The Cowboy and the Bride(2004)
(The first book in the Fatherhood series)
A novel by Marin Thomas
Wild Horses Couldn't Drag Him to the Altar Again
With one bad marriage under his belt and a little girl by his side, Jake Montgomery solemnly swears that he doesn't want another wife - until he finds a damsel in a wedding dress snagged on his barbed-wire fence, and his white-knight instincts kick in like a bucking bronco. That's when the solo dad knows he's in for the ride of his life.
Madeline Tate has just been stood up by her fiance. But when she's taken in by a guy with eyes as deep and blue as the cloudless Nevada sky, she begins to believe that her luck has changed. And she also begins to hope that once they spend some time under the same roof, maybe - just maybe - the rancher will give love another chance.
