Matilda Jane Anderson drives a brand new 1917 Model T with Sweet Tilly painted on the heavy metal plate covering the radiator. Tilly doesn't care what people say. Well, until she finds herself put behind bars by a new sheriff determined to confiscate her automobile and her property.
Sheriff Rayford Sloan cleans up boom towns. He drifts in and works at getting rid of moonshiners, putting brothels out of business, generally making a place where men folks can bring their families. He drifts out when his job is done. Tilly Anderson gets under his skin from the beginning. He can't prove she's a moonshiner, but his gut feeling keeps telling him she most certainly is. He promises he'll shadow her every move and he'll own that moonshiner's car before he leaves town. That's if he ever leaves.

Award-winning author, Carolyn Brown, has written over thirty books. She and her husband, Charles, live in Texas and Oklahoma.
Morning Glory is the first in the Drifters and Dreamers series.From Publishers Weekly:
In 1920s Healdron, Okla., Tilly Anderson is an anomaly: she doesn't want a husband but she would like to have a baby. Tilly is also a third-generation moonshiner with a steady income, thanks to Prohibition. Rayford Sloan is the new sheriff, come to Healdron to shut down the stills. Like Tilly, he is serious about his work. They meet when Rayford jails Tilly after suspecting her of running 'shine. Tilly's cousin intervenes, and she's free the next morning, but the sheriff vows to follow her everywhere until he gets the proof he needs to shut her down. He makes good on his promise, and Tilly leads him on more than one wild goose chase, managing to deliver the 'shine while she's got him looking the other way. But he turns out to be more of a challenge than she expected. The attraction between them is immediate and strong, though Tilly and Ford spend most of the novel telling themselves that the relationship would be disastrous. The happy resolution isn't any surprise, but a few small twists elevate this sentimental and conservative romance a notch or two. (Oct.)
