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.
Between 3 and 4 stars.
