A Woman's Touch
Cast back in time to 1896 Montana by a medicine man and a birthday wish, beautiful and headstrong Courtney James discovers a handsome cowboy with a wounded soul. Can she find a way to fill the void in the rugged rancher’s home and heart? Is love strong enough to keep her in his time or will she be forced to return to her own? More
All her life Courtney James felt like something was missing, that she didn’t belong somehow. But she never expected to find herself cast back through time a hundred years or more by the manipulations of an ancient medicine man and the secret forces of the Native American’s stone circle. And, in that bygone era, she certainly didn’t expect to find the one man who, it seemed, was able to stir something deep inside her with his reluctant touch and his sweet kiss.
Matt Ward liked his life simple, uncomplicated, predictable. So, when his young step-brother Peter wishes for a woman for his birthday and one suddenly appears on the ridge above their home, Matt is determined to fight his attraction to her. He suspects that adding a woman into the mix at the ranch is going to cause nothing but trouble. Especially a woman who acts as strange as this one. Her tight jeans, her unbound hair and her habit of sleeping past dawn make her unlike any of the women he has known. And how did she get here? And why does she refuse to say? Yes, there is something mighty suspicious about Miss Courtney James. Suspicious enough to give Matt pause every time he looks at her despite his body’s traitorous reactions.
Travis Ward, Matt’s brother, has no such reservations. He’s delighted with the new woman in their life and the woman’s touch she brings to the house. He’s determined to try to keep her at the ranch, determined enough to propose marriage. But, it’s young Peter who senses the sparks that are flashing between Courtney and Matt. And he does everything in his power to force the two together. Surely, if they spend enough time in each other’s company they will see how right they are for each other.
But Matt is haunted by memories and tragic events in his life have made him hardened his heart against love. Try as he might though, he can’t seem to ignore the attraction that draws him time and again to the dark-haired beauty with the mysterious past.
Can Courtney’s love break through the icy wall he has built around his heart and fill the void in this rugged rancher’s home and heart? Or will she be forced to return to her own time? Will her love be enough to force Matt to admit his feelings before it is too late?
