Open Country (Western Romance #2) (Paperback)
Love, lies, and the perils of passion unfold in the second western romance in Kaki Warner's Blood Rose Trilogy... Hank Wilkins doesn't remember the train wreck that he barely survived--and he certainly doesn't remember getting married. Still, honor demands he take Molly McFarlane and her niece and nephew home to his ranch in New Mexico Territory, where his new wife is quickly caught up in the boisterous Wilkins family. Caught in a desperate situation, Molly told a lie to ensure the futures of her sister's children--children she knows little about caring for. She knows even less about caring for a man, especially silent, brooding types like Hank. But even as Molly and Hank discover each other, the spectre of the truth of Molly's past threatens to tear their newly formed family apart...
