She made the trip west to marry another, but fate had a different plan.

Eager mail order bride Lily Holt is on her way to marry a man she’s only met through letters. She’s been offered the position of schoolteacher in the town, too. When she steps off the stagecoach in Big Rock, her fiancé́ isn’t there to greet her. Instead, she’s met by his best friend, Amos Cameron. Amos has to break it to her that Will, her fiancé́ and his lifelong friend, has died as a result of a logging accident.

Lily is gratified that Will’s last thoughts were of her well-being when he left her his home and possessions. He’d also made Amos promise to take good care of Lily from then on and to finish the work that remained on her house. He told Amos to marry her, too, but Amos couldn’t reconcile that request with his own conviction that Lily was Will’s woman. To fall for her would be betraying his friend.

Will Lily and Amos be able to work through their grief and move on with their lives? Find out when you step back in time to Big Rock and enjoy this tale of loves lost, loves found, and new beginnings. Revel in a time when men ruled the roost and women loved them for it, at least most of the time.

Publisher’s Note: The sixth book in the series, it can also be read as a standalone. This humorous, action-filled, sweet Western romance contains a theme of power exchange.
