Sean O’Connor, newly arrived from Ireland, is determined to strike it rich in the gold fields. Ten years ago, Lottie Graham lost her lover to gold fever. She has built her farm and raised her son alone. She is determined never to love a prospector. But Sean needs a home for the winter and Lottie needs help after she is injured in a fire. Strong willed and stubborn, Lottie fights their growing attraction, but love is more precious than gold.
“A wonderful story of courage, dreams, and everlasting love. A book to savour.” —New York Times Bestselling Author Jo Beverley
Emma Douglas fled scandal and disgrace in San Francisco to build a careful, if constrained life, as the schoolmarm in Prospect, a gold rush town in the mountains of British Columbia. Women are scarce in Prospect but Emma remains aloof, until Grey North, self-exiled British peer, blows through her cautious life like a strong wind, scattering her rules and manners like withered leaves. She dislikes him and she tells him so, yet when past secrets threaten her future, she turns to Grey for help.
No matter what Nick Cooper does to stop her, Maggie will make a successful bed and breakfast out of The Lilacs, the country home she has inherited from a beloved great aunt. He can send all the threatening letters he wants. He can destroy her kitchen with a bulldozer. He can even try drowning her. It will not matter. Maggie Ann Keaton is staying in Hiram’s Landing!
Of course, Nick Cooper continuously proclaims his innocence. But Maggie is reluctant to trust the handsome charmer. For if Nick isn’t trying to harm her, then who is?
