    When their forbidden attraction turns to love, what will happen at the end of the trail?

    Jake Owens is tired of life on his parents’ Montana ranch, catering to city folk who want a taste of old-fashioned country living. He enjoys life in the fast lane, with fast cars and even faster women. When he falls in with the wrong crowd and is accused of murder, a stranger’s bizarre offer at a second chance might be his only hope to clear his name.

    Rachel Parker is highly devoted to her family. A tragedy prompts a daring move to the Oregon Territory for a fresh start in a new land. After meeting the wagon train’s scout, the meaning of a fresh start may be more than she ever imagined.

    Jake can’t believe he’s been sent back in time to act as scout for a wagon train headed for Oregon, and given the added burden of keeping one emigrant woman safe during the journey.

    He and Rachel are confused by their attraction to each other. Jake’s ill-mannered, unconventional ways are overshadowed only by his notorious reputation. Rachel’s traditional values and quiet, responsible character are the complete opposite of what attracts Jake to a woman.

    Come Home to Me was my first ever audio book. (And I’ve realized that this is my first ever review) I wasn’t sure if I would like audios or not. Cody did such an amazing job at sucking me into the story that I am completely hooked now.

    I have read most of Peggy’s novels and I have fallen in love with each character. I’ve never been a big fan of Time Travel Travel romances but Peggy has been able to pull you in to the time and place that she has so beautifully written about.

    I’ve never been anywhere west of Louisiana and growing up on the east coast you don’t to experience the things you do west of here.

    Peggy was able to make me feel as if I have been everywhere that she has written about and I look forward to reading/listening to more of her work.

    Review by Carolyn:

    I just love a sexy handsome cowboy whose bad boy ways have been transformed by the love of a good woman then couple that with time travel and an impossible ending and I’m hooked until the last word.

 Jake’s womanising has led him down the wrong path and he’s now in jail for murder but an unknown visitor makes him an offer that’s just too good to be true and the next morning Jake wakes up in a horse stall confused, wearing leather britches, moccasins and a knife, tomahawk and a Colt strapped on him.

    He soon finds out he’s got a new job as a Scout for a Wagon Train bound for Oregon but….. it’s 150 years in the past.

As soon as he sets eyes on Rachel he was smitten but she was on the journey with her drunk deadbeat husband and 3 small children but he tried hard to fight the pull of attraction and desire. The adventure was to last 5 months and in that time there were hardships, arguments, surprises, sickness, death, twists, false accusations, Indians but through it all was his longing for Rachel and hers for Jake.

    This is such a well written action packed enjoyable story that sucks you in and you too feel the heartbreak, passion, turmoil and drama along with the characters and are able to visualise the campfires, characters, trails, wagons and hardships these brave pioneers of the Old West had to endure for the hope of a better life. And, despite everything, that’s exactly what Jake tasted, a better way of life, with the love of a good woman.

    But, at the end of the trail someone is waiting for him in Oregon with devastating news and the romance that was hard won was easily lost overnight. Lots of looking, longing, brief touches and the sex was only really hinted at but what an emotional journey and
