Courting Miss Hattie
Back cover: The news spread like brush fire through the whole country when widower Ancil Drayton annonced his intention to start courting Miss Hattie Colfax. She was certainly spirited and delightfull sweet natured, and she'd managed to run her family farm almost single handedly. But wasn't a twenty nine year old lady farmer too old a catch for a husband.
All his life handsome, black-haired Reed Tyler had worked Miss Hattie's farm--and dreamed of one day settling down on his own piece of land with the pretty young woman he'd sworn to marry. Hattie was someone he could tell his hopes and troubles to--someone he looked on as a sister. So he thought, until the idea of Ancil Drayton calling on her made him seethe. Until the night a brotherly peck became a scorching kiss . . . and Reed knew nothing would bank the blaze--and that his best friend was the only woman he would ever love.
