Zach Bravo needed a partner to help him run his ranch—but a wife? Lovely widowed mother Tess DeMarley had "perfect wife" written all over her, but Zach had lost at love once before and he wasn't about to open himself up to that kind of pain again. So he decides to propose a marriage in name only.
And he knew that it would stay just that, because Tess was a one-man woman. Too bad Zach wasn't that man.
If you'd asked Tess DeMarley what man she'd always dreamed of having down on one knee proposing to her, Zach Bravo would not have been her first choice. But she has to think of her daughter, and Zach's offer is a good one. And yet, once they're married, she begins to see her husband in a whole new light. Could her in-name-only spouse possibly be the man she's been looking for all along?
