Description

From the bestselling author of It Happened at the Fair comes a historical love story about a lady doctor and a Texas Ranger who meet at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair.

Saddled with a mans name, the captivating Billy Jack Tate makes no apologies for taking on a mans profession. As a doctor at the 1893 Chicago Worlds Fair, she is one step closer to having her very own medical practiceuntil Hunter Scott asks her to give it all up to become his wife.

Hunter is one of the elite. A Texas Ranger and Worlds Fair guard specifically chosen for his height, physique, character, and skill. Hailed as the toughest man west of any place east, he has no patience for big cities and women who think they belong anywhere but home

Despite their difference of opinion on the role of women, Hunter and Billy find a growing attraction between themuntil Hunter discovers an abandoned baby in the corner of a White City exhibit. He and Billy team up to make sure this foundling isnt left in the slums of Chicago with only the flea-riddled, garbage-infested streets for a playground. As they fight for the underprivileged children in the Nineteenth Ward, an entire Playground Movement is birthed. But when the Fair comes to an end, one of them will have to give up their dream.

Will Billy exchange her doctors shingle for the domesticated role of a southern wife, or will Hunter abandon the wide open spaces of home for a life in the gray city, a woman who insists on being the wage earner, and a group of ragamuffins who need more than a playground for breathing space?
