Steeple Hill Books Counterfeit Cowboy

From the moment Jesse Baker collides with Erin O'Grady on a Boston train platform, he faces a dilemma. For once, Jesse doesn't want to lie about who and what he is. Yet if she learns he's a con artist, not a cowbot-and the urchin with him is certainly not his brother-she'll never give him a chance.

Erin suspects there's more to the enigmatic cowboy than meets the eye. But the sheltered socialite is certain his deep compassion is real. On the long Christmastime train ride to Wyoming, hearts and courage are tested and true motives revealed. And the journey that began in a charade may end with redemption-and a very real love.

From the time his stepfather kicked him out of the house, Jesse Baker survived using his wits. Trained to be a confidence man by an older lad, Jesse managed to avoid the law until a scam earned him five years in prison. Now released he’s on a quest to take care of a promise he made to a cell mate.
I really sympathized with Jesse’s dilemma. No matter how much he wants to go straight, his cross-country train journey will test his resolve. First there’s beautiful Erin O’Grady, an easy mark who has no idea how vulnerable she is. Then there’s Pete, the street urchin who sees through Jesse’s cowboy disguise and blackmails him into pretending to be his older brother. With every mile, his lies stack higher and higher.
I truly enjoyed this winsome story full of strong characters on an exciting trip across 1890 America.
