Praise for Bound for Eden
"A delightful, roller-coaster ride complete with its laugh-out-loud take on mistaken identity. Three siblings on the run, ruthless bad guys, quirky characters, nail-biting tension and steamy sensuality add up to a non-stop read that will make you smile and perhaps she a tear. Western aficionados will welcome a refreshing new voice in the sub-genre."--RT Book Review
"I adored Tess LeSue's Bound for Eden
! Her voice is brilliant, funny, and immediately draws you into the book. She does a fantastic job of painting the Old West and the Oregon Trail, and I was immediately reminded of curling up under the blankets with a wonderful, 'old school' historical romance. The hero is sexy and protective, the heroine is fierce and independent, and I couldn't stop turning pages." -Jessica Clare, New York Times
"I was blown away by the sparkling brilliance of [Tess's] writing. She has a real gift for historical atmosphere, compelling characters, sexual tension and witty dialogue."--Anna Campbell
"[Tess's] writing is lively and taut and generates emotion. Her characters spring to life and her stories move at a fast pace."--Anne Gracie
"Bound for Eden is a non-stop romp through the Wild West with twists and turns in every chapter. LeSue's characters leap off the page with heart and menace. An accomplished mix of comedy and suspense, I found myself cheering with the heroine as she boldly navigates the journey to Oregon and eventually, her freedom. I absolutely loved it."--Victoria Purman
"Tess LeSue has written a great Western romance with all the sass, fun, and riveting action a reader could want. This novel is a rollicking ride with more twists and turns than a bronco with a burr under his saddle. Funny, lovable characters, a hero who has a lot to learn, and a heroine with the wit to 'learn him'! You can't finish Bound for Eden
without a smile on your face."--May McGoldrick, USA Today
A rollicking, funny historical romance of mistaken identity, wagon trains and an irresistible attraction
Alexandra Barratt has found the perfect man – it's a shame he thinks she's a boy.

At first, Alex can't believe the way every woman in town falls at Luke's feet, including her suddenly flirtatious sister. But when she sees him naked in the bathtub, she finds herself swooning over him too. If only she could wash the muck off her face and show him who she really is…
As for Luke, he has no idea that the ragtag boy in his care is none other than the woman of his dreams. But when circumstances connive to throw Luke and Alex into each other's arms, their relationship becomes very complicated indeed. In fact, with the brutal Silas Grady in pursuit, keeping their secret becomes a matter of life and death…
