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.

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.
Johanna Lindsay is an auto download for me and she has branched out from her brilliant historical novels to delve into the world of the cowboys - with great success.
Spoilt, yet mentally tormented, Tiffany finally meets her betrothed a handsome cowboy named Hunter and the attraction begins but so too does a borrowed identity which leads to disaster in the kitchen, tears, frustration but there's a building romance that's unfortunately doomed before it ever begins.
Blink and you miss the sex bit but it's also filled with funny, sad, tender, romantic and joyous bits as slowly Tiffany learns that there's more to life than just table manners - as Hunter is all too keen to show her. Good supporting characters too make this an enjoyable listen as two feuding families finally share secrets, enemies are revealed and love does, eventually, conquer all.
Worth a credit? In my opinion anything J.L writes is a YES and this one is no exception.
You have got to be kidding me.... Really…… Johanna Lynsey how original, playing swticharoo with the maid (Then to make matters worse), in the house of the man you will marry. I paid for this drivel? I skimmed through about 19 chapters. 84 % of the book was about her deception. The book was good overall (if you like those kinds of childish games), but since it turned me off in the beginning I knew, that no matter how good the rest of the book, I would not enjoy it.
I LOVED this story!! It was SO wonderful, I truly enjoyed it and I wish there was a book two because the way the characters were developed were great. This has become one of my favorite books!!
The Narrator was great!!
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 really loved the story of her traveling, living with the enemies, learning to cook... That part was excellent, however Hunter seemed to make fun of Tiffany throught 3/4 of the book. They didn't have any meaningful converstations until near the end. They just didn't have the chemistry that could have made this book a 5 star for me.
I loved Meredith Mitchell! I will search out more books that she has read.
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.
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.
