Laid off and down to her last few dollars, Gina Taylor is desperate to provide for her baby boy when she sees an advertisement for a mail order bride in Marietta, Montana. On just a photo of a serious but handsome man and the charm of his kind, deep voice on the phone, Gina packs up her few belongings and leaves the hardships of San Francisco behind.
When widowed deputy sheriff Rory Watson buys a neglected ranch in desperate need of repairs and a homey touch, he realizes how much he misses the companionship marriage offers. His brother found a bride and happiness with an advertisement. Maybe he can too. But Rory gets more than he bargained for when Gina arrives, baby on her hip.
Rory can forgive a lot, but Gina never mentioned a baby. His instinct is to send her home, but his uneasy conscience insists she stay–temporarily. Gradually, Rory discovers that Gina’s smile, love of country life, and can-do attitude wake up something he never knew was dormant, and the chubby baby reminds him of how much he once wanted a family.
Can a down-on-her-luck woman find the home she’s always wanted with a man afraid to love again?

My Rating: 4 stars
The Sheriff’s Mail-Order Bride is an emotional story that I enjoyed very much. Rory is a rock solid kinda guy, one who believes in all cards on the table. When Gina showed up answering his ad… well, there’d been absolutely no mention of a baby being part of their deal. Gina has hit almost rock bottom and she’ll do anything for the well being and protection of her son… even answering an ad for a bride. Maybe she’s crazy or maybe she’s found that safe haven she dreamed of. Only time and Rory can answer that. And when even more omissions come to light it’s going to take a rock solid kind of love to get these three through to the happy ever after they deserve.
