The Lady of Bolton Hill by Elizabeth Camden
What It's About:
Clara Endicott is beginning to make a name for herself as a journalist who is intent on exposing the dark side of industry. In the splendor of gilded age America, she soon finds herself face to face with the childhood sweetheart who is no longer the impoverished steel worker she once knew.
Daniel Tremain has risen to become a powerful industry giant. He had always idolized Clara, but when she writes an exposé about his company, it will trigger a series of events that threatens to destroy the only woman Daniel has ever loved.
I really enjoyed the mix of characters in this book; even the would-be villain was interesting with his unique and tragic past. I liked that the hero and heroine were good friends years before and that spark of attraction hadn't dimmed. Though I knew how the story was going to end, being a romance, I still found myself thinking that Clara and Daniel couldn't ever be together - there was just too much for them to overcome. Which, of course, kept me reading to see how they'd triumph!

No one would ever imagine a fresh-faced young woman could be robbing stage bandits of their ill-gotten fortunes. But Jennie Jones is desperate to save her family's ranch from foreclosure. And the risks seem worth it, until her upright new ranch hand offers a glimpse of how much is really at stake.
Former bounty hunter Caleb Johnson is ready for a new, clean start. With a woman like Jennie, he could build a future there in Utah territory. But only if his gentle faith can guide her in a choice between the land she's fought so hard to save and a future by his side.
