New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe delivers another winner when a marriage of convenience is the only way for a rugged cowboy to protect the unborn baby of his late best friend.
"OH. MY. GOSH! This was the best book I've read in a really, really long time." ~jenny7 (Amazon Review)
Mira Cabot has always wanted a family, and now she has the chance…but being on the run while she's pregnant, broke, and single wasn't exactly how she'd envisioned it. When a distractingly handsome cowboy offers her a marriage of convenience, it's the lifeline she needs…and one that no modern-day woman would ever accept…right?
Rancher Chase Stockton trusts no one except his brothers and his late best friend…who left behind a baby on the way. Chase knows who will come after that baby, and the only way he can protect it is to give the child…and its mother…his name.
When Mira arrives in Wyoming to be the bride of a cowboy she's met only once, neither of them expect to find the love that has always eluded them…the love they both so desperately yearn for.

I loved this story. True romance, mixed with action, humor, and love. I don't usually buy my books, but this series is worth it.
Fun small town romance
Extremely fun, sweetly sexy, emotionally engaging, passion filled romantic adventure that includes a surprise baby twist..
Chase Stockton and his brother have an unshakeable bond formed by surviving a their brutal childhood together. Mira Cabot is a sassy, strong and independent woman that never asks for help, until now. The question is will Chase's need to protect Mira be the one thing that shakes the bond between him and his brothers? Enjoyed this heart pounding and exciting journey.
This is my first book by Stephanie Rowe and I really enjoyed her writing. This was well written and the characters were mature. It's a good story, but I did have a hard time with the constant back and forth between the main characters. Both Mira and Chase have been let down by the opposite sex their whole lives except for one person. Their mutual best friend who recently died and brought them together.
Chase and his brothers have been treated horribly by every woman that came into their dad's life. The more the women that treated his father bad, the worse he then treated his sons. It was a vicious cycle that Chase swore he would never repeat for himself. Despite never wanting to get involved with a woman, he couldn't leave Mira at the mercy of his best friends dad knowing he was just as abusive as his own.
Mira has had to witness her best friend get constantly abused by his father growing up. Her family stepped in when they could to help him until one fateful car accident stole her fathers life and put her mother in critical care for the remainder of her days.
Because of Mira having to quit school to go home and take care of her mom, her fiance at the time dumped her. Years later with her mom passed away and her best friend following not long after, she no longer has faith in men. When Chase offers her protection against her best friends dad, she's not in a place to turn him down.
Because of these two fighting their own demons, they are constantly battling their attraction to each other and afraid to open themselves up to the possible hurt. I wish we could have gotten less of the pushing away and more of them exploring their new relationship. However, I was very happy with the ending.
This book will appeal to the readers who love that push/pull relationship. ARC provided by NetGalley.
