Ms. Clark has penned a wonderfully, “feel-good-happy-ever-after” story with two endearing characters that readers will long remember.

Megan O’Connor has a lot on her shoulders. Her brother and sister-in-law have been killed, and she has promised to take custody of their two children. Megan decides that the best place to raise them is on the ranch she’s trying to make profitable. The obstacles thrown in her way are enough to make any woman want to give up, but she has an indomitable spirit that never bows under the pressures. And one of her main ‘pressures’ is her wealthy father, Burke, who insists that she give up the foolish notion of running a ranch and trying to raise two children. She’s more than tired of his excessive controlling ways, and decides it’s time to break away, so she fights all the harder to take care of the children and ranch when Burke cuts off her money supply.

Along comes sexy, brooding, cowboy Travis Knight, who has problems of his own. He doesn’t know it yet, but he’s just become Megan’s “much needed knight in shining armor”. Travis hires on as the ranch foreman, and it isn’t too long before he realizes that he needs to stay clear of Megan.

Through trials and errors, problems and obstacles, Megan and Travis work together to keep the ranch going and provide a home for the children. When Burke steps in to cause one final upheaval, Travis and Megan decide to marry “in-name-only” in order to keep the children with Megan. But they don’t --- yet --- realize their feelings for each other go beyond just attraction, and the longer they are together as ‘husband and wife’ the harder it is to fight their love.

A wonderful love story with a beautiful happy ending! Ms. Clark’s special writing talent in bringing to life her characters and making them so real that a reader feels she actually knows them, makes all her books keepers. Don’t miss this one.
