Diana Brennan came west on the orphan train and was given a home with a loving couple who cherished and spoiled her. At 17, she fell hard for Tyson Applegate, the son of a wealthy mine owner. After a whirlwind courtship and marriage, Tyson took off for adventures around the world, including fighting with the Rough Riders in Cuba. Receiving no word from him in years, Diana’s infatuation with her dashing husband died an ugly death, and she is ready to move past the old pain and marry again, just as soon as Tyson is declared legally dead.
But when Tyson returns, claiming to be a changed man, he wants to reunite with his wife and run for the senate. While Diana suspects the election is his real reason for wanting her by his side, she agrees to maintain his home and to campaign with him, but when it is over, win or lose, she wants her freedom.
He agrees with one condition—she must give him a chance to change her mind about him.

Another great book by Robin Lee Hatcher. In this book we meet Diana Brennan Applegate, she is an Irish immigrant, and ended up on the orphan train. Diana ended up with a good family, but married young when dashing and wealthy Tyson Applegate sweeps her off her feet. He on the other hand has married her to get his inheritance. In the end, thinking only of himself, Tyson takes off and travels around the world. In his travels he finally ends up in Cuba, he is serving with Theodore Roosevelt, and the Rough Riders.
When Diana has word her husband is missing and presumed dead, she is angry with him. As the years past she moves on with her life, and the day before she can finally have Tyson declared dead, she is at a party to have her engagement announced. You can probably guess, but Tyson shows up at the party.
He claims to Diana he is a changed man, and now follows his God and Savior. Of course she does not believe him, she is still so hurt from her abandonment. Tyson offers her a deal, if she will come and be his wife, in all ways but one, he will let her leave in November, and provide an allowance and home for her. He wants to run for US Senate, and needs her. Of course, he hopes that being with him will bring her back to him.
We find her setting up the household and having dinner parties, and doing her job, but can she control her heart? Will Tyson, and her staff, be able to put up with all the strays she brings home? We are ready for a variety of animals and people!! She has such a big heart for those in need.
Will Tyson be able to convince her that he has changed, what about his controlling Father? There are a lot surprises to be found here. It is one fast paced, and interesting read, and you won't be able to put it down.
