Beautiful, spirited, Texas born Ellie Burnett needs a husband. Fast. Her father, rancher Archibald Burnett, is dying, and she’s determined to marry to protect the ranch and preserve her father’s legacy in Montana’s rugged Paradise Valley. The trouble is, she wants to wear the boots in the family and the man she has in mind, Irishman Thomas Sheenan would never stand for that.
Independent and taciturn Thomas Sheenan isn’t looking for a wife, having spent far too much of his life taking care of others. He’s come to Montana to carve out his own identity, and be his own man. The last thing he needs is a headstrong bride, but when Ellie approaches him with the offer of a lifetime, he can’t refuse.
Thomas didn’t anticipate falling for his new bride. He moved to Montana to stake his claim…he never planned on losing his heart.

Irishman Thomas Sheenan came to america looking for a new life on his own after tragedy struck his family. Marriage was the last thing he wanted. Ellie needs a husband to be able to stay
at the her family ranch once her father passes and sees Thomas as a strong capable man to help her run her. She just didn't expect him to be so strong willed. Can the two make a marriage in name only work or will someone loose there heart in the process?
I loved Thomas and Ellie's story. In the beginning Thomas seemed like a hardened man but When Ellie needed him he really showed a soft side which drew me into the story. The heartache Ellie went through after loosing her father was very relateable.
Married in Montana
This was a wonderful historical romance. I love going back in time to a different era.
Ellie is desperate for a husband because her father is dying and she will be left vulnerable if he passes before she is married. Thomas Sheenan doesn't ever want to get married, but he respects Ellie's father, and is attracted to Ellie, so when she proposes a business deal type marriage, he accepts.
I loved the emotions in this story. Ellie goes through quite the rollercoaster from marriage to her father's death, to the aftermath of that while adjusting to married life. Thomas is a good man and has experienced enough loss in his life that he is very protective of Ellie, but she is very strong willed and stubborn so they certainly have some interesting spats.
I loved the characters and storyline. It was a nice escape from reality.
marriage of convenience
Love was never part of the agreement. Ellie wanted to save the ranch and Thomas was trustworthy to run it. Emotions run high as they fight the passion to make the marriage work, but is passion enough to keep this family together? They must learn to trust and love by opening their hearts and minds to possibility...for a future.
