Noah Kincaid is a minister in search of a church when he stumbles across Hope McCrea’s eBay auction and impetuously decides to use his recent inheritance to finance his dreams. Ellie Baldwin is trying to rebuild her life and make a home for her kids away from her manipulative ex-husband, who currently has custody in an attempt to force her back into his arms. Flamboyant and attractive, Ellie is exactly the wrong person for the job of minister’s assistant, but when Noah’s compassion overrules his good sense, he discovers that she is also a hard worker and mature beyond her years.
