To Kate Murphy, the luck of the Irish seems a cruel joke, and the gold at the end of the rainbow an impossible dream. Newly widowed, she is left alone in a town so small she has to take a job in the saloon in order to survive. When Jonathan Cantrell offers her a job as his housekeeper for himself and his two unruly sons, it feels like a Godsend.
Jonathan has the face of an angel and the devil’s own temper. But sweet Kate has a temper of her own and is more than a match for him. Living together in a small cabin on an isolated ranch their clash of wills gives way to an attraction neither of them expects nor wants. Then the past surfaces to tear them apart and create suspicions on both sides. Will their new-found love be strong enough to survive the secrets from the past?
