An orphan tired of being alone. A Brennan in love with another woman.
Hope Cummings didn't want to marry a man who was in love with another woman. But that's what God has in store for her. In every other way, Chester Brennan is the perfect husband and at least she's not alone anymore. Then she meets Chester's family and falls in love with all of them. Only Chester thinks she's dangerous around kids and not fancy like his beloved Maggie. She's finally had enough--being alone is better than having your heart broken every day.
Chester Brennan enters the lottery for Maggie Henderson. Only when the magistrate calls time does Maggie reveal that she didn't enter and she's in love with someone else. As she's walking away with a stranger, his name is called and he's forced to marry a stranger, Hope Cummings. Life with Hope is different than anything he ever imagined with Maggie. She's likable, easy on the eyes, and has a big heart. But when he takes her home to meet his family jealousy makes him say all the wrong things. Before he knows it she's left him and signed her name on the divorce list. He has nine months to find her or he'll lose her forever.
A woman in a strange town. The Brennanmen searching for her. Sometimes the families God makes for us aren't by blood.
