Southern belle Evie Fremont has lost everything—except hope. When she answers an advertisement for marriage to Alex Cameron who lives in the wilds of Indian Territory, she has few illusions that he could be a man she might fall in love with—especially as his secrets begin to unfold.
Ex-Confederate soldier Alex Cameron needs a mother for his two young half-Cherokee sons more than he needs a wife—or so he tells himself. But when his past threatens his future on his wedding day, he and Evie are both forced to acknowledge their new love has come to stay—along with their FOUND HEARTS.
Oh, Dear God! Evie tried to keep the shock from her expression. She had come all the way across the country to marry a man who operated a saloon—the very thing that had destroyed Trey’s life, and hers! With everything sold at auction but their clothing, Evie had secretly managed to hold on to two pieces of her mother’s jewelry. The ruby necklace, she would never part with. But the emerald bracelet had fetched enough money to buy a train ticket from South Carolina to her Aunt Felicia and Uncle Arthur’s home in Chicago. That’s where she’d seen Mr. Cameron’s advertisement.
Now, to find out he had misrepresented himself, was almost more than she could bear. A saloon owner! She wanted to laugh at the irony of her situation. She and Trey had parted bitterly over his drinking—and she was soon going to be married to a man who undoubtedly drank like a fish, but also promoted alcohol to others. Indeed, who made his living from the Devil’s brew.
