Cruz Maldonado has vowed to provide for his beloved cousin's orphans. With his estranged mother's health failing, they might soon be Cruz's only family. But the kids' immigration status brings complications. Mostly "Miss Rory"--their idealistic young teacher--and Cruz's court-appointed co-guardian. Cruz has the means to give the kids a good home, yet Rory Gallagher wonders whether he has the heart. That is, until she glimpses the sweet small-town boy inside the polished, handsome Wall Street exterior. Soon they both begin to wonder if this temporary partnership could turn into more--a chance to raise the children as husband and wife.
