About the Author
How did Sandra Field change from being a science graduate working on metal-induced rancidity of cod fillets at the Fisheries Research Board to being the author of over 50 Mills & Boon novels? When her husband joined the armed forces as a chaplain, they moved three times in the first 18 months. The last move was to Prince Edward Island. By then her children were in school; she couldn't get a job; and at the local bridge club, she kept forgetting not to trump her partner's ace.
However, Sandra had always loved to read, fascinated by the lure of being drawn into the other world of the story. So one day she bought a dozen Mills & Boon novels, read and analysed them, then sat down and wrote one (she believes she's the first North American to write for Mills & Boon Tender Romance).
Her first book, typed with four fingers, was published as To Trust My Love; her pseudonym was an attempt to prevent the congregation from finding out what the chaplain's wife was up to in her spare time.
She's been very fortunate for years to be able to combine a love of travel (particularly to the north - she doesn't do heat well) with her writing, by describing settings that most people will probably never visit. And there's always the challenge of making the heroine s long underwear sound romantic.
She's lived most of her life in the Maritimes of Canada, within reach of the sea. Kayaking and canoeing, hiking and gardening, listening to music and reading are all sources of great pleasure. But best of all are good friends, some going back to high-school days, and her family. She has a beautiful daughter-in-law and the two most delightful, handsome, and intelligent grandchildren in the world (of course!).

Judd wants to thank the person who saved his daughter, and thinks he got in the wrong room when he sees a woman with red hair laying on a bed. He did not, but something about her seems familiar. He looks at her chart and realizes why, she is his ex-wifes cousin Lise.
Lise does not like Judd, but cannot forget that when she was a teenager she had a huge crush on her cousins husband.
Several days after the fire Judd comes to visit Lise. Emmy had been having nightmares about the fire and was wondering if she could come to talk to Emmy. Lise does this and helps Emmy by showing her the firefighting gear.
Several days later Judd and Emmy are set to go on a vacation and Judd wants Lise to go with them. At first Lise does not want to go, but she sees a green dress that Judd bought and decides to go. During the trip the chemistry between Judd and Lise intensifies and the last night on the island Lise and Judd end up making love.
They return to Montreal and Judd convinces Lise to become Emmy's nanny. The night before Lise is set to move into the Harwood mansion she realizes that she is late and that she could be pregnant. Over the next several weeks she tries to hide her condition from Judd and Emmy. Then things get more interesting when Angeline (Lise's cousin/Emmy's mom) comes back to Montreal with the intention of getting Judd back.

This was a nice change. Instead of the H having preconceived notions and ideas about the h, it is the other way around. Lise believes that Judd had cheated on her cousin Angeline. Which is kind of stupid of her to believe anyways because both her aunt and her cousin seem selfish and self absorbed. They never seemed to care about Lise, unless it got them something and in fact that aunt had commented when Lise was younger that it was a shame that she would never be a beauty like Angeline. But of course Lise believes Angeline until she gets to know Judd whom she had a crush on when she was thirteen and he was marrying her cousin.
This was a nice, sweet love story with a believable HEA.
