While some people think she's nuts, Charity Sinclair knows she is right to follow her dream. After working for years in publishing, she longs for adventure. Opportunity knocks when Charity sees an ad for a 20-acre gold claim in Dead Horse Creek, Canada. Using her small inheritance, Charity buys the property and small cabin sight unseen.

Since the death of his family, former CEO McCall Hawkins has been healing in the Canadian wilderness. Call had wanted to add to his property, so he's annoyed when some woman purchases rights to the Lily Rose claim. When Call first sees Charity he is certain she won't last long. Her determination soon proves him wrong.

The magnificent and dangerous beauty of the Yukon wilderness comes alive in this adventurous tale. Kat Martin does a marvelous job building a sense of place and developing characters who really fit into the landscape. Terrific, adventurous fun. (May, 352 pp., $6.99)
