WANTED: FAIRY GODMOTHER To transform three city slicker boys into ranch-ready cowboys ASAP. Free room and board. Jake 555-7752 In this romantic comedy, bull rider Jake Lassiter unexpectedly finds himself the sole guardian to his three teenaged cousins, and it’s a disaster. So far they’ve let his prized bull out and nearly got them all killed, put a hole in the shed roof, and turned his quiet orderly ranch into a chaotic deathtrap. He needs to rid them of their city ways and teach them how to survive on a Montana ranch or they are all going to end up dead. At the end of his rope, Jake places an ad for someone with some magic to transform the boys. Longing for roots and a place to settle down, Callie Jean Andrews is back in the only place she calls home, her late grandfather’s small hometown. However, things aren’t working out for this professional child wrangler. She’s without a job, has no place to stay, and her money supply is dwindling fast. So when she sees the unorthodox ad in the county newspaper, she applies, keeping her fingers crossed all will work out. Jake and Callie discover they’re fighting a powerful attraction to each other, torn over what to do about it, and at odds over what the boys want and need, especially after the boys get it in their heads that Jake and Callie as a couple would be the best solution for all of them. Can a cowboy with a gypsy soul accept the love he’s always needed but never knew he wanted? And can a fairy godmother wave her magic wand and get the family and home she’s always longed for?
