Celia Lawrence can't show her face in her conservative, small town. First, she discovered her husband in bed with another man's wife, and then she witnessed both their murders. While she didn't pull the trigger, small town gossip is not forgiving and everywhere she goes she is chastised for not being woman enough to keep her straying husband at home. Eager to flee her old life, Celia heads to Colorado as a mail-order bride.
As mayor of Slate Springs, Colorado, Luke Benson is expected to set the example. Their small town is hidden away in a remote mountainous region where few women have the courage or desire to tread. As mayor, it falls to him to test out their newly passed law and share a wife with his friend. The truth is, Luke has no interest in a woman of his own, and agrees to a mail-order bride out of duty, not anticipation.
His close friend, Walker, is jaded and hard after the death of his first wife. For Walker, loving again is out of the question. But a man has needs, and he'll eagerly take his pleasure from their new bride while expecting Luke to provide the tenderness and caring a woman expects.
A marriage based on everything but love should be doomed. But Celia, Luke and Walker discover one thing they have in common: desire. Will that be strong enough to survive the danger that follows Celia from Texas? Will desire be strong enough to teach the three that sometimes you have to risk everything for love?
Circumstance made these brothers NEED to marry the same woman. The woman herself made them WANT her. I enjoyed watching Walker fight falling in love with Celia. I also liked watching Celia blossom as a part of a new ménage marriage. With Luke and Walker as your husbands, who wouldn't!
This author is quickly becoming one of my favorites. The settings, the language, the dress, it's all playing in my head like a real time movie. I love it when that happens! I can't wait to read more of this fabulous series.
