Though she’s loath to admit it, Audra Drysdale needs a man to save her ranch.
Her father has passed away and her hands are abandoning her like rats from a sinking ship. Worse, neighboring cattle baron Jess Fairbanks is making a play for the Diamond D and Audra, whichever he can get his hands on first.
Audra grudgingly accepts that the mere presence of a husband will keep her men working, and Fairbanks under control. It seems a perfectly reasonable idea, then, to ask her uncle, who is the town attorney and a matchmaker of sorts, to find her a groom—a “proxy” who will take her orders and dish them out to the men.
Dillon Pine is in jail for a conspiracy charge, but because of certain mitigating factors he’s deemed a good risk for an unusual form of probation: serving as Audra’s husband. After a year, he can abandon her and she won’t tell. By then, she will have proven to the cowboys she’s a competent rancher, and the cattle man next door will be looking elsewhere for a wife. But when word gets out that Dillon came to Audra via Evergreen’s matchmaker, he’s dubbed a “male order bride.” The resulting jokes at his expense are constant and brutal. Just how much abuse can Dillon’s pride stand?
When Audra discovers her father’s death was no accident, she realizes her new husband is in danger, too. And she cares . . . quite a lot, it turns out.
To save Dillon, she may have to let go of the one thing she’s fought her whole life to keep.

I enjoy mail-order-bride stories and this will be a nice variation on the theme. I can see where it would be harder for the male ego to put up with the circumstances of a mail-order union than it would be for women who had fewer rights and were more dependent during this time period.
No special Valentine’s plans this year. We usually fix a nice dinner at home. If we do go out for the occasion, it will be a day or so earlier or later. It is just too crowded and rushed.
No plans this year!
I don’t have any plans this year. My husband passed away in July
Nothing special. I had a nice dinner with my parents and we exchanged cards.
Valentine’s Day was literally a stormy one. Severe weather come through my part of Texas. Lunch with friends was rescheduled for Friday.
I had no plans for Valentine’s Day. My children came over for a visit in the afternoon and I was able to spend time with my grandchildren while they went out to dinner. An evening of cuddles and snuggles was just what I needed
I did nothing on Valentine’s Day
