Although Everett Cline can hardly keep up with the demands
of his homestead, he won't humiliate himself by looking for
a helpmate ever again--not after being jilted by three
mail-order brides. When a well-meaning neighbor goes behind
his back to bring yet another mail-order bride to town, he
has good reason to doubt it will work, especially after
getting a glimpse at the woman in question. She's the
prettiest woman he's ever seen, and it's just not possible
she's there to marry a simple homesteader like him.
Julia Lockwood has never been anything more than a pretty
pawn for her father or a business acquisition for her former
fiance. Having finally worked up the courage to leave her
life in Massachusetts, she's determined to find a place
where people will value her for more than her looks. Having
run out of all other options, Julia resorts to a mail-order
marriage in far-away Kansas.
Everett is skeptical a cultured woman like Julia could be
happy in a life on the plains, while Julia, deeply wounded
by a past relationship, is skittish at the idea of marriage
at all. When, despite their hesitations, they agree to a
marriage in name only, neither one is prepared for the
feelings that soon arise to complicate their arrangement.
Can two people accustomed to keeping their distance let the
barricades around their hearts down long enough to fall in love?
