A Bargain to Keep: #0.5 Home to Osceola
Romance / 47 views
They had been thrust into a bargain beyond their control—
How can they endure two full weeks in one another’s presence?
Jeanne McAllister always seems to be causing accidents, and she’s never been more aware of it than when a mishap in the Columbus Hotel lands her in the courtroom. And worst of all, the lawman she’s offended doesn’t seem too eager to extend forgiveness.
His trip to Columbus was supposed to be uneventful, but instead, Sheriff Ethan Becker finds himself confronted with all manner of inconvenience, the biggest of which is the pretty little brunette who has thrown his life into chaos. He can’t deny the troubled feelings that linger from his wife’s death—but honestly. That gave the judge no right to rearrange his life for him.
Duty had driven Ethan and Jeanne to commit to Judge Pratt’s bargain, but prejudice is blinding, hindering them from seeing one another’s value. As the countdown nears its end, escape from the bargain they’ve made could be what they need—or is it?
