Jenna Winslow is running away from scandal. She has become a mail-order bride with a small baby in tow. But keeping secrets and telling lies
isn't the way to start any kind of marriage.

The book is exactly what you'd expect from a Harlequin Historical. If you enjoy quick, historical romances, this one is just as good as the rest.

Keeping secrets and telling lies was no way to start a marriage....What else could a woman running from scandal do?

Theres something about Mary Burtons writing style that is so good; it grabs the reader from page 1. Although Jenna Winslow is innocent, she must leave Alexandria, Virginia. A scandal surrounds her family and Jenna is the only one left for the community to shun.

The man she thought she loved, Everett, wants no part of the swirling scandal. He demands she divest herself of the remaining evidence and become his wife. Jenna is devastated that Everett refuses to support her position then she finds out why he cannot. She has no alternative than to leave.

She accepts the marriage proposal of a rancher in Colorado (after the exchange of a few letters). Jenna leaves her social life and the easy existence she would have as the wife of a physician all because of her belief in what was right.

Rowe Mercer, Jenna quickly learns, is a force of nature. He doesnt worry what others think and has a strong sense of right and wrong. Jenna instantly feels safe although she cannot imagine why; Rowe frightens most folks.

The books Ive read by Mary Burton delve into emotional issues. Readers recognize how deeply felt these concerns are to the characters; they take the books to another level of appreciation and insight.

Keeping secrets and telling lies was no way to start a marriage. But what else, Jenna Winslow ruminated, could a woman running from scandal do? Who would ever want an unschooled virgin with a fatherless baby in tow? Certainly not rugges rancher Rowe Mercer, a man with demanding standards-and compelling charms>
