She Was His Bride in Name Only Could She Teach Him to Trust in Love Once Again? Emily Cannon, a Chicago etiquette teacher, is not the mail-order bride Luke Becker expected: plain and tall, Emily has taken someone else's place as Luke's bride. And she is far from the woman Luke thought he wanted. Arriving in Oregon with nothing but the gown and veil her sister had intended to wear, Emily has nowhere to go and is in more desperate straits than she can ever let on. But Luke needs a mother for his eleven-year-old daughter, and despite his anger at the deception, he can't turn this proud, yet vulnerable, woman away. He's determined to keep this a marriage in name only — unless Emily's quiet grace and tender understanding can tempt him to open his heart!
