Evening StarLarge Print - 2008
She was sitting on the bench outside the drugstore waiting to go back to Arkansas when Tilly Anderson sat down beside her. In less than an hour, Addison found herself at the Evening Star ranch setting Tucker Anderson's broken leg and suturing the gash in his hand. Suddenly, she was offered the job of caring for him until he healed. Tending the cantankerous patient was better than going back to Arkansas with a deflated ego and shattered dreams.
Now, Tucker had his own ideas about women. He believed they should obey the male species - and rather than endure a lifetime with one like his cousins, Tilly and Clara, he'd be a bachelor until he reached the Pearly Gates of Heaven. Then he broke his leg and his cousins hired a female doctor to take care of him. He figured he'd died and gone straight to hell.
