A Con Man with a Conscience... 

From the moment Jesse Baker collides with Erin O'Grady on a Boston train platform, he faces a dilemma. For once, Jesse doesn't want to lie about who and what he is. Yet if she learns he's a con artist, not a cowboy-and the urchin with him is certainly not his brother-she'll never give him a chance. 

Erin suspects there's more to the enigmatic cowboy than meets the eye. But the sheltered socialite is certain his deep compassion is real. On the long Christmastime train ride to Wyoming, hearts and courage are tested and true motives revealed. And the journey that began in a charade may end with redemption-and a very real love.

Review:

"A semireformed con man and a generous socialite meet in 1890 America and change each other's lives in this good-hearted romance. Erin O'Grady is fed up after her father thwarts her plans to volunteer at a children's hospital by bribing a man to become her suitor. To assert her independence, she decides to leave Boston and spend Christmas visiting her brother's family in Wyoming. Would-be reformed criminal Jesse Baker wants to turn a new leaf, but is also desperate for money to carry out the last wishes of his former cellmate, who died saving his life. After helping Erin catch her departing train, he's torn between exploiting the young woman's naïveté and giving in to her caring nature, which is bolstered by her strong Christian beliefs. Williams (Homesteader's Sweetheart) conveys class divisions without derailing a story that's as much about faith as love, resulting in another gentle, family-friendly success.
