Daughter of a wealthy Eastern family, Maggie Dumont marries the man she believes she loves and follows him West, hoping to find their fortune in the California gold fields. Though she appears brave, Maggie is frightened of the upcoming journey and unsure of her new husband.

Maggie and the rest of the wagon train travelers face storms, disease, Indians, death and every imaginable hardship as they make their way across the great plains. Only one man is capable of leading them out of disaster: wagon train scout Rafe Morrisey.

Rafe earns Maggie's respect and then her love as he awakens her to feelings, passions and desires she never knew were hiding within her soul. Rafe sees in Maggie the woman who is his kindred spirit.

Torn between her loyalty to her husband and her great love for Rafe, Maggie arrives in California determined to build a new life. But more trauma awaits as she is left with "friends" and her husband leaves for the fields. Only Rafe can help her triumph and find a great new world.

Part saga, part wagon train adventure and all romance, LOVE ME TOMORROW is as powerful and exciting as all Ms. Bittner's western romances. Readers can immerse themselves in one of the most realistic wagon train journeys written in recent years as well as a "torn between two lovers" tale that stirs the heart. SENSUAL (Jan., 380 pp., $5.99)
