"Nate Farrell's looking for a wife," the people of Soldier Creek whispered. "And he's got his eye on Maura Foster"
Once those words had scared Maura Foster. She'd been seventeen - too young and innocent to deal with the powerful emotions Nate stirred in her. And so she'd mad a choice...and it wasn't Nate.
But Nate had never forgotten Maura. He knew she was the right woman for him - and one day he'd prove it. When the chance to get closer to the lovely widow and her young son came, Nate didn't hesitate. This time he'd go slowly, patiently...and Maura wouldn't realize what hit her until she was walking down the aisle!
