When mail-order bride Maggie Carpenter steps off the train in Pine Haven, Montana Territory, she can't wait to meet her one true love, Chester, who seems perfect in every way. Maybe too perfect. Especially when she hunts him down in a saloon and realizes every word he wrote to her was a lie. Great. Now she's stranded in a strange town in the middle of a blizzard...when she'd hoped to be loved and desired by her new husband, not to mention learning the pleasures of the marriage bed.
Miles McClintock has been badly burned by love—twice—and the last thing he is looking for is another woman to break his heart. That's why he's moved from New York to the wilds of Montana Territory—to escape women. There is a shortage of women in town, and he likes it that way. So why does he feel compelled to help Maggie, the pretty, stranded mail-order bride? She is nothing but trouble, and sparks fly every time he looks at her. But how can he get over this sizzling need to do more than look...and maybe do a little touching...when she's constantly underfoot?
No way is Miles ever going to trust another woman—but can he resist the heat he feels for her? Maggie is the one woman who can touch his guarded heart.
