Winner 1999 Golden Leaf for Best First Book
At the stroke of midnight on December 31, 1898 Sheriff Corby Hillhouse makes this heartfelt
"Please send me a woman my love won't kill..."
Although he doesn't realize it, Corby's wish is granted in the form of Laura Bennett, the 20th
century interior designer he finds lying unconscious behind his cousin's house.
Like Corby, Laura harbors many regrets but when she's hired as nanny to Corby's motherless
daughter, she finds the happiness she'd been searching for.
However, before Laura can enjoy her "new life" she has to get past Corby's suspicious nature,
his spiteful ex-lover, and the vengeful man who kidnaps his daughter, Sabrina.
