 A Brief Description:

On the brink of war with the Sioux, a young woman risks everything to expose the betrayal threatening the man she loves.

Christmas is coming, and the air at Fort Laramie has turned cold . . . but relations with the Sioux have turned colder. As tensions between soldiers and natives approach a tipping point, Ben Croftner and Jessica DuBois prepare a trap for Rand Campbell.

Bitter from rejection and backfired plans, Croftner has enlisted the help of Rand's new fiancee to keep Rand from ever returning to Sarah Montgomery . . . for whom his heart clearly still yearns.

Sarah is simply trying to move on with her life at Fort Laramie, but doing so under the watchful eyes of both Campbell--the man whose love she craves--and Croftner--the man whose lies have cost her everything. Will Rand fall victim to the conspiracy and go through with his wedding? Or will he declare his love for Sarah and make good on the promises that brought her into the rugged western territories?

This is the third installment in A Journey of the Heart series by Colleen Coble. This is a quick read, but well worth it.  This is a suspenseful story interlaced with a romance that is historically set in the spring of 1866.
The story is centered around Sarah Montgomery and her life at Fort Laramie. 
The author brings us strong characters who you can instantly like. For instance, I immediately like Sarah, but feel empathy towards her.  She has deep feelings for Rand, but knows he will doesn't return her feelings.  She has tried to forget him, but with running into him at the fort constantly it's not easy.  She has been talking with Issac Liddle, but she only likes him as a friend.  Whereas Rand was harder to warm up to for me.  Rand has become engaged to Jessica.  What he doesn't realize is that his feelings for Sarah is written all over his face. He is always trying to protect her and make things more bearable. 
  The imagery she weaves in the story brings the story to life. 
I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone. 
I received this book from Netgalley for a honest opinion without bias.  The opinions and thoughts are my own.
