Arabella Blake knows exactly what her uncle Jeb and his housekeeper Katherine are up to. They're trying to marry her off to the new ranch foreman, Jonathon Cody. Don't they know she's a confirmed spinster at the ripe old age of twenty three and likes it that way? No husband for her. Thanks, but no thanks.
Widower Jonathon Cody's heart died the day he buried his wife. Time has healed the wound but not his heart. He's come to Sweet Creek, Montana Territory hoping to forget, not to get caught up in some matchmaking scheme of Jeb and Katherine's. He'll just join Arabella in resisting any type of matchmaking nonsense, except for one thing. Being with Arabella makes him wonder--can his wounded heart find a way to love again?
