Teagen McMurray would ride to hell and back to protect his land. He’d certainly never felt that way about a woman. At least not until Jessie Barton showed up with her three little girls, desperate for a place to stay. Suddenly he finds himself proposing marriage, telling himself it is only to protect her and her children.

Jessie had no place to go except Whispering Mountain, and to Teagen, the one person who couldn’t deny her, thanks to the correspondence he shared with her dead husband. But what will happen once the man she’s loved through his letters discovers her tangle of lies?

    " I truly loved this book with all the many stories that are within the book. The toughness of the west with the men who live there makes a wonderful story. This is the third of her series and I loved them all. "

    " Jessie takes her 3 girls to Teagen McMurray at Whispering Mountain after her husband dies to keep the girls from her mother-in-law from taking them away from her. He thinks he's been writing to her husband (owner of a book store) all these years, but it was actually her that returned his letters and sent him books. Cute love story. "
