Before the era of the Mail-Order-Bride, there were the Brides of Circumstance which is similar to Mail-Order-Bride: Women are forced to marry for one reason or another.
In 1771, The War for Independence was fought with fire and blood, but the war of two hearts in the city of Nafton, Oklahoma was just as fierce.
Willa Travis' good life seems like it's coming to an end as she watches the last of her relatives, her loving grandfather, pass away.
The Travis' had once been a family of great wealth, but in the last months of her grandfather's life, that wealth was lost and now Willa finds herself all alone and penniless.
Forced out onto the streets…
She finds herself being proposed to by a stranger, a man named Marcus.
Without much of a choice, she realizes that anything would be better than being homeless... or so she believes.
Marcus Cullenshire has offered Willa his hand in marriage for one reason: Revenge!
The Travis family was responsible for the death of his father ten years earlier and now that Marcus is in control and has all of the power, he is sure that bringing the last of the Travis family pain will finally bring him happiness.
What he doesn't plan on is finding happiness with Willa in a way he hadn't planned.
He finds himself wanting a true marriage, built out of love with Willa, but can he ever reveal his truths to her?
And when the truth does finally get out, how will she react?
And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love. -1st Corinthians 13:13
