Skilled Sherryl Woods completes the month with UNEXPECTED MOMMY (3). When a powerful rancher lays claim to half of his uncle's holdings, his plans are thwarted by a fiery-tempered teacher. Soon, however, he's willing to drop his claim to the land in exchange for the woman who has stolen his heart. Although the conflict resolution comes early, Ms. Woods keeps reader interest high with multi-dimensional characters, snappy bantering and strong emotional development.
