Homestead-1890. It was the kind of place where men put down roots, where women gathered for quilting bees and lively gossip, where friends helped each other through good times and bad.
But with a drunk for a father, and a ne'er-do-well for a brother, Rose Townsend needed more than generous neighbors - she needed a knight in shining armor to rescue her from a life of drudgery. And the dangerously desirable stranger staying at her mother's boardinghouse seemed to fit the role. Rose couldn't have guessed that she'd be forced into a shotgun wedding with Michael Rafferty and that he would believe her a deceitful schemer who wanted his money. Trapped in a marriage neither of them wanted, Rose couldn't deny the irresistible attraction she felt for Michael - or her hope that one day they would forge a love as pure and passionate as the promise of her heart.
