In debt and desperate to escape the clutches of her landlord, Bonnie Sinclair sneaks out of her home in the middle the night and heads west as a mail order bride. She has been assured that Amos Colt is a good man, and he is certainly from a good family. But when Bonnie arrives with an unexpected child, rescued after being abandoned by its mother, Amos is in for two surprises. Because not only was he not expecting a child - he also wasn't expecting a bride!
Amos Colt left his privileged life to start a new one out west, and he has done very well for himself. So when his mother arranges for him to marry Bonnie Sinclair, he's not at all happy about it. But when he meets this lovely woman, and her unexpected ward, he finds himself drawn to her right away. Even so, can he overcome his suspicions and reluctance and accept this new family into his life?
And will Bonnie even want him to?
