RANCHER SEEKING WIFE
A newspaper ad is the desperately needed answer to Kate Whittington's prayers. Abandoned by her mother--the town tramp, raised in a bleak Maine orphanage, and a spinster without prospects, Kate dreams of a home and family of her own. Unfortunately, when she arrives to begin her new life, the man she believes she married by proxy denies placing the ad. He denies ever corresponding with or marrying her. Worse, he's a Texas Ranger who's recently been wounded while rescuing a boy from the Comanche--a boy he believes may be his long lost son.
Reed Benton doesn't want a wife, doesn't believe Kate's story of an ad and letters, but he does need help taming the wild, resentful young boy under his roof--a boy who is a painful reminder of a past filled with betrayal and lies. There is no place in Reed Benton's heart for a woman.
Can the faith of one woman with nothing left to lose create a miracle and heal two damaged souls?
