The one suitor Mara Lawton cannot add to her collection is the one she wants most--Clay Stedman. Clay has just arrived in Cedar Springs to work the Stedman ranch. His widowed aunt is leaving to visit family back East, and Clay must find someone to care for his little sister and perform the household chores--like cooking for fourteen cowboys, doing the laundry, and feeding the hogs. Mara offers Clay her services, despite having never cooked a meal, washed a garment, or gone near a hog in her life. Clay is taken with Mara's looks, but a recent heartbreak makes him wary--that and the fact she doesn't share his faith in God. For Mara, whose self-worth is based on her family's wealth and royal lineage, obstacles and reverses create a terrible inner turmoil. Will she cling to her own ways or allow God to move in her life?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entertaining and Interesting Mara's story is really great because she goes through quite the transformation as a character. It's especially interesting because of Denise's tendency to depict characters that will have their own novels in a collection in other stories of the series. After reading her interactions with characters in other stories, getting to the novel written in her perspective was especially interesting because I could finally see what was going on in her head. This book touches on more than just romance and is a humbling novel that encourages obedience to God's Word, patience and overcoming prejudice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short, but very nice I liked reading this book very much. It is funny, but serious at the same time. Denise Hunter became one of my favorite writers in a very short period!
