Madeline loves her job working at the newspaper, even if it's under a pen name. What she doesn't love is the knowing glances from her neighbors, thanks to the awful man who turned her away. When she is given the assignment to write about mail order brides, she decides to take it one step farther and become one herself.
Nathaniel loves his homestead in the wilds of Idaho, and he's ready to start up his new business. The only problem is that there are few women in the area, and he hopes to find a wife. When his friends suggest he try finding a mail order bride, Nathaniel finds the fiery Madeline's application and sends off his letter.
While sparks fly between them, things on the ranch aren't quite as perfect. Winter is coming quickly, making it difficult to get the harvest in, and someone is starting fires throughout the valley. Will their troubles be too much for Madeline and Nathaniel to handle, or will their love be enough to create their happily ever after?
