If you have read the previous books in the Call of the Rockies series, you will recognize that this book is French’s story. French’s real name is Jean-Jacques and we, the reader, discover that he has been searching for his childhood love for eleven years. When he finds her, he is just as honorable and true to her as he has always been. But there is a lot he doesn’t know about Colette’s recent life.
The author did a good job of putting Colette into a situation that forced her to hide who she truly was. She had so many secrets that she was keeping and I really liked seeing her eventually open up to Jean-Jacques, who was a truly good man.
This story can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel if you have not read the other books in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
This epic journey is the only way to leave her secrets behind.
After eleven years spent looking for the girl who stole his heart, Jean-Jacques Baptiste—better known as French to his friends—is tempted to give up. Until the day he spotted the flaxen-haired stranger traveling the wooded path with Blackfoot Indians. He never imagined he’d find his childhood friend masquerading as a man in this Rocky Mountain wilderness, hundreds of miles from the Canadian town where he last saw her. No matter her reasons, he can’t let her go this time.
Colette Mignon’s life has become a cacophony of lies, including the fact that her Blackfoot Indian companions believe she’s a man. She’s willing to live the taxing life of a trapper in these desolate mountains as long as it keeps her secrets hidden. When her childhood friend and first love discovers her, his determination to help might put everything at risk.
As the worst of her past threatens to catch up with her, the hope for Colette’s new life shatters. But no matter what, she must protect the one good thing that came from all her mistakes. Though French is determined to stay at her side, she can’t let him become entangled in the perilous consequences of her actions. If only it wasn’t so painful to push him away. The danger pressing in may leave her only one choice—leave everything behind…again.
