On the same day, Sean Wallace's mother died and his fiancie dumped him. He vowed he'd never love again. Years later he found what he thought was the perfect trophy wife and is on the verge of asking her to marry him when he meets a beautiful, sharp-witted woman named Maggie.

Widow Maggie Garrison has three nearly grown children when she meets rugged, sexy Sean. He makes her feel things she hasn't felt since her husband died but Sean is almost 14 years younger.

He pursues the attraction to see where it might lead and makes a surprise visit to her guest ranch. What he finds there astounds him and makes him yearn for things he might not be able to have.

Maggie is a feisty character who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it. Judy Mays has written a marvelous book with strong characters and, of course, the requisite happy ending! (May, 260 pp., $11.95)
