Emily Highfill Grant is living the life most young women would envy: fashionable picnics on Boston Common, parties with eligible bachelors, and the wealth of her grandfather Charles Bertram Highfill assuring her a fine marriage. But what Emily wants more than anything is to go West—and break free of the cage her name and fortune have built for her. When her mother decides to travel to San Francisco, Emily sneaks aboard their private railcar, planning to surprise her once they’ve left the station. But Emily is the one who’s surprised: the railcar has been leased to Lucien Delatour, and she’s now traveling cross-country in a cozy private car with a handsome stranger.
Lucien Delatour hasn’t had it easy. Raised in an orphanage, Lucien built his hard-won fortune with sweat and determination. Now a saboteur’s deadly actions threaten to destroy the rail line that he and his business partner have spent a fortune to create. Racing west, Lucien is determined to prove that the saboteur is his old nemesis—Charles Bertram Highfill.
When Emily’s family sends agents to retrieve her, Lucien marries her to keep her safe. But when he finds out who her grandfather is, Lucien can’t help but feel betrayed…and soon he is torn between saving his railroad and saving his marriage.
