Judd Dunn, a hard-edged Texas Ranger had taken it upon
himself to put Christabel Gaines's father behind
barswhere 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 weaknesshis
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 loveincluding 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.
