In Brenda Jernigan's spellbinding novel, a surprise bequest offers three women a fresh start in America, new hope, and the romantic adventure of a lifetime... This is Shannon's story.
Shannon McKinley flees Scotland to America hoping for a new life. She has answered an ad to be a nanny at Star Ranch in the Texas Territory. It doesn't matter that she has never been a nanny. If she can handle men...she can handle children. As Shannon tames Luke Griffin's two wild children, Luke proves a little more difficult as he still mourns his dead wife. Shannon will never accept being second best. As she begins to melt the ice from Luke's heart, can he really let the past go and take a chance on love?
When a feisty Scot steps out of the stage in Cottonwood, Texas, Luke Griffin can do nothing but stare. He advertised for old and ugly, but this woman doesn't fit that description at all. And she is much too small to survive in Texas. He will send her back on the next stage. But for now, Luke will take her to the ranch and ignore the heat that runs though his veins every time she is near him.
In this wild and rugged land, will Shannon's dark secret endanger the family she has come to love?
