Emmie finds shelter in the arms of a soldier, but her secret could drive them apart.
When Emmie Croftner answered the door to her late husband’s home, she discovered a terrible truth. A woman she’s never met reveals that she and Emmie shared the same husband and that the bigamist had never divorced his first wife. The home and farm are not Emmie’s property after all.
Suddenly displaced and powerless, Emmie realizes she can’t stay in Wabash, Indiana, any longer. She makes for Fort Laramie, Wyoming, where her friend Sarah Montgomery and a new beginning await her. But when she arrives, she discovers she’s carrying a child, conceived before her husband’s death. Was the new start she’d hoped for only a mirage?
At Fort Laramie, a soldier named Isaac Liddle begins to court Emmie, prompting her to wonder whether she could ever really be his-and whether she dares to tell him she is carrying another man’s baby.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
A Heart’s Betrayal is the fourth book in Colleen Coble’s A Journey of the Heat Series. This series is a previous series from Ms. Coble, this one is a very short book for each story. In this story, Emmie Croftner finds out that her late husband wasn’t the man she thought he was, the home and everything she had wasn’t hers after all. After relocating, Emmie meets a soldier that just might change her life.
As usual, Colleen Coble writes a story with characters are interesting and intriguing, and make the story interesting. The situations in Emmie’s life leave her with a life of tension, so much so that she can’t stay in her town any longer. This change in her life leaves a more and different type of tension, because of her new place and new people in her life. The one thing with these short books is that you have to wait a month to read the next short installment. For me, it is much easier to read the entire story at once. I am keeping all of these books and will read them again one after the other!
