Publisher Comments:

New York City, 1909: A woman ahead of her time, Temperance O'Neil is happily married to her work — helping single mothers on the city streets — which she funds with her inheritance. When her disapproving stepfather, Angus McCairn, cuts off her income, an infuriated Temperance has no choice but to do as he commands: live, as a proper unmarried lady, in the family's home in Edinburgh. She soon strikes up a bargain with the elder McCairn to win her passage home by agreeing to √nd a wife for his nephew, James — a task few would dare undertake.

A brusque, strapping man, James McCairn has little use for the new "housekeeper" on his Highlands farm — though the place could surely use a woman's touch. But as she attempts to match James with his ideal mate, Temperance makes a surprising discovery: behind his gruff exterior is a kind, intelligent, caring soul. And his perfect match may surprise Temperance most of all....

Includes an excerpt from The Summerhouse, Jude Deveraux's splendid new novel!
