Twice forced to marry a stranger.
Deborah Asberry’s father picked her first husband. Now she’s widowed, and her father is forcing her to marry again—this time to a widower with two small children who lives in southwest Missouri far from her St. Louis home. If only she could love and know the love of a gentle man, but she’s never disobeyed her father.
Dane Stark’s wife died in childbirth two months before. He needs help with his children, but he will never place another woman in that same danger. By marrying a stranger, he believes he can keep his distance. Then he meets Deborah, and he soon longs for a normal marriage with her.
But Deborah harbors a secret that could tear apart the fragile thread that holds Dane’s heart to hers. When another woman interferes, Deborah doesn’t know what to believe.
Only true love can overcome the odds Dane and Deborah face.

Like all her books this one will keep you hooked until the last page. I understand after the fact that this book is in a series so you migh want to read the others first, however I jumped straight in with this one and can say that you won't have trouble with it if you decide to buy it alone. This was a great love story clean and well written, you fall in love with the characters and by the end you feel like you know them ;) -CH
This, the 4th book in the Brides of Cedar Creek series, was my favorite. The book was very easy to read, yet full of surprises, emotion, deep feelings, forgiveness and love. I highly recommend it.
