Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she's returned to Wyoming and her small-town home for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family's ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her. Matty's up to something -- Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he'll provide it, just as he did all the time they were childhood sweethearts. Doing what's best for Matty is second nature. Even when it comes to agreeing to a marriage of convenience. Although he can't resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos. Maybe -- just maybe -- his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.

Birds of Wyoming fills the niche for a state-based reference that will be useful to a wide range of professional disciplines and amateur birders.
