Since I Fell for You by Ann Roth

Book 1 in the Saddlers Prairie series

Leave the Past Behind

That’s life lesson number one for Jenny Wyler. Which is why she’s sequestered in the middle of rural Montana teaching in a one-room schoolhouse. Saddlers Prairie is good and far from the ex-fiancé who ran when he discovered the truth about her family. And from now on, Jenny will keep silent about her past.

But for Abby Dawson, a kindergartner in Jenny’s class, silence isn’t a choice. Not only shy, the little girl may be mute, and her father, Adam Dawson, needs Jenny’s help. Determined to give the child a voice, the pair work together while denying their powerful attraction. What could a cattle rancher and big-city teacher have in common anyway? Besides their love of a five-year-old girl. And the damaging secrets they are both hiding… secrets that are bound to leak out.

“This story has so much heart. It made me laugh, cry, rejoice, and swoon-sometimes all at the same time. “– Amazon reviewer
