I thought I would post a snippet from my Western historical novella The Cowboy And The Quaker.
Boston – 1870’s
He shouldn’t be here, not with his wedding a few days away, but before he left he wanted another taste of Rachael, his little Quaker whore. Once he returned from his honeymoon he had every intention of resuming their affair. Giving Rachael an engagement ring was a master stroke, lulled her into thinking they had a future together. His lips curled with derision, as if a man of his background would ever marry a lowly school teacher. If he was discreet he would get away with this dalliance for as long as he wanted. Discretion had got him to the position he was in today, and he intended to make it stay that way.
He removed his soft kid gloves and knocked on the door of the two roomed cottage, a hundred yards or so away from the school house. It stood on the edge of town, convenient for his clandestine, nocturnal visits.
The door swung open and there she stood, blonde hair tied back with a blue ribbon that matched her high collared demure gown. Once a Quaker always a Quaker. Her background made her all the more desirable. The allure of forbidden fruit had always appealed to him.

Orphaned as a child, feisty Colleen O’Mara is discovered by the Cherokee people and adopted as one of their own. She becomes a sister to the chief’s only daughter. Learning their ways, she teaches them her language in return. As the United States Army uproots them from their homes, she is fascinated with the dark-haired lieutenant that has come to her rescue as they are forced to make the treacherous journey to the Oklahoma Territory.
Lieutenant Daniel Williams is among the soldiers called up to enforce the removal of the Cherokee people from Georgia. It only took one glance into Colleen’s pale green eyes amidst the chaos to become fascinated with the so-called Indian maiden. Feeling guilty over what is happening to the Cherokee and his love for the enchanting young woman, he abandons everything he had once known in order to make things right for his perfect bride.

5 star Amazon Reviews:
I truly enjoyed this story! Very sad about all the Cherokee had to go through but a triumph regarding Colleen O’Mara, the character in the story. She loses her family and gets adopted by the Cherokee and ends up going on the Trail of Tears. Such a sad part of American history. She gets befriended by an American army officer and what happens from there is lovely. I would recommend this book, especially to learn something about this part of our history.
This was an incredible story with history in it. A young girl orphaned at a young age befriended by the Indians. Then the Army comes and makes them leave and they have to proceed on the Trail of Tears. So many died and were killed on this walk. The story has a lot of twists and turns in it. The story can make you smile, laugh, cry and be happy.
