Overview

Matilda Pennypacker would brave the untamed West for just one reason – to claim her orphaned nephew, the only family she had left in the world. She never imagined the boy would refuse to return with her to New York – nor that his obstinate uncle, Sheriff Michael Connor, would be so disturbingly handsome. Unfortunately, men like him weren’t attracted to women like her. Why, then, did he agree to take her as his wife for one year?

Mike was delighted to discover that beneath his temporary wife’s tightly bound exterior was a woman whose passions rivaled his own. This marriage of convenience was proving surprisingly inconvenient… for when their year was up, Mike wasn’t sure he’d be able to let her go.

Really loved this book! Sheriff Connor is just the kind of hero I love in a Western historical. Men in the old West appreciated a strong woman, and Matilda certainly has a mind of her own! ("I'm not one to interfere..." she always says right before interfering.) I love that Mike got such a kick out of her strength and independence. Made me feel like they're going to have a very happy life together. Definitely recommend this book!

I couldn't get over the name: Matilda Pennypacker. Ugh. So very UN-sexy. What was the author thinking? ##

Matilda was so stereotypical & rigid as a 'spinster' and the other characters weren't very well developed. It was a quick fluff piece that if I had the choice again, I wouldn't have spent the money on.
