Mandy Chambers is moving to Pepper Gulch, Utah, to become a mail-order bride to rancher Ernest Flinn. But when she arrives, everything changes.
Now, her younger sister and Ernest are happily married and expecting their first child. The more Mandy sees the happiness of her sister, the more she wants that same happiness for herself. But Pepper Gulch isn’t a big town, and Mandy despairs of finding someone special.
Then, she bumps into her past - Colin York. Mandy unsuccessfully fought her feelings for Colin when she met him as an engaged woman. Now, though, she is free - and hope rises within her again. If only Colin feels the same way.
As Mandy navigates the trials of life in the West and as Colin struggles to maintain control of his new ranch, the two form a shaky bond. But is it enough to blossom into love?
