On the brink of war with the Sioux, a young woman risks everything to expose the betrayal threatening the man she loves.
Christmas is coming, and the air at Fort Laramie has turned cold . . . but relations with the Sioux have turned colder. As tensions between soldiers and natives approach a tipping point, Ben Croftner and Jessica DuBois prepare a trap for Rand Campbell.
Bitter from rejection and backfired plans, Croftner has enlisted the help of Rand’s new fiancée to keep Rand from ever returning to Sarah Montgomery . . . for whom his heart clearly still yearns.
Sarah is simply trying to move on with her life at Fort Laramie, but doing so under the watchful eyes of both Campbell-the man whose love she craves-and Croftner-the man whose lies have cost her everything.
Will Rand fall victim to the conspiracy and go through with his wedding? Or will he declare his love for Sarah and make good on the promises that brought her into the rugged western territories?

I was somewhat disappointed in that this book was not a full length novel, but a shorter length novel. The style of writing is reflective of a different style of writing from a different writing time. I enjoyed the quickness of the story, but so many bad things happened in very rapid succession in this story. It seemed a bit forced for me. However, there was a “happily ever after” conclusion which gave me an “Awww” moment. It felt more like a good teen read, with a slight hint of some topics to discuss such as the racist attitudes at that time period towards Native Americans.
