Iris Sullivan worked hard for many years for her medical degree. When she finally obtained it, no one would hire her simply because she was a woman. The town of Nowhere, Texas was the only place she could find work in her field, so she made the move with her companion Edna Petunia Blue, fully expecting to spend the rest of her life as a spinster. When Francis Harvey walked into her office shortly after her arrival, she was surprised at the feelings he inspired.
Francis Harvey had lost his wife of seven years in childbirth and was doing his very best to raise his three daughters on his own. When his eldest broke her arm, he rushed to town for the new doctor, not anticipating what he would find. When he saw a female doctor, he immediately assumed she was a midwife and the town had made a mistake hiring her. He couldn't help but be fascinated by the blond beauty. Could he convince her that he cared about her and not just having a mother for his children? Or would they forever remain alone?
