First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes Dan Dawson, Jr., In The Baby Carriage! The Mule Hollow matchmakers were singing that ditty right in Ashby Templeton's ear. And though she wanted a husband and a baby more than anything, she drew the line at Dan Dawson. The handsome cowboy–who loved telling Ashby to lighten up–wasn't exactly the serious, settling-down sort she'd hoped to find at the church singles group. Yet in a town of lonesome cowboys in want of wives, Dan was the only one asking her for a date. Asking for a chance to show Ashby that he could make all her dreams come true.
