Then Came You by Jillian Hart
When Gil Blackburn finds beautiful Maebry O’Riley in need of assistance, it’s his duty to come to her aid–even if he’s only pretending to be her beau and rescuing her from the unwanted advances of Lawrence Latimer. Gil’s been sweet on Maebry ever since he stepped foot on the Rocking M Ranch, and his feelings are only getting stronger. When he looks at her, he sees forever. He doesn’t want to pretend to be her beau. He wants the real thing.
Maebry O’Riley wishes she wasn’t carrying a torch for handsome Gil. There’s something about him that makes her heart beat a lot faster. His good humor and manly, easy-going nature could capture her heart if she let it. He makes her long for a real future as his wife, but he is a dream that can never be hers. She isn’t free to love anyone, even a good man like Gil.
