She intrigues him.
Gabe Talbot has never met a woman like Josie.
She’s beautiful but dresses like a man.
She’s elegant but cusses like a sailor.
And even though he watched his brother nearly die from heartache when he lost his wife, Gabe is breaking every rule he’s ever had about women.
He’s falling in love.
But Josie has other ideas. She’s never known a man who didn’t abandon his family, her own father included.
She’s independent. Capable. She doesn’t need to depend on anyone. And she doesn’t want a man who’s going to give her another broken heart.
When four lonely orphans enter the picture, Josie might finally accept his marriage proposal, but it’s her mixed-up, rebellious heart he’s determined to claim.
