We begin our tale with a fellow named Kurt Richards, modern man, who just ended another relationship. Or rather, SHE ended the relationship. He has had a string of bad luck in love, mainly because he is devoted to protecting the historical ruins of Anasazi at Black Mesa, Montana. While on a stake-out to catch looters, he finds himself swept off a cliff into another time.
He wakes up in the year 1890 and finds himself without a place to stay and nothing to eat until a widow takes him in as her hired ranch hand. He discovers he is very much attracted to the lovely, dark Olivia. But then, so is the neighbor, Sam Evans. And Sam is not too friendly with Kurt.
Olivia struggles to maintain the ranch and it's surrounding property left to her by her late husband, Harvey. Considered useless land for farming or grazing, she finds herself unable to pay the upcoming mortgage payment to the smirking bank manager, Sloan Durrant. And really strange yet, he wants to buy some of the so-called useless land up on Black Mesa! Something is up, and Kurt knows what it is. Durrant is after the legend of a treasure, but won't ever find it if Kurt and Sam have any say.
The characters are written with the characteristic warmth of Sherry Lewis, and the setting description is satisfying. This is a story that doesn't forget the plot for just romance. Enjoy!
