World champion bull rider, Braden ‘Bear” Anderson is a Montana legend in and out of the arena, but when a horrifying accident in Tulsa leaves him fighting for his life, many fear for Bear’s future. Determined to live independently, he hires a design company to remodel his luxury log cabin to accommodate his new needs, but when he arrives, and the work does not meet his specifications, he furiously fires the crew.
Josie Calhoun is no stranger to challenge. A passionate advocate for universal design after growing up with a younger brother with special needs, she’s determined to ensure that Bear’s cabin is everything he needs and wants. Bear is fierce, but Josie’s not intimidated and immediately gets to work. She soon realizes Bear needs more than an accessible home, he needs a new purpose.
Josie’s family objects to how much time she spends with Bear, but she’s never been happier. Bear knows he doesn’t deserve Josie, and thinks he should push her out the door. But can he let go of the best part of his life?
Single mom, bridal designer Paisley Powell moved from Indianapolis with her young daughter Jillian a year ago to work at MARRIED IN MARIETTA. With her four-year-old daughter in remission, Paisley is thrilled to be starting a new life in charming Marietta which has embraced her, welcoming her and Jllian into the community. Paisley is also hoping the move will help distract Jillian from her only wish—to meet the bone marrow donor who saved her life—whereas Paisley thinks distance is essential. She’s grateful to the donor but Jillian has grown up without a father and Paisley worries her daughter is idealizing the donor too much. It’s hard enough being a single mom which is why Paisley is determined to protect Jillian from rejection and pain.
Knox Campbell, a high tech engineer from Austin, signed up for the bone marrow match program during a drive at work to help a colleague. He didn’t expect to get a call saying he was a match for a baby girl and he could save her life. Knox immediately agreed and never regretted his decision, but as the years have passed, he thinks about the little girl and prays she’s healthy and happy. During a holiday visit to the Campbell ranch in Paradise Valley, Knox learns about a four year old who received a bone marrow transplant two and a half years ago, which is when he donated. He knows it’s unlikely it’s the same girl, but there are strong similarities and Christmas is the time for miracles.
Can Knox convince Paisley there is still magic in the world, and it’s important to still love and dream?
