Marriage Lottery™ #1 Hope and Mathew
A widow with a four year-old daughter. A man in love with another woman.

But the man who picks her name isn't happy that he's stuck with her. He's already planning their divorce.
Mathew Dearborn has been in love with Nora Benton for what seems like forever. On the day Nora finally enters her name into the lottery, Gus Lane draws it out. Every plan Mathew has made over the last seven years falls apart and withers away to dust. Now he's married to Marcus Delaware's widow Hope who has a mind of her own. The only bright light in his day is four year-old Faith, a beacon of light if ever there was one.
A young farmer is about to follow his heart into a world of danger and betrayal. His wife is going to be the one to lead him out.

Daniel Hawthorn is the richest man in Deer Hollow, which is also why he's still single. It's hard to find a worthy bride among all the gold diggers.

Thirty men. Nine women. A Brennan. A cure.

Ryan Brennan is still recovering from the murder of his uncle, aunt, and cousin when he seeks solace at his cabin in the small town of Riverton.
