From USA Today, RITA-nominated author Anthea Lawson comes this full-length Victorian romantic adventure full of wit, adventure, and plenty of passion! * Now FREE for a limited time*

Miss Lily Strathmore has made a desperate bargain. One last adventure abroad with her botanist uncle and his family, and then she will do as her parents bid and wed the proper (and boring) viscount her mother has selected as Lily's ideal husband.

James Huntington is on a mission. Retrieve his grandfather's lost journals from the wilds of Tunisia, and win the estate and fortune he so desperately needs. This quest will be the making of him--or his ruin.

Thrown together on a botanical expedition, James and Lily's attraction is immediate, and impossible. Despite every reason to keep their distance, the two find themselves inexorably drawn together as they race to reach a hidden valley before their enemies can bring all their dreams crashing down.

"A lush, exotic tale of romance and adventure." - Sally MacKenzie, USA Today bestselling author

 Teton Romance Trilogy Book 1Evelyn Lewis' secret dream of marrying her brother's best friend is shattered when he leaves their home town to seek his fortune elsewhere. For six long years, she's waited and wondered if he would return. After the shocking murder of her parents, her brother is the only family she has left. Refusing to accept a betrothal to a man she doesn't love, she decides to take control of her destiny and confront her parents' killer.

Growing up, Alexander Walker has known only violence at the hands of his cruel father. After the death of his mother, he embarks on a journey into the uncharted wilderness to test his resolve as a fur trapper and mountain man. When an impulsive decision leads him back to his childhood home, he finds more than he bargained for.

Amid the rugged Teton wilderness, fate suddenly throws Alex and Evelyn together. The quiet protective boy she remembers is now as strange to her as the world she's been forced into. Wary of the hardened man he has become, Evelyn must put her trust in him in order to survive. Alex's memories of Evelyn are of a pesky little girl, but he can't deny his growing feelings for the beautiful and spirited woman she is now. His biggest obstacle in winning her heart may not be her uncertainty of him, but a fear that has haunted him all his life.
In a primitive and brutal world, can Alex and Evelyn forge a love as solid as the mountains, or will the past come back to haunt them both?

***Content Warning: This book contains mild language, mild violence, and adult situations including physical intimacy, and is intended for adult readers. Heat level 2-3 (scale 0-5) PG13
If tragedy in an epilogue after the main story has concluded disturbs or upsets you, please do not read this book!
Teton Sunrise is the first book in a trilogy of books about life as it might have been for one family in the harsh wilderness at the base of the Teton Mountains long before the area was settled. Each book is a standalone, but they also build on each other. Events and characters in one book play a role in subsequent books. 
Teton Sunrise is a complete love story for the hero and heroine in this book, although we see them again in subsequent books. While the book is a romance, it is also a wilderness action and adventure novel, and I didn't want to sugar-coat reality. The life these characters led was not easy. It was harsh, and often brutal. The events that occur in the epilogue, which involve some of the supporting characters in this book,  are necessary for the continuation of this trilogy...

 Carefree and strong-willed, Katherine Montgomery is the daughter of a successful Montana horse rancher. When a tragic accident claims her father's life, Katherine is left to deal with an overbearing mother whose agenda does not include a young daughter. Fate deals her another devastating blow, leaving her to face an uncertain future far away from everything and everyone she's loved.


Trace Hawley used to push the limits of the law, and no one was going to plan his future for him. The death of the man who always had his back leaves him to finally face responsibility. The promises he made a decade ago have shaped him into the man he is today, and will bring him face to face with the one girl from his past he always tried to avoid.

After a ten year absence, Katherine returns to the ranch she once loved to discover the shocking reason her mother summoned her home. Surprised to find Trace still at the ranch, her childhood infatuation grows into something far stronger as he challenges her to lead the life she once wanted, but seems to have forgotten. When Katherine is forced to make a choice between saving her father's dreams or following her own, Trace might be the only one who holds the key to both.

***Content Warning: Considered by most readers a "sweet" read, this book does contains some mild language, mild violence, and adult situations including physical intimacy. Heat level 2-3 on a scale of 0-5. PG/PG13
