Carter Monroe is a rancher and pretty content with his life as it is. He doesn’t think he’s missing anything, at least nothing he can think of. Then BAM!! His world is turned upside down when he finds a baby on his doorstep. The mother was under the mistaken impression he was the father, but he’s not, but he thinks he knows who is. Regardless, he decides to raise the child as his own.
Here is the blurb for Carter:
Carter Monroe woke on a normal day or so he thought. Then he found a baby in a basket on his front porch with a note stating he was the father. That was impossible and yet the baby’s mama had been sure. With no way to find the mother, he takes the responsibility of raising the little girl, Lanie, as his daughter.
Lanie needed everything. While at the mercantile he meets beautiful Samantha Wallace who informs him she is his mail-order bride, a bride he knows nothing about. When he sees her, mistake or not, he knows he can never let her go.
What is going on? A baby and a bride all on the same day? Was someone playing tricks on him or was he just having a really strange day?
