Mason Hall, Navy SEAL, knows all about
difficult assignments, but his current mission is one for the record books. Not
only must he find a wife—and get her pregnant—or forfeit the ranch his family
has prized for generations, he must also convince his three brothers to marry,
too—before the year is up. Who knew one city girl and three wayward brothers
could put up such a fight?
Regan Anderson can’t wait any longer to meet Mr. Right, so she’s
taken matters into her own hands. She’s quit her job, given up her nice
apartment and undergone all the preliminary appointments to prepare for
artificial insemination. Still, becoming a single mother is daunting, so when
she spots Mason’s Wife Wanted ad on the Internet one night, she’s ready for a
few laughs. She’s sure the ad must be fake, but when Mason answers back, she
soon finds herself wanting more than a long distance relationship.
If Mason can just keep her talking until he makes it home from
Afghanistan, he’s sure he can convince Regan he’s her man. But when he whisks
her off for a trial run in Chance Creek, they’re in for an unpleasant surprise.
The ranch is in ruins, the house has been stripped, and they’re going to have
to work day and night to beat Mason’s deadline to win it back.
Can two strangers pull together against all odds? Or is this
mission doomed to fail?
