Meg Pero has been assisting her photographer father since she was big enough to carry his equipment, so when he dies she is determined to take over his profession–starting with fulfilling the contract he signed to serve on an Army survey of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in 1871. What she doesn’t realize is that the leader of the expedition is none other than the man she once refused to marry.
Captain Ben Coleridge would like nothing more than to leave without the woman who broke his heart. He can’t afford to be distracted during this survey, which is a screen for another, more personal mission, one he cannot share with any member of his team.
As dangers arise from all sides–and even from within–Meg and Ben must work together to stay alive, fulfill their duties, and, just maybe, rekindle a love that neither had completely left behind.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
This is the beginning to a new series that holds so much promise. I absolutely couldn’t put the book down. I love the whole package, from a beautiful softcover to a strong female author’s voice. Lots to cover in the beginning of a series, setting up plots, introducing characters, setting development, era information, goals, tension, sub-plots… lots! Scott does this beautifully. She misses nothing and brings the characters out perfectly setting the stage to loads of tension, drama, adventure, mystery, intrigue and romance. Her period research, knowledge and writing ability shines brilliantly. I love her style of writing and can’t wait for the next book to come out.
