When her father succumbs to a long illness, Sarah Montgomery is freed from duty to family. At last she can be with the love of her life, Rand Campbell, who has gone out west to Fort Laramie, Wyoming. Sarah and her younger brother Joel make the arduous journey filled with hope.
But at Fort Laramie, the reception Sarah meets isn’t what she had hoped for. Her friend Amelia is thrilled to have her, but Rand seems to be in the clutches of Jessica DuBois, the scheming daughter of the post commander.
Sarah resolves to remain at Fort Laramie and try to win Rand back. But things will get tougher before they get easier . . . especially when her ex-fiancé Ben Croftner arrives in Wyoming, obsessed with having her back in his arms.

In book 2 of Colleen Coble’s Journey of The Heart series, A Heart’s Obsession, Sarah Montgomery and Rand Campbell struggle with changing allegiances and love lost. (You can read my review of book 1, A Heart’s Disguise HERE.) As the action shifts from Wabash, Indiana to Fort Laramie, Wyoming deep in the heart of Indian country, the action heats up. Life in the west is just different — white women are in short supply and Indian brides are common and prejudices are rampant. This 98 page novella advances the plot quickly and characters are not as well-developed as in full-length novels, but Coble does not stint on historical details or on romance. A Heart’s Obsession was just the read I needed. Lucky for me though, I have book 3 on hand as book 2 leaves Sarah longing for a lost love and Rand set on sticking to his promises. Another great choice for fans of Coble’s historical romances.
Audience: older teens and adults.
