Author: Dorothy Wiley
Genre: Historical Romance
2017 RONE AWARD FINALIST!
An entrancing historical romance set in 1800 Philadelphia and Kentucky! When Daniel discovers the truth of his parentage, he abandons Philadelphia for the frontier. But will the search for his biological father get in the way of his budding love for beautiful Ann?
Philadelphia cowers before a mysterious killer--Yellow Fever. Daniel Armitage and his family are respected members of Philadelphia society. But their status cannot save Daniel's loved ones. His entire family succumbs to the horrifying disease. His mother's startling deathbed confession shakes Daniel to his soul. Another man is really his father. His search for his real father takes him to Kentucky--the edge of the western frontier. Seeking a father with a different last name, he is now considered an illegitimate bastard and is scorned by everyone, even himself. Except for the people who matter the most--his true father Daniel "Bear" MacKay and Ann Byrd.
Captivated by her beauty and fierce independence, Daniel seeks to court Ann but her father won't allow her near a man born out of wedlock. The humiliation of illegitimacy subjects Daniel to social and legal discrimination. And ruthless, back-stabbing Charles Snyder is obsessed with having Ann for himself. Snyder terrorizes Daniel's new family and the entire town. Bear's act of unequivocal love grants Daniel a chance for happiness. But only Ann's courage can save it.
Loss took everything from Daniel. Can love give him even more?
