Captain Sam Wyllie lost too much in the Revolutionary War, and he's determined to safeguard his heart. When he meets widowed Catherine Adams, Sam commits himself to protecting her from the dangers of frontier life, but can he protect himself from the dangers of love?
This heart-wrenching historical romance blends high action, heroism, and humor with a love and passion as powerful and beautiful as the wilderness. Unblinkingly gritty, Dorothy Wiley's NEW FRONTIER OF LOVE is a memorable, pulse-pounding western adventure set in 1797 on America's romantic frontier.
The Revolutionary War left Captain Sam Wyllie battle-hardened. His courageous but cold heart defies danger--and love. Along with his four brothers, he is determined to make a fresh start in the far west, the new state of Kentucky.
Newly widowed, Catherine Adams knows she should return to her wealthy father in Boston but fears he will once again force her to marry for prestige and wealth, not love. Drawn to Sam's keen intelligence, harsh masculinity, and rugged warrior facade, she decides the west holds a chance for real love.
But dark forces--a ruthless enemy and a secret sorrow from Sam's past--conspire against them. Harboring her own secrets, Catherine resolves to help this brave buckskin-clad warrior lay down his heart's armor. Despite the undeniable attraction between them, Sam refuses to risk his heart again. Catherine won't give up, believing he could be as passionate about love as he is about his country and family.
