Boston High-Society Poses Obstacle to Love and Family in An Improper Situation, by Sydney Jane Baily

Boston lawyer Reed Malloy is on a mission–deliver two orphans to one Charlotte Sanborn of Spring City, Colorado. He's not prepared for Charlotte's refusal to raise her own kin, or for the fire her irresistible beauty ignites within him.

With her chestnut hair and striking green eyes, Charlotte could be the catch of Spring City. Instead, she lives in solitude and wears her independence like a suit of armor.

But as the children challenge Charlotte's vow to never again risk heartbreak, and memories of brief moments with Reed tantalize her nights, Charlotte's greatest fear is realized: a letter from her aunt demanding the return of the children.

Desperate to keep the children she's come to love, Charlotte endures the 2000 miles to Boston in search of Reed only to discover that Boston's glittering high society intends to keep them apart.

Would you abandon the woman you love for your own indulgence?

Beth Meridian has returned home, hoping to leave her sordid past behind her and settle into a quiet life. When her childhood friend, Hannah Raeburn, offers her a place to stay, Beth knows it won't be long until she runs into Hannah's brother, Daniel. What she doesn't expect is for him to reignite feelings deep in her heart, reminding her of the kiss they shared before she left town.

Daniel Raeburn's past is scandalous, his sinful indulgences allowing him more wealth than he could ever need. Still, he wants more, and his gluttonous appetite for wealth and women leads him to buy into a partnership at the local hellfire club.

When Hannah goes missing, Beth and Daniel follow her trail through the Australian outback. Witnessing the womanizer Daniel is, Beth flees on a cattle train headed north. Desperate to explain his actions, Daniel follows her.

Arriving in the small town of Jarvisfield, Daniel is shocked to learn that Beth is now the owner of the largest cattle company in the area. He's even more shocked to discover that the preacher controlling the town, and stealing from the townspeople, is his once business partner William Maxon. He's convinced this man is also responsible for his sister's disappearance. When he learns William has Beth picked out as his next victim, Daniel knows he must do whatever it takes to make her listen to the truth. But she has no interest in hearing anything he has to say.

Faced with losing the two women he loves, Daniel is forced to choose between their freedom and the possessions and wealth he has hoarded over the years. But even if he gives it all up, he still might lose everything.
