Synopsis: It broke Jenny Archibald's heart to lose her best friend, Lena, to a fever—Jenny's not about to let any harm come to two-year-old Meggie, Lena's orphaned daughter. Jenny will take Meggie to the girl's uncle in Dakota Territory. And if Jenny's parents won't let her leave without her promise to marry a man of their choosing on her return, then that's a trade Jenny's willing to make. But she never expected to lose her heart to Meggie, to the wild beauty of the frontier…or to Burke Edwards, Meggie's handsome uncle. Torn between her obligation to her parents and her own dreams of happiness, which will yield—her promise…or her heart?
