Ruth's on a quest to find her daughter, who was kidnapped five years before. Ruth's private investigator is all but certain that ranch owner, Matt Kincaid's, adopted daughter is Ruth's child. But even though Ruth lands the job as nanny to Matt's six-year-old daughter, she must tread carefully. Matt's the maverick in a powerful family of lawyers and politicians and she can't predict what he or his family might do if the adoption's challenged. However, Ruth's carefully laid plans go awry when she finds herself falling in love with the man who might have stolen her child.

Ruth is a single mom who has been searching for her kidnapped daughter for 4 years. She would now be 6 years old and could be anywhere in the world.  Ruth hired a private investigator who had tracked her to Matt Kincaid who owns Kindaid Ranch.  Ruth applied for the job of nanny and got hired. She is thrilled to finally be able to get close enough to the little girl to figure out if she really is her missing daughter. I liked this book right from the start.  It did slow down toward the middle but had a really good ending - though unbelievable. I liked the romance between Ruth and Matt.  Ruth tried to keep her distance because she planned on taking Annie away with her if she turned out to be her daughter and she knew Matt would suffer. I really liked the characters Matt and Ruth.  Annie was a bit of a brat but that added interest to the story.  Ruth had thought of nothing else except finding her daughter for the past 4 years so she looked terrible.  Matt's first impression of Ruth was that she was a plain, mousy woman which is just what he wanted in a nanny. He is divorced now but his ranch and daughter are the most important things in his life. He doesn't have any idea that Ruth is not a real nanny and had such a tragic secret.  Justified Deception had an intriguing story line starting with a young child being kidnapped and her mother searching for her for years. I did find that part amazing. Ruth learning to ride, as well as she apparently did, in one day is not possible so it made me question other events in the book. But I did enjoy it and recommend it.

I loved the characters in this story, especially the interaction between the heroine and the little girl. And the hero was a yummy cowboy! Love those cowboys!
