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 Dannie'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 Dannie and Jake as they discover about finding love, and more importantly, about keeping it.

I enjoyed reading the bio you wrote. It sounds like you are an artist in many ways.  Never sell yourself short, it's the story that counts and I have a hunch this one will be very interesting. Thanks for sharing your work.

Okay, where's the introduction, the copyright. Please add it.
                              I want to say how much I love the cover. Is it your idea or did someone create it for you?  I had planned to write this on the intro page, but of course couldn't. I will leave another comment for the chapter after I read it. :D

This sounds great! Have you ever watched the Love Saga? It reminds me of this.
