About The Book:
When she finds herself unwed and pregnant, Nan answers an ad for a cook at a logging camp. Claiming to be a widow, she travels to North Creek, determined to learn how to cook before anyone notices her lack of skill.

Butler Cross expects an older woman, not the young and beautiful woman who brings out the wolf in all two hundred lumberjacks. Butler is determined to send her packing, but can’t help trying to discover the secret she’s hiding.

The Review:
Paige had no idea what she was in for, taking the job as camp cook for so many unmannered and uncouth men. Yet she’s determined to learn the skills needed in order to provide a home for her unborn child. An orphan boy, Danny and young worker, Billy are two of the many rich secondary characters in the story, aid her.

Butler is stubborn and ornery at first, two of the qualities needed to keep control over the worst of the loggers. Yet his patience with Paige will endear him to the reader even before he softens.

All in all, Belonging has the sweet romance, conflict, and a satisfying ending sure to please any historical romance fan.
