From New York Times Bestselling Author Ruth Ryan Langan ... A Historical Romance Classic.
"Ruth Ryan Langan tells a story that's warm as a quilt on a snowy evening and tender as love's first kiss." - Nora Roberts
Irish immigrant Molly O'Brien has earned herself quite a reputation in Delight, Wisconsin. Raising four orphans all on her own certainly hasn't helped. Nor has the fact that she's just taken in two strangers with serious gunshot wounds, planning to nurse them back to health. There's just one problem. One of the men is an outlaw and the other's a federal marshal -- and she has no idea which is which ....
When U.S. Marshal Hodge Egan wakes to a beautiful vision standing over him, he can't believe his good fortune. That is, until he realizes the woman seems to be under the mistaken impression that he's an outlaw. Unfortunately, by the time she realizes the truth, it might be too late for both of them.

Predictable. Nothing groundbreaking but a nice little story. Not in my I'll have to read this again pile--but I would pass it on to a friend.
In 1890 Wisconsin, U.S. Marshal Hogan Egan looks forward to capturing killer Eli Otto so that he can claim the reward and quit his dangerous occupation. Thirty year old spinster Molly O'Brien runs the family farm while raising four orphans, her nieces and family friend Flora.------------ However, Molly and her young female horde are stunned when they find two near dead males on their land. She knows one is a Marshall and the other a cold killer, but she has no idea who is who. Each claims to be the lawman, but Molly¿s heart reaches out to the man she believes would never harm the children or her. She is proved correct when Otto kidnaps her neice to use as a hostage pawn to escape.------------------ This is an entertaining late nineteenth century Americana romance starring likable lead protagonists who know their responsibilities must come before their attraction. Interestingly when Molly faces the Hobson¿s Choice between the ¿Lady and the Tiger¿, she lets her heart decide for her as she believes that the tender and caring he gives towards the young ones is the real Hogan. With a nod to What¿s My Line, fans will know that Hogan and Molly make this western romantic suspense a HEART¿S DELIGHT.-------- Harriet Klausner
