A woman running from her cousins family believing they will take the baby away ends up working as a cook in the local diner. The old cook comes back and the woman was going to loose her job. Instead a handsome rancher comes to the rescue and hires her on as the cook and housekeeper.
There is a lot that needs to be said, but things just keep getting in the way for the truth to come out.
The plan is for the woman to come to the ranch, fall in love with one of the brothers and keep the family together. But what the handsome rancher doesn't know is that his family is looking for him to be the one falling in love.
A great story! I'll be looking for the rest of this series.

Good story

Sweet, clean, cowboy romance. A bit difficult to read due to grammar and punctuation errors.

    Wholesome

    Characters and plot better than many other romance stories. Can't buy into Emma's fears about telling the truth about the baby....seem a bit overwraught. Sex hinted at without any lurid detail.

    Cute and Sweet

    Really a nice western romance. No sex, just some talk about it. Really enjoyed all the character's in this story. Wish there was an epilogue though. ( ljb)

    sweet love story

    Very southern, with a family you can*t help but to want to be part of. Somewhere between the flirtation and falling in love, the plot sort of lost me. It was a rough transition there. Very PG, suitable for most.

    Well

    Could have benefitted from and editor. Lots of grammatical and punctuation errors. Difficult transitioning and some silly reasons behind actions. It wasnt a complete flop, however.

    Sweet story

    I really liked this book. The plot was believeable, the
    characters honest and the writting well done. Finally a strong lead male character who isn't a jerk, or ridiculously wealthly, or deeply damaged. The female lead has balanced strengths and weaknesses. They actually make sense together.

    Good Read!

    This was a great little romance. Left me wanting more. A few grammatical errors, but the story itself was great. Can't wait to read more from Rita.
