Rumor Has It-Maureen Child

Rumor Has It

ISBN: 9780373732531

Seven years ago, Amanda Altman left Royal, Texas, breaking the heart of Nathan Battle. She returned two weeks ago to help at her family’s Royal Diner while Nathan, now the sheriff, has avoided her as if she has a contagious disease. He even stopped getting his coffee at the diner and instead gets it at the gas station that obviously uses fuel instead of water.

Feeling déjà vu, Nathan hates being the subject of town gossip again as he was when she left and he fled soon after to the police academy in Houston. Nathan decides the only way to move on is to seduce the woman who still has him tied in knots. Amanda initially rejects his efforts, but cannot hold out very long as she wants the sheriff as much as he desires her. However, she feels déjà vu too when she becomes pregnant, but Amanda prays for a different ending from the miscarriage she suffered seven years ago.

The first Texas Cattleman’s Club: The Missing Mogul contemporary romance is a warm second chance at love family affair (Amanda’s angry sister finds love too) with a bit of a mystery (Nathan’s friend Alex’s disappearance). Readers will enjoy this royal rumble as two stubborn individuals fuss, fight and dance in the moonlight.
