Book Description

Matilda Pennypacker would brave the untamed West for just one reason – to claim her orphaned nephew, the only family she had left in the world. She never imagined the boy would refuse to return with her to New York – nor that his obstinate uncle, Sheriff Michael Connor, would be so disturbingly handsome. Unfortunately, men like him weren’t attracted to women like her. Why, then, did he agree to take her as his wife for one year?

Mike was delighted to discover that beneath his temporary wife’s tightly bound exterior was a woman whose passions rivaled his own. This marriage of convenience was proving surprisingly inconvenient… for when their year was up, Mike wasn’t sure he’d be able to let her go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm, Funny and Sexy! March 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Independent spinster, Matilda Pennypacker leaves her beloved New York and travels to the wilds of Montana to collect her sister's orphaned son. Confirmed bachelor, Sheriff Michael Conner is happily giving up some of his sinning ways to raise his brother's orphaned son.

The very same boy Matilda is determined to take back to "cultured" New York.

This story is a heartwarming, funny and sweetly sexy tale of three lost souls learning to trust in love and creating a real family together. Maureen Child delivers another charming, not-to-be-missed Historical Western Romance in WISHES!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved itl. May 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. It features a spinster from NYC with no self esteem where men are concerned that has manifested itself in at least one odd way. She ends up going west to fetch her nephew whose parents have just died. There she meets the hot sheriff who falls for her. I love when the heroine isnt the traditional beauty but still gets the boy. And the boy is definately worth it. Also, the secondary characters are great. I especially liked the saloon owner who played beethoven!

The story is a fast read, the characters are warm and funny, you just can't wait to finish and see what will happen.

After finishing this one, I bought 4 other books from Ms. Child she is certainly a great author.

Another funny,sexy book by Maureen! Matilda is quite a unique lady and her taste in clothes fr a young boy are in serious question, but leave it to the Sheriff to tame her! I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good romance with a smile thrown in!

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a great book. November 11, 2012
By Trish
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book this morning and just finished it. I just loved Matilda (except for her name. Mattie was much better but not used enough.)
Mike was a terrific hero and Terrence/Terry has just enough attitude for a seven year old.
I have read 4 or 5 of Ms. Child's westerns and have yet to roll my eyes at something said or done and that's really saying a lot.
So, I'm off to read one of her other books now, maybe Small Treasures, maybe Charms. I'm not sure which but whichever one it is I'd be willing to bet I'll enjoy it.

A great story. Matilda and Mike make a great couple and her interaction with the town, had tears rolling down my face I laughed so hard. This was a lovely romance from Maureen Child. Can't wait for her next story.

This book was so funny and quirky! It is a definite must read if you're trying to settle down from a stressful, day/month/semester! Both characters are lovable, and hilarious, and the plot is pretty good too. I hate cats, but you gotta love the kitty in this book, he just adds another comical side to this whole story.
