A marriage of necessity grows into a love worth fighting for in a historical romance offering a “vivid portrayal of 1880s mid-west America” (Daily Mail).
 
In 1887 Wyoming, widower Connor Maguire advertises for a wife to raise his young daughter, work the homestead, and—he hopes—bear him a son. And on paper, Ellen O’Sullivan appears to be everything Connor needs in a wife.
 
Although Connor tries his best to be as mannerly as possible under the circumstances, it soon becomes clear that Ellen may have been less than truthful about herself and her reasons for coming west—a fact that Connor considers a breach of their agreement he may not be able to forgive.
 
But as their personal feelings blur the boundaries of their deal—and they bear the hardships of the frontier side-by-side—they begin to wonder if their marriage could be a far more intimate arrangement . . .
 
“Engrossing. A thoroughly enjoyable read, full of romance and with enough treachery and intrigue to keep you rooting for Ellen until the last page.” —Historical Novels Review
