Keira Cameron came to Boston from Scotland after the death of her parents. She wanted a job, a husband, and eventually a family. She feels rejected because at almost six feet she's too tall, Her Scottish burr makes her appear too foreign. She is too pretty for any wife to want Keira working near the woman's husband. Were her expectations unreasonable? Her cousin convinces her to enter a proxy marriage to his friend, Gideon Ross, who lives in Montana Territory. Out of options, she agrees and hopes her goals will be realized.

Reluctantly, he agrees to wed Keira by proxy.
