When Cade Lawson sent for his mail order bride, Maggie O'Malley, he didn't know what to expect.

He prayed Maggie was the answer to his prayers and that this holiday season would be a happy one for them all.
Maggie was anxious about becoming a mail order bride, marrying a man she'd never met, but once she laid eyes on Cade and his twin sons, she knew she found the husband and family she prayed for. She just hoped her new husband didn't mind her being headstrong and bossy, a trait her pa always told her a man wouldn't take kindly to.
