A Bride For Ransom By Renee Roszel
Sara Eller is frantic by the time she arrives on the small Alaskan island from Kansas. Her sixteen year old sister has run off as a mail-order bride. Lynn is her only family and her responsibility. She's so strung out by the time she meets the handsome Ransom Shepard that she tears him up and spits him out with her words, only to find out he didn't marry Lynn. Time for humble pie. What's worse is she is stuck on the island for a week and has to accept his unhappy offer of hospitality. She's not so thrilled herself as he's quite difficult. By the second week she's trapped on the island, it's more a battle of her heart. And he's a man who has no plans of falling in love again.
This story is from Sara's point of view only. Her fear of dogs actually leads to some humorous situations that have nothing to do with dogs. Poor Sara's emotions run the gamut. From fear and anger over her sister being gone to disgust with what she sees when entering Rance's home and who, or I should say what, he allows to lounge on his couch. A really good and sweet story that keeps pulling the reader in to see what will happen next.

What's a waitress from a small town in Kansas doing on a remote Alaskan island? Sara couldn't help but ask herself that very question.
She'd come to the Pribilof Islands to stop her sister from becoming Ransom's mail-order bride. But after arriving she learned 2 things--there wasn't going to be a wedding & she was stranded on the edge of nowhere w/ the mysterious Ransom.
Which brought up another question: Why was Sara falling in love w/ the handsome Alaskan? Especially since he clearly wasn't interested in marriage!
