Tired of waiting for his sons to settle down, Arizona-territory rancher Angus McKettrick announces a competition: the first son to marry and produce a grandchild will inherit Triple M ranch. Now, three distinctly different, equally determined cowboys are searching high and low for brides.
If Emmeline Harding knows one thing, it’s that she can’t hold her liquor. And though she’s not sure how she came to wake up next to a stack of gold coins in a brothel, she fears the worst. Fleeing town as a mail-order bride, she wonders: how will she ever confess her past to her handsome new husband?
Freedom-loving Rafe McKettrick is a man of strong beliefs and stronger passions and he’ll do anything to win the Triple M — even marry a stranger. To his surprise, Emmeline’s charms beguile him even as the secrets he senses she’s hiding ignite jealousy and suspicion. But when a visitor from the past enters the high country, the newlyweds have no choice but to give up on a marriage in name only and seek a union that satisfies them body and soul.
This is something of Romance. There a mystery of how she get her gold coins. She think of one thing and believe it to be something different then she images. She thinks she loss her self. But she find out something and it to be true but what she learns is that she was wrong. She found out she loves Rafe McKettrick.

AN ASTONISHING MESSAGE DELIVERED
TO ORDINARY PEOPLE
A typical teenager, Jillian Macomb is looking forward to her senior year in high school. Or at least she was. Having just broken up with her boyfriend, she receives the stunning and unexpected news that she’s pregnant. As if that isn’t enough, she must convince her parents and her doctor of the truth…she is still a virgin. She forms an unlikely alliance with Stephen Jacobs, her father’s protégé, when they both finally realize the child she carries is no ordinary child.
Then the miracles begin.
Amid escalating chaos surrounding the miraculous events taking place around them, Stephen and Jillian fight to protect a blessed child from those whose lust for greed and power threaten to harm the very life that promises to save them.
The Last Summer of Ordinary Times, a novel of suspense, is the story of extraordinary events surrounding the birth of a child, where ordinary people are faced with questions about what they really believe, and whether faith alone is enough when faced with the unimaginable.
This book was interesting. But it was a bit creepy. I did enjoy it though. It something different. If you enjoy the story about Christianity. Then this a book for you. I was a little creepy out by it but not horribly. I am not starting it a bad book. I did like it but I it gave me a bit of strange dreams.

I thought this book was in the middle. I liked it. I think I would understand it a little bit more if I read the second book before this one. I think it would make sense a bit more. It still good with out reading the second book in this series. I will let you decide for yourselves.
The book focus on Gideon and find the faith. Lonnie need to learn to deal with her own problems as does Gideon. You also see a friendship and others in on it. I do not want to give anything away so I will leave it here.

I love this book. Though it the third book in the series. I would love to read book 1 and two. This book deals with someone who struggling to deal with herself and her Illness a bit and building a relationship. This book does go into several thing about dealing the illness and how to over come it and several different issues. I really do believe the author did a great job. I will let you decide it you ever want to read it and come away with your own thoughts on it.
