After years of isolation on top of Hope Mountain, Ilsa Nordegren may finally be ready to leave. Raised to fear the world, Ilsa and her sisters never planned on coming down, but when the Warden family arrived in need, they had to help. And it may cost them everything.

Having made his fortune, Mitch Warden returned home and found the family homestead abandoned. In a land grab, a ruthless cattle baron had forced his family to escape up the mountain, and when he follows, the last thing he expects is to fall smitten to a black-haired woman who dresses like Robin Hood.

Warden is intent on helping his family reclaim their land, but doesn't realize the risks his past has brought. Dangerous men have tracked him, and rather than risk innocent lives, he's determined to end the danger. But that means a journey to the city--and when Ilsa insists on joining him, the mismatched pair suddenly find themselves on a venture they'll never forget.

Booklist Review

The second in Connealy's Brides of Hope Mountain series, following Aiming for Love (2019), is Ilsa and Mitch's story. The Nordegren sisters--Josephine, Ilsa, and Ursula--have lived on Hope Mountain in Colorado their whole lives and were raised by their grandparents to be afraid of the larger world. When the Warden family came to the mountain, Ilsa and her sisters helped them. But now, someone has tracked Mitch Warden from New York City, where he made his fortune, all the way back to Hope Mountain. Rather than endangering his family, Mitch decides to return east to face the men trying to kill him, but before that can happen, Mitch and Ilsa are caught in a compromising situation and soon find themselves married. Heading east together, Mitch and Ilsa set out on an incredible journey to track down the threat against Mitch. Connealy infuses this story with faith, humor, and plenty of adventure. Readers who enjoy inspirational fiction with suspense and a western bent will find much to enjoy in this series.
