IN A LAND OF OPPORTUNITY
Sunny Landers wants a big life-as big and free as the untamed land that stretches before her. Land she will help her father conquer to achieve his dream of a transcontinental railroad. She won't let a cold, creaky wagon, murderous bandits or stampeding buffalo stand in her way. She wants it all-including Colt Travis.
ALL THE ODDS WERE AGAINST THEM
Like the land of his birth, halfCherokee Colt Travis is wild, hard, and dangerous. He is a drifter, a wilderness scout with no land and no prospects hired by the Landers family to guide their wagon train. He knows Sunny is out of his league and her father would never approve, but beneath the endless starlit sky, anything seems possible...

Veteran western romance author Bittner (Outlaw Hearts) pairs a fabulously wealthy heiress with an adventurous plains scout on a tense and twisting epic journey that will leave readers cheering. In the mid-19th century, 15-year-old Sunny Landers is being molded by her tycoon father to take over his business, and that means joining him on a trip from Omaha to the Rockies to survey the possibility of building a transcontinental railroad. She finds an untamed country that’s easy to love—and meets handsome Colt Travis, the orphaned son of a Texan missionary and his Cherokee wife. Though Colt shares her attraction, they both understand that they are too different for a successful union. While Sunny works to carry out her father’s dream of a transcontinental railroad despite resistance from within her family and years of civil war, Colt must navigate his love of the land and his complex heritage as the world around him changes and duty conflicts with friendship. The carefully woven story stumbles only when the characters stop behaving sensibly in order to expand the plot. Agent: Maura Kye-Casella, Don Congdon Associates. (Oct.)
