Four brothers. Four straws. One bride.
No one steps on Archer land. Not if they value their life. But when Meredith Hayes overhears a plot to burn the Archer brothers off their ranch, a long-standing debt compels her to take the risk.
Years of constant vigilance hardens a man. Yet when Travis Archer comes across a female trespasser with the same vivid blue eyes as the courageous young girl he once aided, he can't bring himself to send her away. And when an act of sacrifice leaves her injured and her reputation in shreds, gratitude and guilt prompt him to attempt to rescue her once again.
Despite the fact that Travis is no longer the gallant youth Meredith once dreamed about, she vows to stand by his side. But will love ever be hers? Or will Travis always see her as merely a short-straw bride?

Ms. Witemeyer has done it again! She has written a book that has amazing characters and storyline that has romance galore, and will have you putting aside house cleaning, dishes and even television to finish reading. I loved it and cannot wait to see what the author comes up with to top it.
Without being preachy, the author shows how the characters rely on God to guide their lives, and even when we fail He will be there. I could could visualize myself in each scene and would love to see this book, or any other of Witemeyer's novels, in a movie. It's that good.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
