Johanna Lindsey, the number-one New York Times best-selling author, presents a passionate novel of hidden identities, family secrets, and love that transcends a 50-year feud set in the 1880s in the majestic ranchland of the Montana territory.
Some young ladies marry for money and social standing, a few lucky ones marry for love - but Tiffany Warren is marrying to end a feud. Honoring her mother’s promise, Tiffany reluctantly travels west to meet her estranged father and his enemy’s eldest son, rancher Hunter Callahan. Once the Warrens and the Callahans are united by marriage, both clans will stop squabbling over a disputed strip of land.
In the chaos of a train robbery Tiffany seizes a golden opportunity. By assuming the identity of her father’s new housekeeper she can live with the father she never knew and assess his true character, as well as that of the neighboring cowboy to whom she is betrothed. But, too late, Tiffany discovers that the rivalry between the Warrens and the Callahans has escalated when the Callahans steal the Warrens’ housekeeper as soon as she steps off the train!
Now, Tiffany, who is pretending to be Jennifer Fleming, finds herself living in the enemy camp, under the same roof as her fiancé. All too soon she learns her intended is a handsome, sweet-talking charmer whom she has to fight off because he can’t keep his eyes - or his hands - off Jennifer. After Tiffany’s charade is exposed she refuses to marry Hunter to end the feud. As Hunter goes about claiming his rightful bride-to-be, he knows that although he loves two women - proper, elegant Tiffany as well as spunky, passionate Jennifer - he has only one heart to win.

Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.
The book was entertaining but the story was so unrealistic and predictable. The story did not seem well thought out. It could have been better. I have enjoyed many of Johanna Lindsey's books in the past, but this did not measure up.
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
I picked this book up in a sale and it was well worth they money. An heiress heads west to meet her finance through an arranged marriage. Her mother and father had been separated for 15 years and she grew up in the the lap of city luxury. Upon arriving in Montana she decided she needed a closer look at her fiancé and his family. By agreeing to work for them as a housekeeper she manages to get into the household and avoid meeting with her father. This is a very light hearted love story with some minor twists and turns. If you like hot steamy love scenes and gritty stories this is not the book for you!
Yes, I normally love this author.
Seanan McGuires's October Daye novels
Her reading was fine, the main character drove me crazy.
The main character is a spoiled brat who makes more bad decisions in the first 10 chapters pages than anyone should make in a life time. I couldn't even finish it.
I forced myself to finish this book. The story was different but yet the same. The narrator was ok but not my favorite. I wouldn't really recommend this book
I had a hard time connecting with this audiobook and it's a hard one for me to rate, because it had a cute storyline and could have been entertaining IF it didn't move so slowly. I had to stop listening to it several times, becoming irritated at it's slow pace. It seemed to take forever to reach the end of the book.
Meridith Mitchell performed well, yet did not pull me into the story, as some narrators have the ability to do... or maybe it was just the book.
My overall rating is less than satisfactory.
I read so I can write
This was a rather typical western romance. It was well written, but without anything that would make it unique. The mystery was a little unbelievable.
I have many Johanna Lindsey novels that I have really enjoyed, and will again. I'm not sorry I read this one, but won't read it again.
Say something about yourself!
I liked my western romance books with more romance and more sex and a bit more action. To make it seem real. The couple parts in the book were so low I didn't even realize they were making love. But all in all it was a nice romance book.
