You can't fool true love…
Charlotte Kennedy thought she was a U.S. citizen, but it turns out she isn't. Now, to claim her inheritance, she has no choice but to get married— ASAP! Otherwise, her brother is threatening to have her deported, so he take over the family company. But luckily, Charlotte has a potential husband in mind… Sexy cowboy Emmett Sawyer.
As a teenager, Emmett proposed to Charlotte just to make her laugh. She never gave him an answer then. But his response to her sudden proposal now is a definitive no. She may be gorgeous, but getting married to a woman he's barely seen since high school sounds crazy to the gruff, taciturn cowboy.
That is, until he sees the conditions of his frail mother's new nursing home. Charlotte's impulsive proposal includes a nice cash influx for him. Which would give him enough money to take care of his mother, and his struggling ranch.
But then Emmett starts letting his heart get in the way of common sense. And it's not long before he realizes he's in real danger of falling in love with his fake wife…
