Secrets and lies made poor references, Linnea McConaughy knew. But her survival depended upon keeping her past hidden, especially from her employer, rancher Will Tucker. True, he'd shown her kindness, even tenderness, but could he ever accept her shameful past and another man's baby?

Will Tucker did not like surprises, and Linnea McConaughy was not the sturdy, past-her-prime widow he'd expected to manage his household. Instead, she was a tiny slip of womanhood desperately seeking a place to belong. Yet much to his growing surprise, that place seemed to be in his home and his heart!

Additional Information

Will and Linnea's story is one I'd wanted to tell for quite a while now. When I had the opportunity to write it, I had fun pairing the mismatched couple and seeing how long Will could resist her.

Will Tucker is a gruff impatient rancher, eager to hire an experienced cook and housekeeper so he can shift part of the workload from his own shoulders to those of the capable Widow McConoughy. Then Linnea McConoughy shows up. She's young. Timid. And entirely inappropriate for the hardships and workload she's hired to handle. And she has secrets... After all,, what would be the fun of throwing these two people together if there weren't tantalizing secrets in the mix?
