Persephone Mae Alden is the invisible Alden sister, quiet, industrious, generous, kind-hearted, loyal and reliable. The words used to describe Mae remind her of a well-trained dog. She’s not happy about it, but what can she do? She likes her quiet life and would be seriously upset if she had to defy convention like Edith or act on instinct like Kiera. But everything changes when necessity forces her to bravery and she must choose between love and family. A horrifying bequest convinces Boston attorney James W. Collins V that Mae Alden needs a husband, and she’s just the type of wife he wants. The two of them will be a perfect match. Refusing his offer makes no sense, so why won’t the woman accept?

“If you think you aren’t in love with Mae Alden, you are lying to yourself as well as her,” chuckled the good doctor.
“You presume too much.” The words hissed through James’s tightly clenched teeth.
“I’d relax that jaw if I were you. It could break with all the tension you’re holding back. Then you’d fall victim to the jawbone of an ass.”
James’s mouth dropped open, and he stared at the man. “Are you comparing me to Samson or calling me an ass?”
“A little of both. Samson was something of an ass himself. What man with any brains allows a woman to unman him and make him defenseless? I don’t believe for a minute that it was his hair Delilah removed.”
“You make no sense. Mae has not unmanned me. Nor has she made me defenseless. She certainly hasn’t removed my…er…she hasn’t removed anything.” James resumed clenching his teeth.
“No, she has not unmanned you in any literal sense, but figuratively she’s got you roped, tied and ready for branding, as I believe a western cowpoke would phrase it.”
“Doctor, your penchant for metaphor is lamentable.”
