He’s not who she thinks he is. But he might be the hero she needs.

As the town is threatened by a past enemy, Hank might just be the hero they all need. Can he help without revealing who he is? And will Amelia love him when she learns the truth?
In 1882, at the end of the Oregon Trail, Amelia Martin—a soon-to-be schoolteacher with a vivid imagination, a gift for making things grow, and an obsession with dime novels—has arrived with her doctor father on the frontier after the death of her mother. She longs for the adventure she finds in her novels and to prove to her father that she is capable and stronger than he thinks. But after a robbery on the stagecoach ride, her ideas about adventure might not hold up to reality.
Hank Paulson tries being a hero and protecting Amelia during the robbery, only to make things worse. Which is just as well since he’s hiding his true identity as the heir to a wealthy banking family by posing as a lumberjack. The clock is ticking to carve out his own success or return to the life his family has destined for him.
Amelia believes her very own dashing hero has come to her rescue, clumsy as it was. When he returns her book dropped in the robbery, she is confused. The dashing man is now dressed as a common logger, nothing like the dime-novel hero she had met before.
Hank is enchanted by Amelia, but his interest isn’t returned. If he reveals who he really is, she might be more inclined to his attentions. But he wants to be loved for who he is, not who someone wants him to be.
Now the town is in trouble, and Hank is the only one who can help. Amelia learns that all heroes aren’t in the pages of a book. As the town is threatened by a past enemy, Hank might just be the hero they all need.
Can he help without revealing who he is? And will Amelia love him when she learns the truth? Will Amalia love life on the frontier and prove to be stronger than any dime-novel heroine?
