Cassie fought renegade Apache, a scalding desert and a team of stubborn mules, but it only took one handsome Frenchman to make her cry.
Light, clean, and action-packed.
Cassie isn’t impressed by the handsome young Frenchman who joined their freight team – not much, anyway. He’s far too arrogant for her taste – at first, anyway. Cassie doesn’t trust men, but for some reason, she is attracted to Chauncey. He has a familiar look about him.
Cassie resists his offer of friendship, but she is intrigued by his knowledge and sense of humor. She has learned to keep up with the men in the freighting outfit, but Chauncey keeps besting her. Finally, he gains her trust – and then loses it. Can they regain what they had, or is she doomed to lose everything?

"Cassie" is a breathless adventure. Set in the White Sands of New Mexico in the 1800's, this novella is sprinkled with humor and suspense. Cassie and Chauncey race through courtship amid scorpions, sand, burning sun and Indian raids. Trust, or the absence of it, is the base for this story. Cassie has been burned deeply by her father's infidelity. Chauncey gives her many reasons to trust him…and one big reason not to.
A believable story with realistic characters, told with the usual style of Linda Louise Rigsbee.
When her father abandoned his family and her mother died of grief, Cassie had to grow up fast. Their Texas ranch still had a mortgage, so she took a job with a freighting company and left her two younger siblings with a friend.
She learned to tolerate the desert heat, manage a team of mules and ignore whispers behind feminine hands. She conquered her fear of the wild country and animals. With the aid of a bull whip, she staved off any overzealous male admirers. The one thing she couldn't conquer was her distrust of men.
Then a band of renegade Apache chased a handsome Frenchman into her life and heart. He won her guarded trust when he saved her life. She was ready to say yes to his proposal of marriage...until she caught him with another woman. Could she shut him out of her life? Should she?
