One man. One woman. It had never happened before and would probably never happen again.
On a warm March night, Sarah Godwin rides to the Lottery Prelude, but she's accosted by the Leiman brothers along the way. It's her handsome neighbor Raja Jacobson who comes to the rescue, saving her from a terrible fate. Less than an hour later he saves her a second time when an explosion kills all of the lottery entrants at the prelude. Those two shared experiences bind them together for life. But soon after they're married Sarah learns that Raj has a terrible temper, one that he inherited from his abusive Viking father.
It never occurred to Raj Jacobson that his future wife would be the youngest of the Godwin daughters, his neighbors. He'd spent all these years looking for a bride and she was right next door the whole time. But the prelude tragedy has everyone coming to his wife to be consoled and that includes her best friend Kate's two handsome cousins. In one jealous rage, his perfect marriage is ruined and Sarah's entered the Divorce Lottery.
Two beautiful souls, two very different families. Sometimes fate sends you what you want. And sometimes it sends you who you need.
