Newly married and widowed, Courtney Burgess moves to New Mexico territory from her posh home in New York to marry the man she loves. Unfortunately, this man turns out to be someone completely different than who she thought. Now, too humiliated to return to her father in New York, she attempts to make a success of the failing sheep ranch left to her by her husband.

Beau Hamilton, the rugged, yet handsome native of Santa Fe has a varied career of what he will do to make money. This time he has been hired by a wealthy man from New York to keep an eye on his daughter and the despicable man she is marrying. Beau isn’t crazy about the job, but once he sees the beautiful Mrs. Burgess, it is quite a bit easier.

Beau and Courtney experience an immediate mistrust as well as attraction towards one another. The new Mrs. Burgess finds herself in danger from the owner of the neighboring ranch, who wants her land and pulls out all the stops to acquire it. Beau and Courtney fight the love they feel for each other, but when Courtney discovers the huge secret he is hiding from her, will it cost him her love?

Rebel Heart is an entertaining escapade set in the Wild West. The characters, both good and bad, are completely convincing. The banter between the hero and heroine was delightful and imaginative of what the old west must have really been like. Ms. Corti-Peska’s novel was a pure joy to read.
