Ever since Wade Gray lost his ranch and his son, he’s had one mission: get both of them back. After a year, he has his son. Now it’s time to get the ranch. With all his careful planning, he realizes he might not make it back. He’s up against a ruthless enemy who’ll kill anyone who gets in his way. In order to secure his son’s future, he rushes to marry Millie Washington, the woman he rescued on the same night he and his family got his son back. Love doesn’t factor into the equation. Love didn’t factor into his first marriage, either. He married his first wife to rescue her from a life of prostitution and abuse, and the arrangement never led to love. So to him, marriage is a logical decision based on what can benefit both people. In this case, he can offer Millie a place to live, and she’ll be the mother to his son. It’s as simple as that. But marriage to Millie isn’t like what he had with his first wife. Millie isn’t weighed down by a harsh past. She has an innocent way of looking at the world that becomes a welcome relief after all he’s been through. In the rugged Wyoming Territory, she’s the only pleasant thing that exists. This poses a very difficult proposition for him. If he falls in love with her, it could get in the way of getting his ranch back. Feelings always get in the way of doing what’s necessary. And he can’t afford for anything to get in his way.

When Joe Otto accepted the job to lead a wagon train to California, the last thing he expected was to be asked to marry Mr. Heller’s daughter. Still pining over the one that got away, he’s not sure he has it in him to open his heart to another woman. Mr. Heller assures him the arrangement will only be temporary. Once Joe delivers her to her aunt and uncle in California, he can annul the marriage. Joe can use the money, and besides, it’s only a temporary arrangement. She won’t be his wife for the rest of his life. Reassured by this logic, he agrees to the marriage contract. Michelle Heller knows the only way she’s going on the wagon train is if she has a husband, so she readily accepts the deal her father makes with Joe. What she doesn’t expect, however, is that her new husband is the most attractive young man she’s ever seen. Over and over, she has to remind herself their marriage isn’t real. It’s only borne of necessity. But as the days pass on the trail, it’s harder to remember their marriage is only on paper, and it seems the two are at odds as to what they want this marriage to be. After Joe watched the woman of his dreams start a life with someone else, he vowed he would never open himself up to being hurt again. Can Michelle break through his wall, or will she have to annul the marriage once she reaches California?

Most gentlemen wait to get married because they want time to enjoy being a bachelor before taking on the responsibilities of a married gentleman. Baldwin Darby, the Duke of Edmondstone, isn’t one of them. The life of a rogue never appealed to him. He’s wanted nothing more than to fall in love and live a quiet and uneventful life ever since he could remember. It wasn’t by choice that he hasn’t married yet. He’s just not very comfortable around ladies, which makes the marriage mart difficult for him. So when his acquaintance mentions a sister at his country estate who is ready for marriage, he jumps at the chance for an arranged marriage. He’s been told she is extremely shy and that it takes her time to open up around strangers, so he might find her a bit strange when he initially meets her. But this doesn’t bother him. He’s a patient gentleman and can give her time to get used to him. What he doesn’t count on, however, is just how strange everything is when he gets to the country estate. She refuses to leave her section of the manor, she has to go to bed before it’s dark, and she has an unusual fascination for monsters. Despite all of that, she is beautiful and possesses a sweet temperament. He wishes he could figure out a way to help her embrace a normal life. If he keeps pressing for her to have a normal life, he just might get his wish. But nothing will prepare him for the truth. *This is loosely based off the Rapunzel fairy tale.
