Just Maggie *


October 1992

All Alone

Maggie Carson had always yearned for what others took for granted-the warmth of family, a place to call home… and love. When she found an old letter and discovered the truth about her background, her wistful childhood dream seemed about to be fulfilled.

Cowboy Tyler Murdock was suspicious the minute he laid eyes on the pretty stranger. She claimed she’d come to Texas to meet her long-lost grandparents, but the elderly Carsons had suffered enough heartache. Tyler wasn’t going to let Maggie hurt them the way her bitter, foolish mother had.

The more Tyler made Maggie feel unwelcome at the Murdock Ranch, the more determined she was to stay. She was determined to prove that she wasn’t her mother’s daughter – she was a woman worthy of becoming Tyler Murdock’s wife.

Though the birth certificate named him as father, another man was responsible!

For a revengeful schemer had stolen Matt’s identity–and now an innocent baby–and her beautiful guardian–were at risk. To protect them, Matt kept “mother” and child within arm’s reach…but his heart stayed miles away, where it was safe from the flickering warmth in Tara’s touch. And though his name had been tarnished by an imposter, Matt would never trade his identity as “confirmed bachelor” for “husband and father”… would he?
