Whom could you trust if you were stranded fifteen hundred miles from home?
 
Misfortune has plagued Juno Brock for months. Recently widowed, a chance encounter with a dangerous criminal in St. Louis exposes her to information that can see her branded. Or worse, hanged. When a pirate attack on the Mississippi River maroons her in the wilds of Michigan Territory, she has but one choice: use her wits to secure passage on a boat traveling downriver and reunite with her family fifteen hundred miles away.
 
An arrogant mistake in his youth has set flatboat pilot Malcolm Moreau on a forked path of redemption and revenge. His successful livelihood transporting goods to New Orleans revolves around cargo, not passengers, but Juno’s recent encounter with his longtime enemy makes her the exception. A bargain is struck: safe passage to Natchez, Mississippi, in exchange for the information she unwittingly discovered.
 
What follows is a month-long journey where mistrust and resentment unfolds into an unexpected friendship filled with secret confidences and before long, attraction. Sometimes dangerous, often humorous, their voyage down America’s most infamous river and the outlandish characters they meet along the way will ultimately inspire a destination neither expected: love.

About the author

Marti lives in central Illinois surrounded by cornfields and wind turbines. After spending nearly twenty years banging her head against a wall trying to get her books traditionally published, she came to her senses at long last and self-published her first historical romance novel Clingstone in 2016. Clingstone went on to win the historical category in the 2017 I Heart Indie Contest. The goose egg on her forehead has diminished greatly since.

Marti loves hearing from her readers and invites you to visit her website martiziegler.com
