Georgie Ittner always had the freedom to keep men at bay and spend her time and love on the horses of her father's ranch. But when her father dies, she discovers that she must marry if she wants to keep the land. Unwilling to wed herself to a man with dark secrets, she shuns Leo, her longtime suitor, and places an ad in the newspaper for a mail order husband.

Jeremy Mayhew is a man looking to put his past behind him. Recently released from prison, he's content to rebuild his life from the ground up.

Will he be able to escape his past although it is coming after him?

When the truth comes to light, Georgie will have to decide whether to trust her head or her heart as she gambles everything to protect the ones she loves. Will Jeremy and Georgie be able to overcome the difficulties and stay together? Are their feelings strong enough to rebuild their relationship and trust?
