He was the monster from her past. She was everything he didn’t know he wanted.
When Mirabelle Waters’ father falls ill, she must return home from Edilann and find a husband quickly to take over the ranch. When two men are lining up at her doorstep for their chance to win her hand, the decision is easy. Because Barnaby is everything she wanted. And Gilberd? He was her childhood nemesis.

However, wooing her is not easy, especially when she has her eye on someone else. That, and the woman hates his guts.
As the two become closer, Mirabelle realizes Gilberd might not be the villain she always thought he was. But will she get the chance to give him her heart? Or will her father’s sinister past destroy any chance they have at happiness?
