Destiny's Embrace by Beverly Jenkins - Romance>Historical Other
Gentleman Seeks Housekeeper.
Must be willing to travel.
Desperate for another life away from Philadelphia, headstrong and beautiful Mariah Cooper answers
an advertisement for a housekeeper at the other
end of the continent. Waiting in California is
the most breathtaking--and arrogant--man she
has ever met . . . and he'd like nothing better
than for Mariah to go back home!
Logan Yates has run Destiny, the family ranch,
since he was a boy. He doesn't need this Eastern miss
his stepmother hired, though his home's chaotic
state suggests otherwise. Still, he's secretly pleased
that Mariah gives as good as she gets--and he must
fight the urge to take her in his arms and kiss her
whenever she proudly stands her ground. But when
he's in danger of losing her, Logan will have to
choose between pride . . . and his heart's true desire.
