Summary

A bright future awaits the women of courage and faith who boldly chase their dreams across the wide-open Montana Territory, prepared to embrace adventure and forge their own destinies... When French immigrant Zoe de Fleur is forced out of her position as a household cook for a high society New Yorker, the pretty and talented chef seizes an unexpected chance to head west for a new beginning. She pursues what she thinks is a prestigious job in the frontier's "finest kitchen," but instead finds herself in a matchmaker's agency... Isaak Gunderson is one of Helena Montana's most eligible bachelors, but he's too focused on running for mayor and his family's business to think about a wife and family. His twin brother, Jakob is supposed to be too busy as well, yet sends for a mail-order bride anyway. Isaak doesn't want to fuel an ongoing rivalry with his twin, but this tempting newcomer can't be ignored. If only she'd come to Helena a different way and loving her wasn't a betrayal...
