Everything in Annie Douglas' life has
taught her that men can't be trusted. Although Burke is big, strong
and not seemingly gentle, Annie feels drawn to the handsome, Texas
cowboy. Upon discovering Burke's advertisement for a wife, Annie shyly
asks if he might consider her.
Dawson wants children; unfortunately, that also includes a wife. His
first wife was a citified hellcat who stole half of his ranch. Now
Burke is determined to find an honest, country girl with no expectations
accidents, and treachery leads to Annie leaving shattered and alone.
Can their shaking start lead to the possible loving relationship they
both desire but neither is sure of?
