John Murphy gets the shock of his life when he finds three abandoned girls on his doorstep. Once he takes them in, it isn’t long before the little tykes bring out his fiercest protective instincts. So when their mother shows up at his Emmett’s Mill ranch, he’s ready to do battle.
Except Renee Dolling isn’t what he expects. She clearly loves her girls and wants to make up for past mistakes. John wants to trust her, but he’s got the girls to think about. Unless Renee can prove she’s the mother her daughters deserve…and the woman this solitary rancher needs.
