"A whimsical marriage of convenience tale"

In 1892 Maryland, Elthia Sinclaire accepts a job as governess to the children of Caleb Tanner even though it means relocating to Texas. Elthia feels this is an opportunity for her to break free from her father.

Caleb does not want a governess. He really needs a wife so he can adopt his six nieces and nephews before the children are scattered among various families as what happened to he and his siblings twenty years ago. However, the clock is ticking as he has three days to find a spouse. Though she has doubts about marrying Caleb, especially since they differ on the "contract", Elthia agrees to a marriage for the sake of the kids. She quickly falls in love with her children and tries to ignore her growing attraction to her husband, who reciprocates her feelings of love, an emotion neither acknowledges.

Winnie Griggs' western romance will grab readers' attention from start to finish because of the warm lead couple and the six charges that bring them together. The audience will empathize with Caleb struggles with the nightmare that history is unfairly repeating itself. Elthia is very spirited, but amusingly is no housekeeper based on her futile efforts as such but her love for the Texas six makes her a perfect mom. Her hilarious battles with the hero on top of a wonderful plot enable fans to receive SOMETHING MORE from Ms. Griggs.
