Kayla and the Rancher

Kayla and the Rancher
by Paige Tyler

Rancher Cord Holderness needs a wife, but with few prospects in the Wyoming Territory, he decides that the only way to find a well-bred young lady is to get a mail-order bride. However, the girl that’s supposed to be his mail-order bride gets cold feet and decides to leave it up to her new friend, Kayla Mathison, to tell him that she’s changed her mind.

But when the handsome rancher assumes that the fiercely independent and stubborn Kayla is his mail-order bride, she finds herself going along with it. Running from an arranged marriage herself, and desperately in need of funds to get herself to San Francisco, she decides to lead Cord on so that she can get the money she needs from him. But as the days turn into weeks, she finds that neither the money nor going to San Francisco interest her as much as they once did. Much to her surprise, she discovers that she’s fallen in love with him.

Life on the ranch gets even more complicated, however, when a ruthless land baron wants to take over every piece of grazing land in the territory, including Cord’s ranch, and will do anything to get it. Then, as if that weren’t enough, Kayla’s very determined fiancĂ© comes to town looking for her. But Kayla has built a relationship with Cord by letting him think that she’s someone else, and she can only hope that he loves her enough to forgive her when he find out she’s not really his mail-order bride at all.
