Gideon’s Vow by Samantha Thomas (epub) Harts of the West Book 3
He needs help with his young daughter. She needs a place to hide.
With only his brothers to assist him in raising his unruly daughter, widower Gideon Hart is realizing they’re in need of some feminine influence. He swore he’d never let another woman into his life, but a governess is an employee, not a real woman. Right?
Madeline Sheppard is desperate to protect her little brother from the cruelty of their uncle’s guardianship. After fleeing the city and ending up in the tiny town of Autumn Springs, she takes the first decent job she is offered; governess to a precocious little girl. Tucked away at the Double H Ranch might keep her brother safe, but Madeline isn’t sure she’ll survive working for the world’s grumpiest cowboy.
