❤ A SHAM WEDDING BECOMES THE REAL THING? ❤
She’s come home to save her ranch.
He’s stayed put with hopes for a second chance.
Matty Brennan would do anything to save her family’s Wyoming ranch. Even if it means marrying the handsome cowboy who broke her heart six years ago. But when she asks for his hand in temporary matrimony, she never expected her old feelings to rush back in.
Dave Currick has loved Matty as long as he can remember. To him that means protecting her, especially from herself. Certain she’ll get cold feet before the I-dos, he accepts her off-the-wall marriage proposal, because then she’ll have to spend time with him. That doesn’t mean he won’t negotiate a few items in this crazy engagement.
But as their wedding day approaches, Dave is shocked when Matty doesn't back down. And keeping up the charade in front of their unsuspecting family and friends can't help but rekindle their chemistry. When Dave and Matty's secret slips out, can their fake marriage bloom into real love?
