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!
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?
