Ellie Booth was never the type to run away. But she'd
witnessed her stepfather commit a heartless crime, and,
knowing he'll stop at nothing to keep her quiet, she has
no choice but to flee. Soon, she finds herself in Wabash,
Indiana, scrambling for a cover identity to evade her
stepfather. For lack of a better option, she answers an ad
for a wife/housekeeper/nanny, praying that her lack of
experience won't be obvious.
A widowed father with no domestic skills to speak of
Gage Cooper is reaching the end of his rope. With four
children between the ages of three and ten, he needs a
reliable nanny, yet each one he's hired has thrown up her
hands and deserted her post. When an attractive, spirited
young woman applies for the "job," he knows he should
pray about the matter, but his desperation for help propels
him headlong into a marriage of convenience.
A trial by fire of their wedding vows
Ellie immediately falls in love with the Cooper children
and, not long after, with their father. Soon, the "marriage
of convenience" becomes less of a business arrangement
as husband and wife yield to an attraction neither one had
expected. When secrets of the past and dangers of the
present arise in their lives, their marriage is put to the test,
and God alone knows what will become of their union.
