Grant Carpenter, widowed father of two, shows up at the Blue Bonnet Wedding Chapel near Dallas to pursue "happily ever after." But before the ceremony, Grant overhears his fiancée tell the organist that his kids are spoiled brats---a situation she will soon rectify! Grant realizes he can't marry a woman who doesn't love Tara and Todd as much as he does and must walk out of the wedding.
Maid of honor Leslie Lane had agreed to babysit the groom's children during the honeymoon. Even though the honeymoon's history, Leslie doesn't retract her offer. But it's not just the kids who show up at Leslie's ranch for some rest and relaxation. The groom shows up as well!
As the days pass, Leslie and Grant feel strongly attracted to each other, but Leslie's still hurting from the loss of a past relationship, and a rebound relationship is the last thing Grant wants.
Can this unlikely couple build a future together and create the loving family they both desire?
