Laura and the Railroad Baron
Laura Elizabeth Woodbury, heir to a Montana cattle ranch, has just lost her father.

Matt’s been hired to head up a team of railroad workers replacing damaged railroad tacks across Montana and to find a decent man to marry Laura. Matt is completely unprepared for the headstrong, willful blond and soon finds himself in love with her. Laura feels the same way about Matt—until she learns his secret that will change her life completely.
