ABBY MCCALLISTER is a skilled rancher and horse breeder who prefers a pair of britches to a corset. With the untimely death of the ranch foreman and other strange accidents happening all over the ranch, Abby faces her father’s decision to send her off to Denver to live with her aunt in high society and leaving her ranch—the only home she’s ever known—in the hands of a perfect stranger. When an unlikely bet with her father produces the threat of losing her place on her beloved SilverHawk ranch altogether, she is forced to find a husband. She sets out in her dead mother’s wedding dress, determined to prove her father wrong and to clutch onto everything she holds dear.
COLE REDBOURNE, immersed in guilt over the death of his best friend, pushed himself to the limit on his last cattle drive through Texas and back to the family’s Kansas stead. He feels he doesn’t deserve anything better than a life of loneliness and misery--that is until a gangly lawyer approaches and informs him that he is the sole beneficiary to a large spread in another territory and delivers news that Alaric’s death had not likely been an accident.
With the opportunity to start over on a ranch of his own in the city that holds the answers to his friend’s death, Cole finds himself traveling to Silver Falls, Colorado where he discovers Alaric’s childhood sweetheart standing on the steps of the Silver Falls church proposing marriage to any man who’ll take her. Out of a delayed sense of duty to honor his friend’s dying wish and a blind determination to uncover the truth, Cole steps forward with concealed reluctance, seeing no other way to fulfill his promise, and agrees to become the woman’s husband.
Their journey becomes a path of self-discovery and promises a hope, a love and happiness that can only be found in one another’s arms.
