A disastrous factory fire ends Katie Maverick's livelihood and she must find something quick. Convinced to become a mail-order bride, she receives an offer of marriage from Daniel O'Malley.
Only Daniel isn't the one who put the ad in the Grooms' Gazette. His business partner, secretly placed the ad in Daniel's name. When Katie arrives, a surprised Daniel agrees to marry her with the idea she could help make his life easier and still the gossip surrounding the death of his wife.
He's unprepared for the way the bubbly girl from Massachusetts eases his loneliness. Not only is she helpful, she's breaking through the walls he's erected around his heart. Troubled by the suspicious vandalizing suddenly occurring in the vineyard, Daniel wonders if things might not be as good as they seem. Is it only coincidental that the damage to his winery coincides with Katie's arrival?
Could this sweet, innocent woman and his dead wife share a common goal to destroy him?
