Together for the first time in one box set, two classic Western romances from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.
First published in 1998
Her grandfather wants her to come home, and Molly thinks she just might. His ranch will be a good place for her sons to grow up, a place to escape big-city influences. Then she learns—from a stranger named Sam Dakota—that her grandfather is ill. Possibly dying. Molly packs up the kids without a second thought and makes the long drive to Sweetgrass, Montana.
Once she arrives, she immediately has questions about Sam Dakota. Why is he working on her grandfather’s ranch? Why doesn’t the sheriff trust him? Just who is he? But despite everything, Molly can’t deny her attraction to Sam—until her ailing grandfather tries to push them into marriage.
Moving to the state of Montana is one thing; entering the state of matrimony is another! Some borders aren’t so easy to cross…
First published in 2012 as The Farmer Takes a Wife.
Dave Stafford reckons he’s got enough to offer a woman: he’s decent and hardworking, and his farm in Buffalo Valley does all right. But there aren’t many women in town, so he places a personal ad. And he gets one single reply. Only Emma Fowler, a woman from Seattle, is interested. But when she arrives in North Dakota, she’s a little different from the picture she sent—and that’s not all Emma hasn’t been completely honest about. Emma is desperate to change her hectic, stretched-thin life, for her own sake…and for her three-year-old daughter. She’s been lonely, too, and is hoping that this practical match will be the solution for her bruised heart. Dave and Emma will discover they can make a family, once they get used to the fact that they are husband and wife!
