** spoiler alert ** I usually like convenience-marriage histories, because they allow you the see how a relationship evolves from respect to love, how the emotional link between two people grows.
In this case, there was another challenge: Tye not only faces a convenience marriage proposal (Megan marries him to save the ranch), he faces the memory of Megan's husband.
I enjoyed it, but sometimes Megan discomfited me. And I had a feeling that in the end, the writer wanted us to feel that Tye was better than Joe (at least sexually). I would have loved it better if it wasn't necessary. Luckily I have not had the experience, but I think that is possible just to love a different person, not because it is better, but because is just a different one, because of the bonding in spite of the new virtues and flaws.
