A Match for Maude
Charles is only supposed to guard Maude and her sisters to their destination. He should have guarded his heart. Still raw with grief after their father’s funeral, Maude Lancaster and her two younger sisters refuse an ultimatum from their ill-intentioned uncle. Since it’s a new century and women can travel unchaperoned, they decide to flee out west to live with their older brother. Their aunt hires Charles for protection, but Maude soon finds that her greatest danger is in losing her heart to a man she may never see again.
Everyone’s fought in a battle. Some just don’t talk about it. Emmaline Bradshaw’s trading her cubicle for the studs of a fixer-upper she’s agreed to tackle for a sweet couple who live out-of-state. The challenge arises when she discovers a hole in the contract; one that pricks her pride and requires help outside of herself. Ashton Summers maintains the grounds of the family properties and can’t believe his parents let an out-of-towner take on the timeworn rental near his house. The squad leader in him knows best, and surprises have never ended well for him.
