A prequel to the Dancing Moon Ranch series.
Ruth Crawford’s private investigator is all but certain that ranch owner, Matt Kincaid’s adopted daughter is Ruth’s child, who was kidnapped five years before. But even though Ruth manages to land the job as nanny to Matt’s six-year-old daughter, she must tread carefully. Matt’s the maverick in a powerful family of attorneys and politicians, and Ruth can’t predict what they might do if the adoption is challenged. But Ruth’s carefully-laid plan starts to unravel when Matt begins to suspect her of being the woman who gave up his daughter for adoption and she’s come to take her back… which will be over his cold dead body.
