Nominated for Best Historical Romance Love and Laughter! "Generously peppered with laughter, poignancy, and multi-dimensional characters...beautiful, heart-touching love story." – RT Book Reviews
Generations of Dolan women have been blessed--or cursed--with the "sight," but none more so than four-year-old Jenna. To save Jenna from their wicked stepfather's greedy clutches, spinster Sophie Dolan kidnaps her little sister, poses as a widow with a young daughter, and accepts a job as schoolteacher in rough-and-tumble Tanglewood, Nevada.
To Sheriff Ridge Hawkins, the world is black and white, wrong and right, and nothing in between. If he gets wind of a kidnapper in his town, Sophie will lose the little girl she loves... and her freedom.
Ridge knows the fiery redhead is wanted--by him. In fact, she's everything he ever wanted: strong, loving, and as passionate as a man could wish for. But when he discovers that Sophie is a virgin, and not Jenna's mother after all, he goes on a hunt to discover what else she's hiding. Will Ridge have to choose between the woman he loves and the law he believes in?

Maureen was not only on the Texas set to watch her characters come to life in front of the cameras, she was also tossed into the last scene by her husband and the producer, who both thought this would be a fun way to humiliate an author!
Maureen Child is a native Southern Californian who has recently moved with her family to the mountains of Utah where she's learning to deal with snow on the road and deer in the yard.
