 From an award-winning and #1 bestselling author comes a "steamy historical romance of self-discovery and unexpected love."

When Ruby marries the man she's loved all her life, James Lucas, she thought she knew his heart as well as her own. But as she eagerly awaits him to perform the marriage act on their wedding night she discovers a devastating secret that rips their fragile marriage apart.

It would be scandalous to leave James, so Ruby agrees to continue their farce of a marriage as they travel across the country to visit James' ailing father in Manhattan. Stuck in the confines of their tiny train compartment, Ruby's desire for her husband twists with the repulsion of her discovery and starts a battle inside Ruby she can't control.

When they arrive, the holiday season is all around, but Ruby feels nothing of the magic, struggling to come to terms with the truth about her marriage and her unrelenting lust for her husband. But when James's father takes a turn for the worst, Ruby puts her hurt and anger aside to support her husband. But her rejection has turned him against her and it may be too late to mend all that has been broken...

Can Ruby and James find a way back to each other or will the games their playing to protect their hearts ruin their only chance at happiness...

(Can be read as a stand-alone)

FROM AN AWARD-WINNING AND #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR COMES A “HOT, SEXY, AND SINFULLY DELICIOUS HISTORICAL ROMANCE!”  

Just before Josephine’s eighteenth birthday, her brother kicks her out of their home and ships her off to Oklahoma to work for a widower and his two children. With no money and her parents gone, Josephine has no choice but to board the train to a strange new life.

When Jack Harrington put an ad in the paper for a young man to work his farm, the last person he expected to step off the train was Josephine Taylor—a spirited young woman from Manhattan. Jack believes Jo is behind the lies her brother told to get the job and tries to send her back to Manhattan. But always a survivor, Jo manipulates a deal to stay with Jack and his children for a month and prove her worth. Jack warns Jo he runs a strict home. If she disobeys he’ll slap her backside as red as a rooster’s waddle. Undeterred, Jo agrees to his terms.

Jack’s son, six-year-old Tommy, immediately takes to Jo, desperate for a mother, but sixteen-year-old Ruby is apprehensive and territorial, which is exacerbated when her beau turns his eyes to Jo. Stubborn and willful, Jo tests Jack’s limits. But soon the struggle between them turns passionate. Jo fights against her new and strange yearnings for Jack, but her willpower weakens with every battle they forge.

Does Jo have the courage to fight against the restraints of society and Jack’s guarded heart and fall into the intoxicating embrace of her truest desires...
