Journey now to Fort Bliss in West Texas of 1874, where...
A Battle Is About to be Waged Between Two Hearts.

Fashion artist Priscilla Hutchens has a grudge against the army that has ruined her family and taken the people she holds most dear. When her twin niece and nephew are left orphaned at Fort Bliss, Texas, she swoops down on Fort Bliss to gain custody of them immediately.

There is just one thing standing in the way—Post surgeon Major Elliot Ryder, who is also the twins uncle, also claims the children and thinks he knows what is best for them.

Priscilla and Elliot will cross swords, but each will have to lay down arms if they are to find a lasting peace on which to form the family both are longing for. Who will win the battle? Or will a truce be called for the sake of love and family?

Although I was not familiar with this author, the book's description, along with the fact that it is set in Texas, enticed me to read this enjoyable novel. While much is predictable, as many romances are, Erica Vetsch manages to add a few twists along the way. The interactions between Priscilla and Elliot are amusing as they clash and spar and try so hard to ignore the obvious solution to the question of who should raise their mutual niece and nephew. Vetsch creates a wonderful cast of secondary characters (although some are wonderfully irritating!) that add to the story and provide food for thought for Priscilla as well as the reader. I will be watching for more from this author. Take a journey to Fort Bliss, Texas today!
