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 love JL's books. Her skill of writing is amazing. Started reading her at the age of 13 and 17 years later, still perfect! This novel just reminds me why I love her stories so much! Listening to it just made my day! Her voice was wonderful portraying each character.
I love this book. The sceeming throughout the story gives it life. It's almost like reading 4 books at once. You have 4 or more love stories happening at once, killings, train robberies, & kidnappings. You will love this book!!!!!!
I have read and/or listened to almost all of Johanna Lindsey's books. This was very disappointing. No where near the quality of her previous books. I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually written by someone else.
I thought is very boring
Don't waste your money or time
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 love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over 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.
This book is great. Wonderful story line and a great performance. I have listened it it at least ten times since I bought it. I hope this narrator and author comb continue to make awesome audio books
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.
