Lawman in Disguise (Brides of Simpson Creek)
The Lawman's Secret When her son discovers an injured outlaw in their barn, the mysterious stranger instantly turns widow Daisy Henderson's world upside down. But Daisy senses Thorn Dawson's a good man…and there's more to his story than he can tell her. So she can't turn him away before he heals, even if she's falling for him—something she swore she'd never do again after her husband died. An undercover lawman, Thorn never lets himself get too close to anyone. But that's before he meets single mother Daisy and her spirited son. Now Thorn has to protect them from the Griggs gang—a gang that's come to accept him as one of their own. And if he can't keep up the charade, the woman of his dreams might just pay the price.
The way a child is valued (or not valued) by his parents can have lasting effects throughout a person's lifetime. But God loves us no matter how our parents felt about us.
Why the author wrote this book:
This book is part of a series for Love Inspired Historicals called "Brides of Simpson Creek." I enjoy books about lawmen going undercover and wanted to write one even though that term had not been coined yet.
