2003 (July), A Man to Call My Own

Amanda and Marian Laton are identical twins but they are as different as night and day. Amanda is beautiful but nasty, and Marian is nice but plain – purposely so to avoid provoking her spiteful twin’s jealousy. When their wealthy father suddenly dies, the two gently reared New England heiresses are sent to live with their aunt on a sprawling Texas ranch.

There the twins meet Chad Kinkaid, the cowboy son of a neighboring rancher. Marian is fascinated by Chad’s rugged good looks and his sheer masculinity, but she knows that like every other man she and her twin have met, he will pursue Amanda, not her. Chad is indeed beguiled by Amanda’s beauty, but soon he begins to see beyond Marian’s carefully constructed dowdy façade. Unlike the tame gentlemen back East, after witnessing Marian’s taste for adventure, her sense of humor and bravery in the face of danger, Chad finds himself wanting her. But how can he, a man who’s just a cowboy without fancy airs or urbane charm, convince her she’s the only woman for him?

In a story that surprises and delights, Johanna Lindsey skillfully charts the intoxicating course of first love, and all of love’s attendant twists and turns, that ends with a spunky woman’s coming into her own and finding a man she can call her own. With powerful emotions and sensuality, incomparable humor, and great insight into the ways of the human heart, Lindsey delivers one of her most compelling novels, which readers won’t want to put down until the final page is turned.

  1. What a beautiful story. I bought the book a month ago, and just started reading it a few days ago, and could not put it down. This is for sure on my top JL favorate list. I would so love to read more on this book. I would love another story on all the characters, picking up from where it ended. Loved it.
