A novel by

 
 
The Barnes & Noble Review
It wasn't much of a marriage proposal: "Please send one wife. Healthy, with good teeth. Able to read and write. And cook. Must want children. Soon." Still, Rafe McKettrick didn't have much time. His father, tired of waiting for grandchildren, has issued an ultimatum. The first of his sons to marry and produce a child will get the ranch, and his two brothers will work for him. Rafe, the eldest, is desperate, but with a little help from the Happy Home Matrimonial Service, he'll have a wife wedded, bedded, and in the family way while his brothers, Jeb and Kade, are still making small talk in front parlors and trying to live down their wild reputations. But Rafe hadn't reckoned on his mail-order bride, Emmeline, having her own plans. She seemed pleased enough to be Mrs. Rafe McKettrick, content with her new home in Arizona, and shyly happy to accept his embraces. But her ideas about how things ought to be within a marriage are soon turning Rafe's well-ordered world upside down. Suddenly, he's expected to side with land-grabbing squatters, welcome his wife's mysterious aunt...and deal with the arrival of a long-lost brother who seems disturbingly well acquainted with Emmeline. This first volume in Linda Lael Miller's McKettrick Cowboys trilogy is written with the same humor, warmth, and passion that made the author's bestselling Springwater books such a treat. Sue Stone
