A headstrong young woman seeks her destiny on the American frontier-and soon discovers that the man she swore she would never love is the man she needs. Beautiful Emmalee Alden escapes an orphanage when a black-eyed rogue spirits her aboard a Missouri-bound riverboat. Blind to Garn Landar's true nature and fearing for her life, Emmalee makes a fateful choice-she sells herself into servitude to a wagon train heading West. Obsessed with attaining independence and swept-up in the fever of land rush, she realizes too late that claiming land is only half the battle. There is farming, ranching, bone-deep toil, and constant vigilance against those who would seek to dispossess her. When Garn reappears in Emmalee's life, she needs his help more than ever-but can she trust him? A spirited tale of romance, adventure, and the eternal mysteries of the human heart, The Passionate and the Proud brings two unforgettable characters together at a pivotal moment in American history.
