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.

Where is the Johanna Lindsey writing that i remember?!
Johanna Lindsey is one author that I never know just what I will get when I buy one of her books. There seems to be an equal chance that I will get a gem or a raspberry. This book fell somewhere in between.
Due to a lifelong feud between rival families in Montana, Tiffany Warren is betrothed at an early age to the son of their enemy, Hunter Callahan. Of course, Tiffany was raised in New York society and is way to hoity-toity to ever live in lawless, uncivilized Montana. However since she promised her mother she would at least visit Montana and get to know Hunter.
The courtship period between Tiffany/Jennifer and Hunter only lasts a couple of weeks, the relationship between them does not feel rushed. Hunter is a very like able character and even though he is portrayed as a big flirt, he is not shown to be sexually promiscuous. However his character was somewhat underdeveloped compared to Tiffany’s and there is very little discernible growth in Hunter during the course of the book.
As I grew to like Tiffany, my enjoyment in the book grew as well. This book will not make any Top 10 lists of mine or even the Top 100, but it is worth the read if you give it a chance.
My name is Anna and I am from Greece. I am mostly a super crazy Editor, a completely crazy mum of two and of course I LOVE AUDIOBOOKS!!!
Easy and interesting read, I really enjoyed it very much. I like Johanna Lindesy's books and this one even though it was different, it was very good.
Thank you very much Johanna Lindsey and of course the wonderful voice and narration of Meredith Mitchell.
Love books. Can get lost in them and spend hours there.
This story is a good tug at your heart kinda story. Love the way the it pulled you in to a time period long ago, but still was very fresh and new.

Sometimesi I just want entertainment with a happy ending. Its a nice story. Love Montana as a beautiful backdrop.
it was very relaxing to listen to, even with the action going on, and the imminent peril around the corner that you could just feel and were waiting for! (Tiffany to be caught in her web) but very lovable with a hint of danger!
with many pauses due to cooking and kids, I did listen to it without listening/reading other books...I just had to get to the good stuff!
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.
