The Rancher's Temporary Engagement

GIVEAWAY
HENRIE, STACY
THE RANCHER'S TEMPORARY ENGAGEMENT

Undercover fiancee

The Pinkerton agent that Edward Kent hired is intelligent, capable -- and unexpectedly female! Though shocked to know that Maggy Worthing we be investigating the threats to his Wyoming horse ranch, Edward needs to find the culprit. And if that means a temporary engagement to give Maggy a cover story, he'll play along with the feisty detective.

Maggy always gets her man -- at least when it comes to solving crimes. The young widow refuses to marry again and land under another husband's thumb. Unmasking Edward's enemies will earn her a longed-for promotion...but the heart has it's own mysteries. Could working together with the handsome English aristocrat spark a real and lasting relationship?

My Review:

Seriously -- what could be better than a cowboy hero? A British aristocrat cowboy hero that's what! I'm just...beyond twitterpated and well into gobsmackingly smitten over Edward.  Even Maggy finds unguarded moments when she feels attracted to him...and that's saying something because she has no intentions of ever being controlled by a man again. This unconventional heroine is content to make her own way in a man's world and I absolutely love that about her. But there is also a heap of vulnerability buried under that professional veneer and Edward is astute enough to notice. Be still my heart -- I so love an emotionally observant hero.

Of course there's a mystery and encroaching danger which contributes to the page-turning compulsion of this read. As does the touching faith thread about the nature of our relationship with God. This one is Awesomesauce with a capital A!

  13. I was going to pass on this one until I read "Pinkerton agent." I don't know why books featuring them intrigue me, and it's even more fun when the agent is a woman. Your review has convinced me this is another book to add to my "want to read" list.

    1. I know -- Pinkerton agent buts me into bibliophile chills as well! I believe they were the forerunners for the FBI...so maybe that's why. Good luck, Pam.
