If it were easy, it wouldn't be love.

With her parents dead and her engagment in ruins, Danielle Preston decides to leave England and try to start her life over again. She sets sail for America to seek out Mr. Martin, her closest living relative who owns a ranch somewhere in Arizona. With little money and hardly a clue as to where the ranch is located, the odds aren't exactly in her favor, until a cowboy shows up who knows Mr. Martin and where to find him. But the two of them don't exactly have a promising start.

Jacob Wade has had enough unpleasant dealings with women to last him a life time. All he asks of the female race is that it stay away from him and out of his buisness. So when a demanding British girl suddenly falls into his lap, the last thing he wants to do is take her anywhere, especially on a three day journey into the heart of Arizona Territory. Experiance has taught him that women are trouble, and this littly lady is proving to be no exception.

Jake is a hardened, rugged cowboy, Danielle the educated daughter of a minister, at first glance they have absolutely nothing in common. But underneath Jake's rough exterior and Dani's prim attitude are two very broken hearts. Will the journey to the ranch be enough to break the ice, or will it take something a little more drastic?

Westbound is the 1st book in the Love Travels West series. Take a journey to Arizona during the cattle boom of the 1870s, and travel with Dani and Jake as they discover about finding love, and more importantly, about keeping it.

(this is a temporary cover with an image I randomly found on the internet, I'm working on a better cover and it will come up soon)
