Navy SEAL Jaron Everitt has one year to find a wife or he'll miss out on inheriting his uncle's 2,000-acre Montana ranch. When he discovers the ranch has been managed by the gorgeous and dedicated Kinsley Shaye, he begins to have second thoughts about selling the land and imagines himself working the ranch with her. However, gold-digger Ellie Ashton has other plans in mind. She sees her chance to use her looks to fool this out-of-towner into a false marriage.
Helen has always placed the needs of others before her own. After the death of her father, Helen put herself in a position to take care of her mother, whose constant dependency forces Helen with little time for herself. When she must turn down the job of her dreams with Bevan-Jones Real Estate, she begins to believe she will spend her entire life denying herself the joys of a career and love life.
