If Gunnery Sergeant Zane Hall wants to save his family's ranch, he'll need to fix up the buildings, stock the spread with cattle - and find a wife. The first two are easy with the help of his brothers, but getting hitched is proving more difficult. When he meets mountaineer Kenna North through an online ad, she seems like the perfect fit - at least in her emails. She wants the same thing he does: a temporary marriage to secure an inheritance. But when Zane meets Kenna, she's nothing like he expects, and Zane finds himself changing his priorities fast.
If Storm Willow wants to save her family's seaside cottage, she’ll have to keep her boss happy - which means taking Kenna’s place and marrying Zane when Kenna is detained out of the country. As long as Storm acts her part, no one will know that she's an imposter. But when she falls for the handsome marine, Storm begins to wonder if holding on to the cottage is worth giving up on love. Can a fake marriage lead to real happiness? Or is disaster just a heartbeat away?
