Book 5 in Morgan Family series (2004)
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Shay Morgan has never met a woman he can’t charm – ever. When old Ben Edwards asks Shay to bring his stubborn daughter Jenny home for one last visit before he leaves this world, Shay is sure she’ll gladly come home with him. Rumors fly and Shay is warned that the last two men who tried to bring Jenny Edwards back never returned. Undaunted, Shay flashes his heart-breakin’ smile and heads off to retrieve his bounty, betting the town that he will do what no man before him could – and within thirty days.
Dr. Jenny Edwards has no love for the father who abandoned her and her sick mother when she was a child. She has no desire to see him again or any more of his minions who have attempted to lure her back.
Jenny sees men and marriage as a losing situation for women – nothing more than pain and poverty. She is determined not to get emotionally involved with any man. But she is lonely and dreams of an angel who will comfort her and never leave her side as she works day and night to heal the wounds of the people of her growing town.
When Shay rides into town he’s taken aback by the beautiful, gentle doctor. He opts not to tell her why he is in town, knowing he must gain her trust before he can take her home.
