This story takes place back when the wagon trains were coming across the to the western territories. When circumstances arise that put a young lady and 3 brothers together at the same point, they travel together.
As they travel and get to know one another one thing is becomes clear, Aaron the oldest brother and Pearl are well matched. A firm hand yet loving guidance and they are a match made to withstand the rough life.
This is a story that moves slowly yet keeps the interest of the reader with all of the things going on at the same time. There a mild BDSM theme, and some violence but it all flows with the story line. I liked the way the characters are so real and get to know each other throughout the story. Overall a good strong story.
