Despite rumors of “strange doings” at a cabin in Fredericksburg, investigative reporter Dessa Wade books the cottage from which lawyer Charity Dawson disappeared in 2008. Dessa is intent on solving the mystery. Instead, caught in the swirling mist that surrounds the cabin, she finds herself in 1890, in a shootout between the Faraday Gang and a US Marshal.
Marshal Cole Jeffers doesn’t believe Miss Wade is a time traveler. He admits she’s innocent of being an outlaw but thinks she knows more about the gang than she’s telling. When she’s kidnapped by Zeke Faraday, Cole is determined to rescue her. He’s longed for a woman of his own, and Dessa Wade just might be the one—if she’ll commit to the past.

My Thoughts
They don’t make men like they used. Luckily for Dessa she has a chance at one of the Wild West’s hunkiest marshals. Now all she has to do is stay alive.

This is a beautiful story about a woman named Dessa Wade investigating the disappearance of Charity Dawson. After renting a the mysterious cottage where Charity disappeared Dessa is thrust over a hundred years in the past to 1890 where she will not only find Charity, but possibly her true love.

Dessa Wade is definitely not some wilting violet and she doesn’t let anyone especially not some hundred year old marshal who tells her what to do. 

Marshal Cole Jeffers is somewhat of a typical thought hunky, 19th century man who is used to more delicate and feminine women. Dessa wade is a strange, but wonderful surprise. He has always wanted a woman of his own and after meeting Dessa thinks she might be the one. In order for their happily ever after to happen he must not only keep her from getting killed, but convince her to stay in the past. Their relationship was really sweet and they definitely had chemistry. I think these two characters balanced each other out perfectly.  The book had a really good flow to it and the scenes wove together very nicely.
