As if meeting his birth mother and discovering he has a twin brother aren't enough to test a man, Jake Morrow's short one ranch cook. So when pregnant Emma Hurley comes looking for a job and whips up the best steak dinner he's ever had, Jake hires her on the spot. And when Emma's father demands she marry or lose her family farm, Jake stuns Emma—and himself—by proposing.
After being left in the lurch, Emma can handle five hungry, romance-challenged cowboys. Well, except for one—the handsome rancher and Blue Gulch's most eligible bachelor—who gallantly comes to her rescue. Only now Emma's gone and fallen for her pretend fiancé. But Jake isn't looking for a forever kind of love…is he?
