Author: Jae


“Luke” Hamilton has always been sure that she’d never marry. She accepted that she would spend her life alone when she chose to live her life disguised as a man.

After working in a brothel for three years, Nora Macauley has lost all illusions about love. She no longer hopes for a man who will sweep her off her feet and take her away to begin a new, respectable life.

But now they find themselves married and on the way to Oregon in a covered wagon, with two thousand miles ahead of them.

    Snippet Review:
    So, I feel like this book was written specifically for me. Women dressed as a man? Check. Marriage of Convenience? Check. A child AND an unplanned pregnancy? Double check. Seriously, it felt like Jae took all of my favorite tropes and wrote them into an amazing 465 page story. I absolutely loved everything about this book: the plot, the characters, the writing, the length. I could not put this book down! I finished this book in 1 day, and I finished the sequel the next day (review to come). I feel like I’ve been pretty vague about everything in this review, but I really can’t help it. I loved this book so much, I don’t have the words or the time to describe all the things that make it so great!

    I typically don’t enjoy Westerns, but wow did I ever love this book. Luke and Nora are an amazing couple with an achingly slow build to their relationship. I can’t recommend this book enough.

    I have always loved historical fiction. The problem is that it’s very hard to find a good historical fiction novel in lesbian fiction. My search is over. This book, as far as I’m concerned is perfect. It has all the elements that I feel need to be in this type of book. The characters are engaging, the story line grabbed me from almost the first page, the setting is wonderful and I just loved the book! Upon completion, I had an overwhelming urge to go find my copy of the Oregon Trail game.
