The heroine Lainey has been married to the hero Gabe for nearly five years, but in those five years she has refused to see or have anything to do with him. Lainey had left him on their wedding day after her mother told her that Gabe married her purely for her late father's ranch. But after her mother's recent death, Lainey had discovered evidence that her mother had been lying to her all these years. When Gabe sees Lainey arrive at his home, he knows she has come for a divorce. And she had, but ...more

A second-chance-at-love story: Five years ago Lainey left her new husband because it turned out he only married her for convenience. Or had he? When she learns that she might have been spectularly wrong about Gabe Patton, Lainey returns to the ranch in order to apologize and to offer him a divorce. Yet to her shock, Gabe insists that they stay married.

One of my all-time favourite romances. A perfect comfort-read.

He's lived on the ranch and brought it back to what it was once known for. They spend a lot of time together on the ranch and get to know one another again.

La novia había tenido que huir de su propia boda
La última vez que Lainey había visto a Gabe Patton había sido hacía cinco años... ¡mientras intercambiaban los votos matrimoniales! Aquella había sido una boda de ensueño hasta que Lainey descubrió que Gabe sólo se casa con ella por conveniencia. No le había quedado otra alternativa que huir.
Recientemente Lainey había desvelado un secreto que le había hecho darse cuenta de que q

Ceritanya bagus... Standar harlequin lah. Salut aja sama Gabe Patton yang sabar banget selama ampir 5 tahun ngadepin kelakuannya Lainey. Tapi... toh Gabe cinta sama Lainey, jadi gak sia-sia nunggu Lainey selama 5 tahun.

Yang bikin penasaran sih -buat saya- tadinya saya pikir, Gabe bakal tetep nyimpen semua kado-kado yang pernah dipulangin sama Lainey... Trus Lainey nemuin kado-kado itu waktu lagi beberes baju. Pengen tau gimana Susan Fox menggambarkan perasaan Lainey.
