Joshua Grayson is not happy about his new sister-in-law's visit and he uses the term 'sister-in-law' loosely as Careen Kennedy Grayson was a complete stranger. Joshua's brother, Matthew, left the family ranch in the dead of night to run away and wed a woman he'd never met. The fact Matthew was killed moments after walking out of the church with his new bride merely adds insult to injury. Joshua struggles with resentment and trying not to blame Careen for his brother's death. But it is difficult not to harbor ill feelings when he knows she's keeping secrets. Despite his suspicions, Joshua slowly grows attracted to Careen and even starts to like her. Unfortunately, Joshua knows all too well the folly of loving a woman he cannot trust.

Careen Kennedy Grayson was married and widowed within minutes of the other. When her obsessive cousin, Luther, arrives minutes after Matthew's death, she knows deep down he's the one who killed Matthew. Luther is arrested and held for trial while Careen takes her husband's body back to his family. Soon after arriving at the loving Grayson ranch, Careen learns of her mother-in-law's heart condition. Unwilling to cause undue stress, Careen decides to wait until after Luther's trial to speak the full truth of their son's death. Soon Careen grows embedded in family and ranch life, getting closer to the Grayson's with each passing day. She finds herself unnaturally drawn to Joshua and she knows their budding attraction will only complicate matters... Especially when the family discovers her cousin did indeed kill Matthew.

Oh I want to hurt this guy.... Aren't they cousins? Or cousins were allowed to marry then?

Let's blame the fools who thought it would be a hoot to gun fight in the streets when they could have had Words!

I have a feeling that it won't always be smooth sailing for Careen, but I truly look forward to her journey!! This is an excellent beginning and I look forward to the rest of her story. I will continue this tomorrow. Outstanding job!!!! :) :D

My my, what a lovely western story you have going on here. I feel for Careen, poor woman was married, and then widowed is such a short period of time... And Matthew Greyson, the poor lad, died so young... we barely even got to know him either. And Luther... oh Luther you possessive and evil man!
