Working as a waitress at a Harvey House Restaurant out West has been a life saver for homeless Callie Rhinehart. After the death of her parents and sister, the position has provided a roof over her head, the security of decent pay, and a future with a reputable company. When handsome widow Frank Sutton sits at her counter with a sweet little boy in need of a mother, Callie’s carefully laid plans are threatened. But despite her growing feelings for the rancher, should she give up the security and independence afforded by the Harvey Company and risk a marriage of mere convenience to a temptingly handsome stranger?
It’s true that Frank originally pursued Callie because he needed a mother for his child, but he’s fallen in love with her independent spirit. Competing with another man for her affections is one thing, competing with the Harvey Company is proving to be quite another.
