Harrison Ranch -
Callie St. Michaels, an orphan from New York, felt her only hope for the future was to leave her sous chef position in St Louis. Finding a job as cook for a group of ranch hands in Sweetwater, Kansas, seemed both prophetic and serendipitous. She can continue to practice her recipes while feeding a sizable number of hungry men. Everyone is happy with the outcome except for one man – Seth Harrison, the owner of the ranch and Callie’s employer.
Callie bonds with her new home – her possibly forever home if the man living in the big house can see her as anything besides a lame woman too young to be doing the job she was doing. But she was growing to love the ranch, the people who lived there and, she feared, the man who was her boss.
Seth isn’t sure why, but he feels uncomfortable around the young woman his attorney hired as the ranch hands’ cook. She hasn’t said anything improper, or is unable to do the work required, or is off-putting in any manner. In fact, she is well liked by all the other employees including his own housekeeper. So why does he get so unsettled around her?
Macgreger Brother’s Mail Order Bride -
Mac, the oldest of the Macgregor family finds himself in need of a wife. His younger brothers have graduated university and at thirty-three he feels it time to marry and raise his own children. Answering the ad from a mail-order-bride, he is prepared for anything the young widow brings to the table.
Except he finds himself more drawn to his intended’s female friend, Emily Johnston. In usual Mac style, he continues to stay with his original plan regardless of all signs indicating the two of them are not destined for happily ever-after.
Mavis Miller is frightened of the large man meant to be her husband. Although she tries to meet the man half-way, she can’t get over feeling their relationship is doomed. Especially when stronger desires pull her in another direction leaving Emily, her friend who accompanied Mavis to Sweetwater, Kansas, to tell Mac there won’t be a wedding.
His response? “Somebody owes me a wife!”
