During a nasty storm in Paradise Corners, Montana,
Deputy Sheriff Owen 'Rafe' Rafferty takes drunken teenager
Bobby Maxwell home. Instead of a thank you for not
allowing the inebriated Bobby to drive, Rafe receives the
riot act from his passenger's father, Robert 'Boss'
Maxwell, owner of Walking Stones Ranch. Only Bobby's older
sister Althea treats Rafe with any gratitude.
Rafe and Thea hit it off from the start to the surprise
of both of them and quickly fall in love. However, their
relationship hits a nasty dilemma for the couple when Rafe
needs to arrest the troubled Bobby. This forces a
distraught Thea to choose between her soul mate and her
beloved younger brother.
Lynette Kent's MARRIED IN MONTANA is a fast-paced tale
that is filled with angst and loving dilemmas under the Big
Sky Country. The heroine is a wonderful person who
deserves to inherit the ranch she loves while Rafe does the
right thing even as though he thinks he lost his love of a
lifetime by doing so. Though Boss Maxwell seems unreal to
even be a character, the remaining secondary cast,
especially the troubled Bobby, add depth and set the stage
for the next two tales in this miniseries: Roxanne
Rustand's A MONTANA FAMILY and Ellen James' MY MONTANA HOME.
