About the Book
Book: Protecting the Mountain Man’s Treasure
Author: Misty M. Beller
Genre: Christian Historical Romance
Release Date: February 6, 2024
In the wild mountains of the Montana Territory, the Coulter ranch is a place of family, loyalty…and a hidden fortune.
Jude Coulter is far more comfortable in his family’s sapphire mine tucked in the Montana mountains than the bustling streets of New York City where he’s been sent to deliver a shipment of gems. His relief at boarding the train for the first leg of his journey home is short-lived when an accident renders him unconscious.
Angela Larkin worked hard to earn this assignment for the Treasury—an undercover mission to determine the source of the sapphires brought each year for auction in the city. When an accident causes her target to lose his recent memory, Angela jumps at the opportunity to create the ideal ruse. Jude seems surprised to learn the two of them had married and were returning from a glorious wedding trip, but he doesn’t question too strongly.
Yet when an unexpected threat arises, they find themselves dependent on the other to navigate the treacherous journey home. As the danger mounts, so too does an attraction neither of them anticipated. But can this love withstand the revelation of their tangled beginnings?
From a USA Today bestselling author comes a mountain family saga filled with a pretend marriage, amnesia, undercover agents, and a love worth treasuring far more than riches.

More from Misty
In my latest release, the hero and heroine travel up the Missouri River in a steamboat, and I loved the research for that portion of the story!
Traveling on a steamboat in 1869 was an experience like no other, and took about two months to travel from St. Louis, Missouri to Fort Benton in the Montana Territory. Passengers would step aboard these floating palaces to find ornate decorations, plush accommodations, and the promise of new scenery at every bend in the river. Despite the occasional discomforts of travel—such as noisy engines and the ever-present risk of boiler explosions—passengers reveled in the novelty and the relative speed of steamboat travel.
The Missouri was notorious for its shifting channels, snags, and sandbars, which could easily ensnare even the most experienced pilot’s vessel. Navigating this river required an intimate knowledge of its capricious nature, and the river pilots were worth their weight in gold.
River towns along the Missouri thrived thanks to the steamboats. These towns became hotbeds of economic activity, where goods were loaded and unloaded, and stories from faraway places were exchanged. The arrival of a steamboat was an event, often met with fanfare and excitement by the local populace.
I pray you love the peek at steamboat life in Protecting the Mountain Man’s Treasure! J

I adored the first book from the Brothers of Sapphire Ranch series, Healing the Mountain Man's Heart, and was looking forward to read the second installment, Protecting the Mountain Man's Treasure. I once again taking wonderful journey in the Montana Territory and this time with Angela and Jude. The two are faced with unknowns and dangers that made me want to continue to turn the pages until the end to see how it would all end for them.
I give Protecting the Mountain Man's Treasure five stars. I highly recommend it for fans of clean historical fiction. I can not wait to get my hands on the third addition from the Brothers of Sapphire Ranch series, Earning the Mountain Man's Trust.
I received a paperback copy of Misty M Beller's Protecting the Mountain Man's Treasure from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
