Let me set the scene: Hattie is traveling with a family to California via wagon train. She's grown up in a local orphanage and nabbed the job of helping out with the three small Franklin children as her way to escape and get a life of her own. Billy Monroe has also been hired by to accompany the family, adding extra security and assistance for the mister. Of course, Hattie is naive and inexperienced, and Billy has been on his own for quite a while. Right when they are discovering the pleasantries of keeping company, another young man shows up and threatens to stop their romance dead in its tracks.

Hattie slid Zachary off her hip and stood him on the ground. She smoothed her skirt with dampened palms and flashed a nervous grin. “H-hello.”
