. But McKenna has lived so long in his heart that it’s her home–even if she doesn’t deserve to be there.
But if there is one man who knows how to rebuild a life when all dreams have been smashed, it’s fierce, uncompromising Sinclair Douglas. Can Sinclair and McKenna heal enough to find their own Christmas miracle, and one more chance at love?
Away in Montana
Oh Jane you tore me apart! I have most of your books. They know mostly that there is some fun and everyone is really ok. This story starts at the beginning of Marietta. I had tissues in my lap so I could grab one quick. Sinclair worked for her father running his mines until he couldn't take it anymore. McKenna was sent west to Montana because she was fallen. Now she lives in a cabin and teaches the children. Once upon a time they loved each other but she was only for herself. His sister Johanna and Ellie, a rancher's daughter, drive stakes into McKenna to keep her away from him. But he can't stay away from her. I would recommend this to everyone. Don't miss the big blast at the end. Now I have to wait forever to get the next book. I volunteered to read and review this book.
second chance love set at Christmas
Beautiful story of a second chance love at Christmas set in 1800s Montana. McKenna returns as the school teacher after having from society in New York. The love she left behind, Sinclair, is still there but not ready to forgive. Still in love, they must find a way to forgive and make peace before they can reunite. A mine accident brings them together with a promise of marriage if Sinclair survives. I love a wonderful HEA in a Christmas story.
Away in Montana
I loved this book! I really like a good historical romance. Being transported to frontier Montana and getting a peek at what life may have been like back then is such a treat.
McKenna and Sinclair were great characters. She is trying to get on her feet after being disowned by her father and dropped from high society. Sinclair has made it on his own in Montana through hard work. Although they were childhood friends, things had changed between them. I loved seeing how much they still cared for each other after years apart.
