Letter Perfect (California Historical Series #1)
1850s – California
If her own two feet don’t end up tripping her, Ruth Caldwell’s mouth is likely to get her into equal trouble. But Ruth has the best of intentions. Truly. It’s just that her attempts to live up to her mother’s expectations of how a lady should act have often yielded…well, less than impressive results.
Josh McCain is speechless when he sees Ruth step off the stage in Folsom, California. Sure, it looks like she’s been sleeping in her gown for the past week, but with a crown of riotous curls and those deep green eyes, she’s certainly the most beautiful woman he’s ever met.
But Josh soon finds the sparks that fly upon Ruth’s arrival aren’t the romantic type. With her legitimate claims to an inheritance, the Broken P Ranch’s future is suddenly precarious. And when Ruth’s “accidents”–going beyond even her normal bumbling ways–seem to take a sinister turn, Josh must decide where his loyalties lie.
