Can two wounded hearts find a way to trust again?
Julia Grace has no desire to enter into another marriage. But with her dead husband's half brother threatening to take away her Wyoming ranch, Julia realizes marriage may be the only way to keep what is rightfully hers.
A man well acquainted with betrayal, drifter Hugh Brennan finds himself drawn to the attractive widow. Yet when he looks into Julia's eyes, he recognizes the same hurt that haunts him.
A thoughtful romance from the turn of the twentieth century, Betrayal will take you to the high desert of western Wyoming, through the crags of the Rocky Mountains, and into the souls of two seekers learning to trust God's love no matter the circumstances.

My thanks to my public library for keeping me in retro reads like this!
Yes -- my second Robin Lee Hatcher book this week! Between trying to keep current with her new releases and catch up on her backlist, well, I'll be a busy reader for some time to come! And enjoy every moment of it too!
This is book two in Where the Heart Lives series. I read and reviewed the third book a few weeks ago and had no trouble working backwards as each book reads as a standalone though I love the thread that links these stories together -- siblings separated on the orphan train.
"Wounded hearts" is an apt description for this hero and heroine. Both have tasted the bitterness of betrayal and, as a result, have become wary loners. But they need each other now -- maybe Julia more than Hugh at first. Because a woman trying to run a ranch -- even a small one -- on her own is asking for trouble! And Hatcher happily supplies that in abundance. Like any good Western, Betrayal has a nefarious villain who causes no end of problems and I found myself gritting my teeth as I anticipated what would happen next. Oh -- and there's a spectacular dog -- appropriately named Bandit and he made this read all the sweeter. :-)
Another captivating love story with lots of grit and faith from an incredible author.
