When a clumsy governess from New York meets a lonely, bitter rancher, more than her heart will fall. Book 4 of the Malloy family series. Ray Malloy is a single father in an age when every child has two parents. Abandoned by his shallow wife, he struggles to find the balance between being a father and being a successful rancher. At the end of his rope with his wild child daughter, he hires a governess from New York to teach his daughter, Melody, to be a lady. Lillian Wickham is desperate for a job, poor as a church mouse, and determined as a bulldog. Arriving in Wyoming to a chilly reception, and saddled with a five-year-old girl that could be mistaken for an incredibly, dirty little boy does not daunt her. Ray is determined to avoid women completely, to ignore Lillian's luscious figure, ruby red lips, and husky voice. Lillian is determined to turn Melody into a lady, come hell or high water, and avoid the hellion's devastatingly attractive father at the same time. Until one night when Lillian's clumsiness drops her right into Ray's arms and their passion takes on a life of its own. When unexpected danger steals into their lives, and threatens the stubborn child they both love, will their passion be strong enough to survive, or will it tear their world apart? Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, some violence.
