Overview

Cody Garret likes everything in its place: horse in the corral, six-gun in his holster, money in the bank. There's no way on earth he can tolerate a woman like Shanna Van Alstyne. Her spirit is as fiery as the blazing sun, a temper to match. Southern manners dictate he has to save her life, but then she's on her own, out of his life. Or is she?
Southern men! How on earth did the rumors of their gentlemanly behavior ever gain credence? Shanna almost believes that dumb tittle-tattle at first — sensing a haven from the maelstrom of her life in the strong arms of a chestnut-haired stranger in tight denims. But of all the nerve! Just because he saves Shanna and her little brother, Toby, from becoming twin blood spots on the walkway in Liberty, Missouri, doesn't give him the right to step in and discipline Toby.
She's determined to banish the nagging persistence of a man she will, hopefully, never have to cross paths with again. There's another man somewhere in Missouri she has to find — and convince to marry her. She'll have to carry the ghost of the love she develops for Cody Garret with her to her grave.

    Very good

    Ok, this book was great but the constant mix up of Toby's age was very distracting. On minute the boy is five going on six, the next they say his father has not seen his mother in ten years or they are saying he is almost ten. The plot and caracters are wonderful but like i said, the age thing was very distracting.
