The Rancher's Temporary Engagement by Stacy HenrieUndercover Fiancée

The Pinkerton agent that Edward Kent hired is intelligent, capable—and unexpectedly female! Though shocked to learn that Maggy Worthing will be investigating the threats to his Wyoming horse ranch, Edward needs to find the culprit. And if that means a temporary engagement to give Maggy a cover story, he’ll play along with the feisty detective.

Maggy always gets her man—at least when it comes to solving crimes. The young widow refuses to marry again and land under another husband’s thumb. Unmasking Edward’s enemies will earn her a longed-for promotion…but the heart has its own mysteries. Could working together with the handsome English aristocrat spark a real and loving partnership?

“Are you always this obstinate, Mr. Kent?” Maggy asked, jerking his thoughts back to the unpleasant scene unfolding on his porch.

She was accusing him of obstinacy? He climbed the steps in an effort to keep her from barging her way inside. An action he wouldn’t put past her. “Are you always this persistent?”

Her eyes brightened with amusement. “I wouldn’t be one of Pinkertons best detectives if I weren’t.”

Running a hand over his face, Edward blew out an exasperated sigh. Clearly he wasn’t going to convince this woman that he was done employing detectives. But if she were to prove her own inabilities…

“I will make a deal with you. You find some clue your predecessor did not, and I will hire you as my new detective.”

Instead of looking defeated, a thrum of energy seemed to radiate from her. “How long do I have?”

“Until this evening.” Then he’d kindly provide her with supper and a room for the night before sending her back to Colorado.

Undeterred, she stuck out her hand. “Agreed.”

“Very well. Welcome to the Running W,” Edward said, shaking her hand. He even managed a polite smile. After all, he felt quite confident she wouldn’t be unpacking. This would be Maggy’s first and final day on the ranch.
