Running from hostile Indians attacking Salina, Kansas in 1862,
feisty Kizzie Atwell, Grandma Mary’s oldest grandchild, runs into freighter
Leander Jones traveling the Smoky Hill Trail. He is as interested in her as his
stallion is in her mare. The two join forces to prevent the Fort Riley Army
captain from requisitioning their beloved horses for the cavalry. Avoiding
bushwhackers and fighting off a thieving bullwhacker binds their bargain.
 
In 1865, at the victory dance held at Fort Riley to celebrate
the end of the Civil War, Kizzie is asked to participate in a fund-raiser to
aid the Sanitary Commission helping injured and sick soldiers. It involves
chaste sweetheart kisses in exchange for tickets purchased by officers and
guests. As a contract freighter for the Army, Leander is invited. Much to
Leander’s chagrin, before his chance to claim his kiss, Kizzie’s uncle steps in
and puts an end to the kissing game.
 
 
Is Leander out of luck, or will the bargain Kizzie and Leander
made three years earlier to save their horses lead to a more romantic bargain
sealed with a kiss?

Snippet #1
          Kizzie could tell
packing the wagon had used up what little reserve of energy Mima had still
possessed. She had watched as her mother had crawled into her wagon box next to
Meredith and, with a sigh, had leaned back against a stack of bedding. Jessie
had climbed into the seat to drive the wagon, settling the shotgun at his feet.
          Kizzie gritted
her teeth as she recalled how he had barked an order at her just as she had
finished handing the jug with the willow bark tea to Grandpa. “Kizzie, make
sure the barn and corral are clear then catch up and get in the wagon. We’re
leaving now.”
 
          Jesse was her
younger brother. Who was he to give her orders?
