After the tragic murder of Cara McGregor’s mother and hanging of her father, her only choice is to become a mail-order bride to a widower in the Dakota territory. When she arrives, she’s thrust into taking care of three resistant children and a distant man.
James Cassidy doesn’t want a new wife, but he needs a mother for his children and helpmate around his farm. Since the jobs go hand-in-hand, he reluctantly takes out a mail-order advertisement to acquire what his family needs.
What neither of them expect is the attraction or the affection that develops between them. Their budding romance is interrupted, however, when Cara is arrested for a crime she didn’t commit. Will James find a way to save Cara? Will they decide their marriage is worth fighting for? And will this family find a way to have a happy life together?
