For The Record
Ozark Mountain Romance book 3
by Regina Jennings
-From the back cover-
Rather Than Wait for a Hero,
She Decided to Create One
Betsy Huckabee has big-city dreams, but nobody outside of tiny Pine Gap, Missouri, seems interested in the articles she writes for her uncle's newspaper. Her hopes for independence may be crushed, until the best idea she's ever had comes riding into town.
Deputy Joel Puckett didn't want to leave Texas, but unfair circumstances have made moving to Pine Gap his only shot at keeping a badge. Worse, this small town has big problems, and masked marauders have become too comfortable taking justice into their own hands. He needs to make clear that he's the law in this town – and that job is made more difficult with a nosy reporter who seems to follow him everywhere he goes.
The hero Betsy creates to be the star in a serial for the ladies' pages is based on the dashing deputy, but he's definitely fictional. And since the pieces only run in newspapers far away, no one will ever know. But the more time she spends with Deputy Puckett, the more she appreciates the real hero – and the more she realizes what her ambition could cost him.
He isn't quite the hero she expected...

In many ways For The Record is a coming-of-age story, Betsy is determined to make a financial go of things to ease the burden on her family but she's also a little naive and starry-eyed. But as she and Joel butt heads and cross words she begins to grow up beyond the silly notion of a handsome prince on a white charger and to fall in love with a very real, and sometimes flawed, man.
