This is book number 7 in the Mountain series.
He's been sent to retrieve the new missionary...but she's not at all who he expected to find.
Joseph Malcom has spent his life protecting those in need, but now that his sister is safely settled with her new family in the Canadian Rockies, his help is no longer required. That is, until he's asked to safely retrieve the priest's cousin to help minister to the local Indian tribe. But his passenger is not at all who he expects.
After the death of her mother, Monti Bergeron has nothing to keep her in Montreal. While the prospect of ministering to the Indians out west is daunting, she looks forward to assisting her beloved cousin in his mission work. But the man who's been sent to guide her through the mountains might make her second-guess her plans before she even begins.
As Monti settles into her ministry, Joseph finds his wandering feet drawn back to the Indian camp. Monti's focus on God is more unsettling than he'd like to admit. Her beauty tests his willpower at every turn, but she's made it crystal clear she doesn't want a husband. When danger strikes and Monti's life is at risk, protecting her requires something Joseph just might not be able to give.
