Ruth Winslow has finally married off her three younger sisters: she’s free to find a husband of her own.
She wants a man with a good heart and a big dream. A man who will treat her as a true partner in marriage.
But all the men she’s met in Boston want a woman who’ll say yes, dear and not much else. So she registers to become a mail-order bride.
A MAN WITH A SISTER IN DANGER
Kansas rancher Garrett Richards is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t—his sister Elise married the bank’s loan officer so Garrett wouldn’t lose the family ranch. But Garrett suspects that Elise’s husband abuses her, even though Elise denies it.
Having failed to convince Elise to leave her husband, Garrett is struggling to make his late parents’ ranch profitable so he can pay off the mortgage. He believes that once Elise’s childhood home is safe, she’ll leave her miserable excuse for a husband.
A VILLAIN WHO HOLDS ALL THE CARDS
When Garrett misses a payment, Elise’s husband gives him an ultimatum: pay up in three days or I’ll evict you and your new bride.
Garrett’s between a rock and a hard place, but now he’s got Ruth in his corner, and she’s about to come out swinging.
Can Ruth find a way to keep the ranch afloat and rescue her new sister-in-law from the biggest bully in town?
