Judd Dunn, a hard-edged Texas Ranger had taken it upon himself to put Christabel Gaines's father behind bars—where he belonged. But Judd's involvement in Crissy's life was far from over: With their jointly owned ranch on the verge of bankruptcy, Judd wed her in name only, vowing to ignore the sexual tension between them. An innocent woman like Crissy was off-limits for a man with his blemished past.

Especially someone who risked his life for a living and had little regard for matters of the heart. Now, five years later just when they should be breaking free of their sham of a marriage, their futures become further intertwined when threats of murder and sabotage turn their lives upside down. A man in Judd Dunn's line of work is bound to make his share of enemies, but he is blindsided by this bloodthirsty foe who is setting the stage for unspeakable evil and preying on Judd's greatest weakness—his wife. No longer a starry-eyed schoolgirl, Crissy's a smart, fearless woman with unfulfilled desires. And she will do anything in the name of love—including taking a bullet for her husband.

Before long, with their very lives at stake, Crissy and Judd must confront their darkest demons, their new rivals and their deepest desires-and face up to a mutual destiny they cannot outrun.
