This is my second book I have read by Regina Scott and it is also the second book in her “American Wonders Collection”. Even though this is the second book in a series, you by no means have to read the first to be able to read and enjoy this book. They are in no way dependent on each other. The first one was set in the Grand Canyon in 1871. However, this book is set in Yellowstone National Park in 1866. They are the same series because they are both set in wondrous places of the United States. As with the first book in this series, A Distance Too Grand, this book also has a strong female main character who holds her own as well as the military. Regina Scott does an excellent job of describing her characters and bringing them to life. She also does an excellent job of describing the world to which the characters live and interact. The romantic dynamic between the main female character, Kate Tremaine, and the main male character, Lieutenant William Prescott, is outstandingly good especially because she tells it from both points of view. If you like to read historical romance novels, then I would say that you would definitely enjoy this book. And if you have not read one before, then this is a good one to read for your first.
