His plan was simple--convince Caroline Hudson to take in his children as wards. Widower Tyrone Justice is stunned when the Nantucket schoolmistress requests a wedding instead! But really, what could be simpler than a marriage of convenience? Tyrone's children will have stability, Caroline will have security...and neither Tyrone nor Caroline will have to risk their hearts once more. Bruised by past loves and losses, neither is ready to take that chance again. Unless a potentially deadly disaster makes them see the truth. Happiness lies within reach--if they'll take a chance on the unplanned gift of love.

This is the last in a series of books set in Nantucket in the 19th century -- all were a pure joy to research and write. I hope you'll pick up the others: AN UNEXPECTED SUITOR, SEASIDE CINDERELLA and its sequel, GIFT FROM THE SEA.About the Author:
Anna Schmidt is the award-winning author of over twenty works of historical and contemporary fiction. Her next[J1] work - a novella entitled A PRAIRIE FAMILY CHRISTMAS is available now. Awarded four stars by Romantic Times, the reviewer notes that "Schmidt is not timid about presenting her characters with their faults laid bare for the reader to see."
Currently Anna is [J2] working on a trilogy of contemporary novels about Mennonites (A STRANGER'S GIFT will be out next fall) living in the community of Pinecraft just outside Anna's winter home of Sarasota, Florida.

Critics have called Anna 'a natural writer, spinning tales reminiscent of old favorites like Miracle on 34th Street.' Her characters have been called 'realistic' and 'endearing' and one reviewer raved, "I love Anna Schmidt's style of writing!"
