11. "True hope is swift, and flies with swallow’s wings, she whispered, quoting Shakespeare. Kings it makes gods, and meaner creatures kings. By George! Wyoming Territory! He was here at last. It couldn’t be hard to find. Killdeer was not exactly a thriving metropolis. I apologize for not meeting the stage, but as you can see, walking is a bit difficult for me. Especially the constant on and off of the boardwalks. Don’t give it a thought. I liked getting a look at the town."

12. "I thought you should have a few days to get your bearings. You can begin work here on Monday. That’s very generous of you, sir, but I am willing to begin at once if I am needed. Roland waved away the comment. Not necessary, Mr. Ludgrove. Monday will be soon enough. Jack nodded. Though my wife is expecting you to be our guest for supper your first night in Killdeer. I wouldn’t want to put her out, Mr. Everton. Jack stood."

14. "One of her nice dresses. What her mother meant was something more fashionable. Molly favored dark skirts and simple white blouses. Clothing that was practical and allowed her to move and breathe. Ruth Everton wanted her daughter in handsome suits with gathered flounces and lots of fringe, and a corset that laced her into the perfect S shape that fashion demanded. Forget breathing altogether."

16. "Molly moved to the mirror and gazed at her reflection. Should she be congenial and welcoming at this first meeting? She had no experience with subterfuge and underhanded schemes, but that did seem as if it would be the best way to achieve her desired end. Could she fool Mr. Ludgrove into believing she was glad he had come to Wyoming? I must, she whispered. There’s no other way. She would put on this fancy gown, sweep up her hair on her head, and act the perfect and proper lady for the evening, all the while looking for where this man from Iowa might be most vulnerable, most easily driven back to whence he came."

18. "Miss Kristoffersen. He offered his elbow to her. After a slight hesitation, she slipped her hand into the crook of his arm, and the two of them walked toward the barn. Just before they reached it, guitar and fiddle, flute and banjo, drums and tambourine began to play a lively melody. Very soon, couples swirled by the open doorway, the women’s colorful skirts soaring out behind them. Colin dared to look at Felicia again and was rewarded with an enormous smile. It’s wonderful, she said, loud enough to be heard above the music. I’ve never seen anything like it. Your first barn dance? She nodded. Would you like to dance? The smile vanished, and she shook her head. It surprised him how much he wanted to change her mind. Are you sure? Color infused her cheeks. I don’t know how to dance, Mr. Murphy. Tell you what. He leaned closer so he didn’t have to raise his voice. We’ll wait until they play something a bit slower. Then I’ll teach you. Okay? For a heartbeat, he feared she would still refuse. But then she nodded, and pleasure flowed through him. Mrs. Summerville be hanged."

19. "She squeezed her eyes closed. She heard the buggy stop, heard Colin’s boots hit the ground, knew that he strode toward her side of the wagon. Felicia, where do you think you’re going? Away, she whispered. Strong hands closed around her waist, and suddenly she was airborne, lifted off the wagon seat and then set gently on the ground. Her eyes flew open. You’re not going anywhere, Miss Kristoffersen. Not until I’ve done this. His lips claimed hers in the kiss she’d longed for, even when she hadn’t known it. The kiss was gentle, yet it sent her senses reeling. She felt turned upside down and wrong side out. His arms gathered her closer, and she felt their hearts beating as one. Oh, if they could only stay like this forever."

20. "Come back, Felicia. Don’t leave Frenchman’s Bluff. Don’t leave the children. He brushed his lips against hers, and his voice lowered. Don’t leave me. You’ve taught me so much already, but I have so much more to learn. She smiled a little. What have I taught you, Mr. Murphy? More than you could imagine, my love. But it’ll take me a lifetime to find the words to tell you."
