A confirmed bachelor at the age of thirty-nine, Trevor Wilkins has everything he needs or desires—a lavish lifestyle with only himself to answer to, easy money at his disposal and an exciting life racing the Wilkins' family horses. He will leave married life to his two brothers. That is, until Claire Holcomb and her five wonderfully impish children blindside him.
Claire will never trust another man, and never give her heart away again. Her ogre of a husband is finally gone. Penniless and widowed with five hungry children, she is determined to meet life on her own terms no matter how hard the journey becomes. Besides, she is past the age where any man would look twice at her.
Trevor doesn't think so. And when she runs, he follows her, because suddenly a life with Claire and her five urchins is the only thing that will make his world complete.
