A woman with her sights on San Francisco.

A man scarred by his past.

An angel determined to bake up a marriage between two stubborn souls.

Georgina Jacobs plans on moving to San Francisco and marrying a very wealthy man. After her beloved aunt has been injured, she heads to Creede, Colorado to help her aunt recovery. What she didn’t count on was having to save the family bakery; a woman claiming to be an angel saying she was sent to help Georgina find love; her aunt’s broody neighbor or his equally annoying cat.

Charlie Stockton was once considered one of the most handsome men in the lower east side of New York. Now he is stuck living with his sister and her new husband until his body and mind heal. Any person who sees him would run at the first sight of his scarred body, and Charlie wouldn’t blame them. He has no intention of becoming a permanent resident of Creede. Then he meets the woman who lives behind them, and maybe Creede doesn’t look so bad after all. If he could only convince her that he doesn’t have a cat!

When Georgina discovers his secret will she stay or run? Will Charlie’s broken body keep him away from the one thing he desires more than anything? Will Mrs. Pennyworth be able to help them both and does she have assistance this time?

Seth Davis isn’t expecting any surprises when he meets the train. He plans to pick up his uncle’s new racehorse and head back to Walker Creek Ranch.
