Barbara Johnson is the proud, fiercely independent mother of infant Sarah, a child of war. On a chilly November evening she gets a rare knock on her door. She opens it to find a tall, dark stranger looking for work, one who lets her know that her neighbors know he's come to her doorstep. Reassured, she invites him in for supper and to negotiate the terms when a second, even rarer knock is heard ....

Now Barbara has to claim the stranger sitting at her kitchen table as her husband. Because she has just opened the door to her worst enemy – a woman she does not know, but one she fears has a claim on her beloved Sarah. For Sarah is the child of the British general who was killed the year before during the Second War of Independence. And Mrs. Ross wants to lay claim to her husband's child.

But Mrs. Ross has no claim if the stranger plays along with Barbara's assertion that he's the father of her child.

Soul-scarred and haunted by a tragic past, Morgan Harris steps in to stand between baby Sarah and sorrow .... Here, amid a web of needful deception, he reaches out for redemption. Will it elude him one more time?

About the Author

Julie Tetel Andresen has written about language and love for more than 20 years. A professor of linguistics at Duke University, Julie has also written more than twenty romance novels and novellas. Before moving to publish exclusively on the Amazon Kindle library, she was published by Fawcett Crest, Warner Books, and Harlequin. Her novels cross many sub-genres of romance, including mystery, contemporary, BDSM, motorcycle club, and historicals.

Julie loves to travel, and has lived for extended periods in Germany, France, Romania, Vietnam, and Mongolia. As a child, Julie had a passion for playing the piano, and transferred that passion as an adult into writing romance novels and scholarly books about language. For Julie, writing essays in foreign languages is like playing scales and arpeggios as a warm-up exercise for writing in English.
