BECOMING GEORGIA by EMILY CARMICHAEL
FROM FRONTIER GIRL... TO CITY WOMAN?
Georgie Kennedy is so mad she could spit. Just weeks after
she sold one of her Arizona gold claims to Cougar Barnes,
some two-bit lawyer has the gall to tell her the mine wasn't
hers to begin with. Georgie knows her rascally grandpa is
behind the whole mess-and that she'd better high-tail it to
Chicago to set him straight. Should be simple enough. She's
wiped the floor with men twice her size. How much trouble
can one old coot be?
...Plenty, that's how much. Grandpa could give a mule
in stubborn-and he's hell-bent on turning "Miss Georgia"
into a petticoat-wearing, curtsying priss. He tells her
she stays on in Chicago for exactly one year-and makes nice
with the strait-laced simpleton he wants her to wed-the
claim will be hers, free and clear. Now, getting hitched is
about the last thing on Georgie's mind. But between her
unwanted suitor and Cougar Barnes, who comes all the way
to Chicago to make sure he gets his property back-and to
check on Georgie-she has a lot of thinking to do. And soon
she has to decide if her heart belongs in the big city...or
home on the range.
Getting hitched is the last thing on Georgie Kennedy's
mind. But if she wants to hold onto her Arizona gold mine,
she may have to make nice with the strait-laced simpleton
her grandfather wants her to wed.
