Overwhelmed with responsibilities… Struggling for a decent life after the death of her parents, Lucie Croft takes a drastic step in order to provide for her twelve-year-old brother. Accepting a mail order bride contract, Lucie and Alex catch a train to Chattanooga, Tennessee. She arrives only to discover her intended groom has died. Left with little choice, Lucie does whatever is necessary to survive. Overwhelmed with fatherhood… Sebastian McCord owns a profitable hotel but has no idea how to be a father to his little girl. When his mother appears with the bedraggled Crofts in tow, his interest is piqued far more than it should be. Finally convinced he needs help raising his daughter, Sebastian agrees to marry Lucie. Two people overwhelmed by life… Will they find love and create a family where there was none, or will life conspire to keep them apart?
I loved that this one was set in Tennessee. They were definitely two people that needed each other even though they said they didn’t. From the start, they are both drawn to each other but try to forget about it. I was not expecting the twist with her boss but loved how Sebastian took care of things. I loved his mother and boy was his daughter a handful but when she came around it was not like I expected.
Lucie was determined to take care of her brother no matter what. I loved her spirit and that she was honest about everything. She is someone that everyone instantly loves and wants to help. I loved how she was with her brother and Stella.
Sebastian swore he would never marry again, but he doesn’t know what to do with his daughter. He came off as tough, but he really was the nicest guy and would help anyone. I loved how he was with his mother and the sheriff. When he was protecting someone look out.
