Rancher Daddy - Ann Roth (HAR #1390 - Feb 2012)

Series: Saddlers Prairie (Book 1)

Leave the past behind

That's life lesson number one for Jenny Wyler. Which is why she's sequestered in the middle of rural Montana teaching in a one-room schoolhouse. Saddlers Prairie is good and far from the ex-fiance who ran when he discovered the truth about her family. And from now on, Jenny would keep silent about her past.

But for Abby Dawson, a kindergartner in Jenny's class, silence isn't a choice. Not only shy, the little girl may be mute, and her father, Adam, needs Jenny's help. Determined to give the child a voice, the pair work together while denying their powerful attraction. Besides, what could a cattle rancher and big-city teacher have in common anyway? Besides their love of a five-year-old girl. And the damaging secrets they are both hiding...secrets that are bound to leak out.

Good book.  Both Jenny and Adam had buried their pasts and refused to think or talk about them.  It took them a long time to realize that they couldn't move forward until they put the past to rest.  I did like how much Adam cared for Abby and wanted to help her.  He was frustrated because he didn't know how.  When Jenny came to town and had ideas to help, it was good, but Adam didn't want to have feelings for her.  Jenny also fought her feelings because she had been hurt in the past.  I loved the people of Saddler's Prairie and how much they cared for each other.
