*from the author*
Grayson Montgomery has just let his mouth get him into trouble again—quite literally. Being promptly informed that he must either marry the young lady he was caught with in a scandalous embrace or face a possible seven years of hard labor, Gray makes the obvious choice to marry her. It’ll just be a marriage of circumstance with no chance of either getting hurt.

Michaela Davis is in a state of shock. First, she was kissed nearly senseless by a sweet talking stranger, only to have the bliss end with the uncomfortable realization that they’d been seen! And by her father, no less. If that’s not bad enough, who she thought was just a charming stranger is none other than the heartless cad who broke her young heart as a girl!

Circumstances might dictate that they marry, but they’re both about to learn that circumstances don’t always bring about a happily-ever-after—only they can control that.


THE OFFICER AND THE TRAVELER by Rose Gordon is a historical romance set in Fort Gibson, America. The third and final in the “Fort Gibson Officesr” series, but can be read as a stand alone. See, “The Officer and the Bostoner”, and “The Officer and the Southerner”. Another hit for this author! I loved this story! I think this was my favorite by far of the “Fort Gibson Officers” series. Fast paced, and adventure filled. Follow Grayson Montgomery and Michaela Davis on their journey to happiness and love. Can Michaela forgive Grayson for breaking her young hearts years prior? The heart wants what the heart wants even if circumstances don’t always bring a happily ever after, only  Michaela and Grayson can do that. Michaela came to be at Fort Gibson because of her sister in a the prior story, you see her sister was a mail-order bride. Michaela and Grayson was caught in a compromising situation, they where caught kissing….Can two flawed characters come together to find love and happiness?

Ms. Gordon, sure knows how to draw a reader into her stories, with her engaging, charming characters and her intriguing storyline. A fast paced story of Military life in Fort Gibson,their struggles, their quest for survival and love. A not to miss story and if you haven’t read the others in this series,I would recommend reading them also. I enjoyed this series and look forward to Ms. Gordon next grand adventure. A must read for any readers who enjoy America West, military life in the Frontier, history, and romance. Received for an honest review from the author.
