Reese Tait is a single rancher with two small children and a run-down ranch to care for — and he’s running out of time.
Aileen Warrick is a young widow with debts to pay and nowhere to turn — she’s also running out of time.
Valerie Tait is the frustrated, lovelorn bride who brings them together.
When Valerie posts a Mail Order Bride advertisement on her cousin Reese’s behalf, he’s anything but pleased. The last thing he wants is for some strange woman to come into his life and turn everything upside down. But Val’s about to be married and knows he needs someone – someone to care for his twin babies, and someone to take care of Reese himself!
Beautiful young widow Aileen answers the advert and finds far more than she bargained for at Three Cedars Ranch. A broken-down ranch with a broken-down owner, misunderstandings galore, and true love – none of which is quite what she was expecting.
