As the weeks turn to months, and he realizes how well they fit together, he knows that he's secured his Happily Ever After... Except for one small detail: Tess refuses to give him her love. If he can convince her that they were made for each other before the end of November, he'll be truly thankful.

"Between the witch and the rescue, the lost princess had two loving parents. This is their Happily Ever After. There's a Guild of Godmothers in Everland, Wyoming, and they're prepared to meddle. They can't stand the thought of handsome, newly arrived Doctor Jack Carpenter raising his precious little daughter all by himself, and they're determined to find him a suitable wife. Luckily, they know just how to do it: take out an advertisement in a Mail-Order Bride catalog, and make sure that the perfect candidate sees it. Too bad they didn't mention the plan to Jack first. Meri Almassy is desperate for two things: to marry a doctor, and to get away from the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, which is full of bad memories. As a respectable doctor's wife in the quaint-sounding town of Everland, she'll be free to practice her own medicine, helping the women and children in the area. It's an ideal solution, and she happily heads west to become Mrs. Jack Carpenter. But "Jack Carpenter" isn't really his name, and he's got a background no gently-bred young woman should know about. Jack is fighting his own past and he's determined to protect his daughter and his heart--at all costs. Are Meri's dreams of a medical partnership and a Happily Ever After with her new family going to be more than this skittish father can handle?

When a handsome stranger arrives trying to solve a fifteen-year-old mystery, even the most over-protected heroine knows how to let down her hair. Zelle Carpenter loves her parents. She really, really does. It's just that they're soooooo obsessed with keeping her safe that she feels like she's been locked in a tower half the time. There's no chance to go out and have fun, without resorting to a little trickery with her best friend, and there's no chance to meet boys. The only boys she knows are the always-on-their-best-behavior cowboys at Church, and who wants to practice kissing with them? Duke Dmitri Volkov is stuck in this backwater American town for one reason only; to solve the fifteen-year-old mystery about a lost princess that his father shared on his death-bed. But he's not going to pass up the opportunity to kiss a pretty girl, especially if that pretty girl has the most beguiling green eyes and taste for adventure. Despite his best efforts, he's quickly falling for this quaint town and its welcoming citizens. The only thing left is to solve his father's mystery, so that he can start his Happily Ever After. But Dmitri doesn't realize that finding the lost princess from his past will strip away any chance of future happiness in Everland. [Note: This story is the sequel to THE STEPMOTHER.
