About this ebook

Nora Wilding woke up in a body that wasn’t her own. Her life in 21st century L.A. was brought to a humiliating end, and now her soul has been sent to a Montana ranch… in 1875! When she asked to return as a rich young woman, going back in time was not what she had in mind! Still, she can make this work. The important thing is to stay away from love. Each of her prior lives ended when she fell in love… but that doesn't mean she has to live without sex, right?

Ranch foreman Seth Murdoch can’t get over the change in Nora. No longer sickly and meek, this Nora is strong, stubborn, and set on seducing him into her bed. Seth promised her pa that he’d watch over her. That doesn’t include giving in to the passion burning through his soul, no matter how tempting her sweet kisses may be.

Under the starlit sky, the two surrender to feelings they can no longer deny. But if Nora braves that final step from lust to love, will she die yet again? Or this time, will she find Heaven in his arms?

This ebook was certainly unique. I'll give it that much. But the references aren't from the same time periods or make connective sense to me (not to mention anyone that really talked like that - using oblique name comparisons - would be incredibly irritating longterm. Every once in a while, o.k., but still... it made it hard for me to emphasize with the protagonist.) But more important/damaging for me were the unforced mistakes that were obviously from using speech-to-text... and then not checking your work. after the first few I started actually putting a quick note beside them. Things like 'Dad burn it', etc - I marked 8. There were also a few errors that were just structural in nature. My rating is still a 3/5, it was an interesting ride. But with a good editor this could have been a 5/5.😖

About the author

 USA Today best selling author Maureen Child is the author of more than ninety romance novels and novellas. Maureen is a five time nominee for the prestigious Rita award from Romance Writers of America.   

One of her novels, A POCKETFUL OF PARADISE, was made into a CBS-TV movie called The Soul Collector, starring Melissa Gilbert, Bruce Greenwood and Ossie Davis. 

Maureen was not only on the Texas set to watch her characters come to life in front of the cameras, she was also tossed into the last scene by her husband and the producer, who both thought this would be a fun way to humiliate an author!

When her kids were small, Maureen started writing as not only a way to stay sane, but in the hopes of finding a job she could do and stay at home with them. Sanity is still an issue, but she did manage to write her way into a career she wouldn’t trade for anything.

Over the years, she’s written under lots of different names and she prefers the term ‘pseudonym’ to ‘alias’.  As Ann Carberry, she wrote western historical romances. As Kathleen Kane, she wrote not only Americana romances, but western paranormal romances as well. As Sarah Hart, she wrote one really spectacular western paranormal that is still one of her favorites.  And once, Ann Carberry even wrote a Victorian historical which she absolutely loved doing.

Under her own name, Maureen writes short contemporary novels for Silhouette Desire—books she loves to write because of their fast pace and condensed story telling. Maureen is also writing funny, contemporary paranormal romances for NAL and darker paranormal stories for Silhouette Nocturne.

Life is busy but when she isn’t writing you can find Maureen sitting under her ‘thinking tree’, coming up with new ideas for even more stories. When she isn’t dreaming up a new book or writing a current one, Maureen loves to travel. Her favorite vacation spot is Ireland, with Scotland coming in a very close second.  She and her husband love a good road trip and Maureen’s looking forward to the day when she can actually drive to Ireland. Talk about the best of both worlds!

Maureen Child is a native Southern Californian who has recently moved with her family to the mountains of Utah where she's learning to deal with snow on the road and deer in the yard.
