'Ring is a straight-laced Captain in the army and Maddie is what seems to be a refined Opera singer but underneath grew up a adventurous mountain girl with famous explorers for parents. Maddie will do whatever it takes to get her little sister Laurel back from kidnappers and 'Ring who is in the dark about the kidnapping tries to make Maddie leave the gold camps and go home. Along the way they have adventures and fights and fall in love. A very compelling read. Truly enjoyable. ( )

I listened to this book on Audio CD. What could have been a good story line turned out to lack substance and was just another romance novel. ( )

I sort of liked this book, but honestly I just never ... got it. The story felt very convoluted, leaving me with a bunch of, "Huh? Okay, why?" It would have been nice to take these fairly likable characters and transplant them into a better story. ( )

I don't even remember anything about this, other than that it was disappointing even by romance book expectations. ( )

Book description
Captain Ring Montgomery was handsome, a skilled rider, a crack shot, popular with the men and their ladies. That was reason enough for a jealous, surly colonel to saddle Montgomery with a most peculiar assignment: to escort an opera singer into the Colorado gold fields. Ring's plan was to scare the little lady enough so that she'd hightail it for home. After all, a Civil War was brewing! But LaReina, The Singing Duchess -- as Maddie Worth called herself on stage -- didn't scare easy. And she didn't intend to explain her reasons for coming West to any high and mighty soldier. Captain Montgomery might be smart enough to figure out that she was no European duchess, and gentleman enough not to take advantage of her when he'd had the chance, but he'd have to go on thinking she had some insane desire to sing opera to a bunch of ragtag miners. She didn't dare trust him with the truth...
