Overview
Saddle up for a wildly fun ride with the Wilde sisters

Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister--and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It's a risk--they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as "boys"--but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East.

Local land agent Aaron Masterson is fascinated with Kylie from the moment her long hair falls from her cap. But now that he knows her secret, can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government? And when someone tries to force Kylie off her land, does he have any hope of convincing her that marrying him and settling on the frontier is the better option for her future?

"Another great laugh-out-loud historical romance with memorable characters who have charm, style, grace, and a bit of mischief."
--RT Book Reviews on In Too Deep

"Connealy's style is fast-paced and spritely and sure to keep drawing fans."
--Publishers Weekly

"With her trademark humor, Connealy weaves a delightful tale that is sure to please her fans and win new readers."

Connealy’s (Stuck Together) view of the Idaho Territory in 1866 is a surprising delight in this inaugural novel of her Wild at Heart romance series. Kylie Wilde had followed her two older sisters, all disguised as men, into the Civil War after their brother’s death. As if that weren’t enough, after the war, her father insisted the whole family move out West to homestead, using the credit earned from military service, in honor of their deceased brother. Kylie, however, is not cut out for homesteading and is only biding her time until she can return to the East and what she calls civilization. Their plan goes awry when Kylie is caught by land agent and veteran Aaron Masterson, who finds her in a skirt and sees right through her sisters’ disguises. Love blooms despite their differences—and despite the best attempts of mysterious persons attempting to drive them apart. The light tale is spiced with both humor and a glimpse into the darker side of the great land rush. Agent: Natasha Kern, Natasha Kern Literary Agency. (Sept.)
