Not a Family Man (The Wedding Series, Book 8, prequel to The Forgotten Prince)
Prequel to THE FORGOTTEN PRINCE
Can a Cowboy and a City Girl Find Common Ground --
and Uncommon Love?
To Wyoming ranch foreman Tucker Gates, the only good owner for the Double Bar X was an absentee one. That's how it had been for ten years. And then came divorcee Jenny Peters. Bringing her two whining, spoiled kids and her city-bred fairy-tale views of life – and love – in the West.
Jenny wasn't going to let Tucker scare her away from the new life she wanted to build for herself and her kids. No matter that he could be as hard as the mountains around them. No matter that she found totally unexpected comfort from his rough strength.
But what next? Because Tucker Gates was a lot of things, but he was absolutely clear that he was not a family man.
