In the second sweeping Western romance in a series written by a Rita Award-winning author, a woman risks losing the love of her life by trying to keep her past a secret.
Blonde, daring, and powerful, Archer Hanson was like a Viking explorer—and the territory he wanted to discover was Meredith Tolliver. Soaring high in his giant balloon, Meredith felt as if she were waltzing on a cloud. Archer loved her, she loved him, and anything was possible. But inevitably, they had to return to earth again. That was when the inescapable fears that had crippled her emotionally came back to wrench her from his arms. Archer was strong and confident, and he believed she was, too; she appeared talented, successful, and self-possessed. But how could he go on loving her if he ever discovered the true Meredith Tolliver? How could she face her own life without his love?
