Inspirational Historical Romance
Paperback & ebook, 288 pages

February 1st 2018 by Love Inspired Historical

Undercover Fiancée

The Pinkerton agent that Edward Kent hired is intelligent, capable—and unexpectedly female! Though shocked to learn that Maggy Worthing will be investigating the threats to his Wyoming horse ranch, Edward needs to find the culprit. And if that means a temporary engagement to give Maggy a cover story, he’ll play along with the feisty detective.

Maggy always gets her man—at least when it comes to solving crimes. The young widow refuses to marry again and land under another husband’s thumb. Unmasking Edward’s enemies will earn her a longed-for promotion…but the heart has its own mysteries. Could working together with the handsome English aristocrat spark a real and loving partnership?




“Fine.” Edward let his shoulders slump. “I won’t get into fisticuffs with Howe.”

One corner of Maggy’s mouth lifted. “You would get into fisticuffs for me?”

He sensed she meant it in a teasing way, but he couldn’t bring himself to jest about something he felt strongly about. “Yes, Maggy.” He placed his hand over hers where it still rested near his heart—just as it had the other day when they’d stumbled into each other. “I would.”

Her eyes widened as she regarded him. A longing to show her precisely how he felt about her—with a firm kiss—filled him to near distraction. But it wouldn’t be right. She wasn’t staying and he wasn’t sure there was much left of his heart to give to anyone.

“Let’s head home then,” he said after clearing his throat.

Maggy nodded, her earlier fervor replaced by somber determination.

After they were both settled in the buggy and he drove away from the inn, he kept hearing her question repeat inside his head—you would get into fisticuffs for me?

He’d been honest when he’d told her that he would. It wasn’t solely about protecting her honor from boars like Howe either. He would protect Maggy, too, as long as she would let him.
