In her fiftieth novel, New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey takes her readers on a sensual, romantic adventure through the American West. Some young ladies marry for money and social standing, a few lucky ones marry for love--but Tiffany Warren is marrying to end a feud. Honoring her mother's promise, Tiffany reluctantly travels west to meet her estranged father and his enemy's eldest son, rancher Hunter Callahan. Once the Warrens and the Callahans are united by marriage, both clans will stop squabbling over a disputed strip of land. In the chaos of a train robbery Tiffany seizes a golden opportunity: By assuming the identity of her father's new housekeeper she can live with the father she never knew and assess his true character, as well as that of the neighboring cowboy to whom she is betrothed. But, too late, Tiffany discovers that the rivalry between the Warrens and the Callahans has escalated when the Callahans steal the Warrens' housekeeper as soon as she steps off the train! Now, Tiffany, who is pretending to be Jennifer Fleming, finds herself living in the enemy camp, under the same roof as her fianc . All too soon she learns her intended is a handsome, sweet talking charmer whom she has to fight off because he can't keep his eyes--or his hands--off Jennifer. After Tiffany's charade is exposed she refuses to marry Hunter to end the feud. As Hunter goes about claiming his rightful bride-to-be, he knows that although he loves two women--proper, elegant Tiffany as well as spunky, passionate Jennifer--he has only one heart to win.

This is the story of two feuding ranching families - the Warrens and the Callahans - (with long and checkered pasts together) that try to set aside their feud by marrying their children to each other. The only problem is that they forgot to ask their children; maybe it was because their children were still infants.
Mr. and Mrs. Warren separated not long after that; Rose returning to New York City while her husband stayed on his Montana ranch. The daughter, Tiffany, went with her mother and the boys stayed with their father. Mrs. Warren never told her husband why she was leaving. They have now been apart 15 years, though they never divorced.
When Tiffany turns 18, her mother tells her about her long-term engagement to a man she's never met. She's finally told about the generation's long feud. Rose also tells her that her father insists she come to Montana (for the first time since she left as a toddler) for 2 months to meet her betrothed and spend time with her father.
Tiff is not a ?happy camper? but agrees to the trip, so she can call off the engagement. She's not so happy about seeing her father either; she's spent long years wounded by his seeming indifference (he's never come to see her, although the 3 sons have come to NYC several times).
Just after she arrives, Tiffany is accosted by 2 of the Callahan men who think she is the housekeeper/cook the Warrens hired. Tiffany plays along with them and agrees to the job so she can see who Hunter Callahan really is. She's worried that she will not get a true picture if he knows her real name.
The first thing Tiff learns is that Hunter is a handsome flirt. She also learns that he is a hard worker and dedicated to his family. Before long, Tiff finds that he's no more excited about the engagement/marriage to an unknown than she is.
For me, there were too many ?literary devices? used; the reason Mrs. Warren left her husband bordered on hokey. The relationship between Tiffany and Hunter seemed ?without heart,? although their dialog was interesting.
