Rab Trudeau is a man of honor, a Civil War veteran and wealthy entrepeneur living in San Francisco when he discovers that something is amiss with his mining business down in Nevada. Determined to get to the bottom of the problem himself, he travels to Virginia City and poses as a detective. This trip also gives him a much needed break from a fiance who has pushed him relentlessly into a marriage he isn't even sure he wants. Not long after he arrives it becomes apparent that someone wants him dead and when a beautiful young woman whom he rescued from a run away wagon asks him for an interview, he decides to accept for more reasons than one.
Susanna Ward Kirkland is a beautiful woman who has taken the name of the family that raised her from the age of 5 when she became an orphan on their wagon train and who is now working for one of the local newspapers. When handsome Rab Trudeau rescues her from certain injury, she finds herself wildly attracted to him and when the opportunity arises for her to interview him, she finds that not only does her fascination with this stranger increase, but he seems to be equally enamored with her. After a trip with Rab down into one of the mines, Susanna experiences one of the first true moments of passion in her life and as both she and Rab continue to seek out the truth about the deceptions surrounding the mines, their feelings grow even stronger. But Susanna has promised herself to the son of the people who raised her and Rab is still engaged to his fiance back in San Francisco so both struggle with balancing their feelings of affection with the demands of honor and with a murderer on Rab's heels, nothing is easy.
Susanna's Choice is a good old fashioned western romance with all the normal trappings a story like this brings... excitement, danger, tender feelings, sex and the eternal struggle between love and honor. A colorful cast of secondary characters helps add to the story. A satisfying read with a hero and heroine you can feel for and the kind of happy ending that every romance deserves.
