Gabe came to try to convince Mary to sell her land to Bravos so that they could build houses there. The last thing he expected was for Mary to go into labor, or that he will help her get through it.

Instant family brings out love feelings from a hardened bachelor in this Texas ranch themed romance.
Pregnant widow, Mary Hofstetter is about ten months gone when the rude and pushy Gabe Bravo shows up on her doorstep ready to buy her land.
