The first novel in a riveting Historical romance series. In Victorian era America members of the extraordinary Grayson family risk all to find love. 

A Mail Order Bride He Doesn’t Want—A Woman He Can’t Resist.

Nancy Mitchell refuses to marry the man her father chose for her. Her only escape from the dreadful arrangement is to find another husband quick—so she concocts a desperate plan and agrees to become a mail order bride. When a drastic change in circumstances dumps her into the arms of Hal Grayson, a handsome, grieving man who hates her family, she is forced to rethink her hastily made plan. Can her fierce resolve and inner strength help him piece his world together again even when her own begins to unravel?

A captivating, clean read, devoid of explicit raunchy scenes and filled rather with toe curling romance. Wendy weaves the story so clearly one can picture Nancy and Hal's home and fall in love with their simple, uncomplicated lifestyle. A heartwarming story of real, deep love, forgiveness and second chances amidst the reality of life!

Great book. But it seems like she loves her cat as much as her husband.
