A Promised Heart

(The first book in the Kansas Crossroads series)
A novel by

A runaway fiance finds refuge in a new life - and name - at the Brody Hotel. An honorable hero lands there too, after a discouraging quest to find his intended. Though providence has brought them together, will secrets and lies drive them apart?

Hattie Montgomery has never liked the idea of her betrothal, and after her chaperone (and aunt) dies suddenly on the train, Hattie finds herself taking charge for the first time. Determined to forge her own path, she abandons her life and family in Philadelphia in answer to a newspaper ad. In doing so, Hattie takes on a new name and new responsibilities - that of hotel maid and waitress. When her betrothed shows up looking for her, Hattie cannot help wondering what he's like. Curiosity leads to admiration, which quickly develops into something much more. But will telling Mr. Ellison the truth ruin their chances of a happily ever after?

Charlie Ellison packed up the moment he heard his betrothed was missing. Feeling bound by honor and duty, he begins combing the country for Miss Montgomery. But after months of dead ends, Charlie leaves his search to fate - or providence - and hops on a random train, which drops him in Topeka, Kansas. There, he finds the charming Miss Carlson. Conflicted, Charlie must choose between honor and love. But how can he give away his heart when it was promised long ago?
