h more than 7 million books in print, RT Book Reviews Career Achievement Award–winning and USA Today Bestselling author Rosanne Bittner pens a historical Western romance filled with dangerous cowboys, capable heroines, and an epic love story that sweeps across the Old West.

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.

Like the land of his birth, half–Cherokee 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…

Praise for Bestselling Historical Western Romances by Rosanne Bittner:
“A hero to set feminine hearts aflutter…western romance readers will thoroughly enjoy this.” –Library Journal
“Fans of such authors as Jodi Thomas and Georgina Gentry will enjoy Bittner’s thrilling tale of crime and love in the Old West.”-Booklist Online

“One of the most powerful voices in western romance.”-RT Book Reviews


A re-issue from the 1990’s, but still an epic tale.
An epic, and gripping love story that spans years. Filled with grief, tears, struggles, turmoil,pain, love and romance. This tale spans across the Old West.
Well written with intrigue, danger, secrets and a few twists and turns. Not to mention a half-breed Cowboy, a landowner’s Cowgirl daughter add a transcontinental railroad project into the mix and together readers are guaranteed an epic love story. Think “Hell on Wheels”, the epic T.V. saga.
An absolute delight to read. I look forward to the next adventure from Ms. Bittner. A must read for fans of Americana Historical Romance, the Transcontinental railroad, epic sagas, and family sagas. An enjoyable and satisfying read!
