Laying Claim: Halsey HomecomingHalsey Homecoming Trilogy is the on-going saga of the Halsey Brothers Series. Jeremy Duncan commits to haul one last load of supplies across the great interior of the Yukon before heading home. But, he has to trade his pack animals for sled dogs and leave Skagway in the middle of a blizzard due to one strong-willed, business-minded beauty. Determined to find her older brother, Clara Bixbee doesn't care how she gets across the pass, as long as she does, and soon. Hiring handsome pack guide Jeremy Duncan seems to be her best choice. Especially after she saves a young girl being beaten by the local gang leader and needs to escape Skagway fast. This book has explicit love scenes.

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This story takes place in the Yukon, and starts with Clara Bixbee, arriving in Skagway and being taking advantage of right away but she does not figure it out for a while and when she does she is upset. She is there to find her brother who is in the Yukon mining for gold and she needs to hire a guide and find her brother to get back home because their father died and the man who is now running their family store is worthless. A women at this time cannot run or own a business. She meets Jeremy Duncan who thinks she is a good looking women and likes her spirit but knows that her voicing her opinion is going to get her into trouble. By the end of the first night he is right. They are selling his team of dogs and leaving town because of her and with the snow coming he is wanting to make the pass before it is closed. This is going to be his last trip and then he is leaving home to his family. What continues to happen is her getting him into a series of events that the more he looks at her he is becoming, more attracted to her and she is becoming more attracted to him. A very well written book with a lot of action and a fast paced story. I really enjoyed this book. I got this book from net galley.
