A teacher with a secret. A preacher with secret. Still in love…

Sven is a preacher with a past. He’s been a guest of the territorial prison.

Caroline is a teacher in trouble. She’s pretending to be a widow, but the blond baby belongs to Sven.

Too bad he doesn’t know.

Can they overcome their checkered history?

Can they forgive, forget, and move forward?

Will a small Texas town embrace or exile them when their secret sins come to light?

This is book three in the Lonestar Love series but can be enjoyed as a standalone.

Publisher’s Note: This steamy historical Western romance contains elements of action, adventure, and power exchange.

A Note from the Author

Secret Baby…that trope has always fascinated me. How did one keep a baby secret? Certainly, the mother knew about the baby, so what was up with the father? Did he not know? not care? a little of both?

There are many possible answers to that question, all of them intriguing and fraught with real and imagined betrayals. 

I loved imagining and creating the dilemma of Sven, Caroline and their son, Micah. He’s the preacher. She’s the teacher. Journey back with them to a small Texas town in the late 1800’s when dominant men treasured and protected their women, tempers and bottoms ran hot, and something as precious as a baby cannot remain a secret for long.
