In a tiny Texas town, the old folks were determined to trigger a population explosion!
And sexy out-of-towner Jake Maddox was the answer to their prayers. No woman could resist his masculine appeal. Plus, he had "commitment" written all over him: a little boy to raise and a hankering to set down roots. A wife raffle was just the solution to their population problem.
Except Mary van Doorn, the elected-only eligible"intended," didn't cotton to that. With the responsibility of six younger sisters, she'd never known romance and wasn't looking for any. But relentless matchmaking, Jake's all-male pursuit and her own feminine need were a hard combination to resist in such a small town. She found herself wanting Jake and a life with him, but was she more than a convenient candidate for wife?
