#1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood introduces the beloved Clayborne family in this passionate novel.

The four Clayborne brothers were a rough gang of street urchins—until they found an abandoned baby girl in a New York City alley, named her Mary Rose, and headed to Blue Belle, Montana, to raise her to be a lady. They became a family—held together by loyalty and love if not blood—when suddenly a stranger threatened to tear them apart...

Lord Harrison Stanford MacDonald brandishes a six-shooter and a swagger, but he soon proves to be a gentleman to the core. The brothers have taught him frontier survival, while Mary Rose has touched his heart with a deep and desperate passion. But soon, a shattering secret will challenge everything Mary Rose believes about herself, her life, and her newfound love.


  • Frustrating and Pointless

    By Annaliese Nikole
    This was one of the most frustrating reads I have had in a while. You have a coward and a hot head constantly drawing the wrong conclusions and acting so stubborn that the story drags and there is hardly any romance. The leading conversations do not even make sense and the characters are never on the same page—not once! The same passages get repeated over and over, enough that a reader can skip the last third of the book and still not miss the plot. Awful, frustrating read and so disappointing after how good the author’s other series are. Save money, AND TIME, do not purchase this book.
  • My favorite book ever!

    Wonderful. I love the letters to Mama Rose they give a glimpse into the past in a way that warms your heart. Could not put it down. This book keeps you wanting more.
