Jacob Garrison was a respected rancher who could deal with stampedes, blizzards, and even range wars. But how was he supposed to handle his little girls falling in love?
Laurel-The most tomboyish of all the Garrison girls, Laurel dreaded the thought of marriage-especially to a tenderfoot like Lord Collier Pembroke. If she loved anything, it was the Bighorn Mountains, the beauty of the foothills; if there was anything she desired, it was her own ranch with plenty of cattle. From the Land Office, she got just that. But as her father didn't trust her to survive Wyoming's treacherous winter on her own, a sham marriage to Pembroke was the sole solution.

Then Laurel realized that her first step to joy had been in...proving herself..
