Greenhorn Heart

This was a very romantic story about Jolene who has to raise her nine-month year old sister after tragedy strikes and handsome but grief-stricken cowboy Seth. With nowhere to go Jolene ends up at Kristen’s house, only to find out it’s not Kristen’s house, she is not there, and will not be back for a week. Her brother Seth, however, is there and his presence is immense. While there is an attraction between the two, Seth is ready to drive her to the closest hotel…and Jolene is ready to go. A phone call to Kristen changes everything…and Jolene will be staying with Seth until Kristen gets back into town. The only problem now is Jolene’s aunt who wants custody of the baby (Dena). In a last effort to save Dena, Jolene gives Seth a proposition; money for marriage? Will he take her up on the offer?

Seth and Jolene make a cute couple. Jolene is sweet and innocent, while Seth is disillusioned with the world. Their relationship begins building from the moment Jolene enters the house and it never stops blossoming.

Book Blurb for Greenhorn Heart

At her dying mother's bedside, Jolene Norris promised that she would keep her baby sister safe from her money hungry aunt and uncle. Unfortunately, keeping that promise is proving a lot more difficult than Jolene thought, and she needs help. Her aunt is out to prove Jolene is unfit or at the very least unstable to take care of her sister, forcing Jolene to seek Seth Morgan's help. She needs his home, his land, and his name. Too bad he's as welcoming as the bulls he raises. Scared that she'll lose her sister, Jolene makes Seth a deal he can't refuse.

Seth doesn't have time to take care of a petite woman who is as green as her eyes or the small drooling complication on her hip. He doesn't do babies or marriage, not after his ex-wife killed herself and their three-year-old son. But he desperately needs the money Jolene offers him.

Together they arrange a marriage of convenience, which quickly becomes so much more.
