Something about the woman hit John Roper hard, right in the gut. She was frightened, her face bruised, yet her inner beauty and bravery were immediately apparent. And there was no way in hell he was leaving her alone to face a roomful of rowdy cowboys and whatever desperate circumstances had brought her there in the first place.But how he got from those first thoughts to making herhis wifewas something he was still wrestling with the next day. He knew he'd put his life on the line to protect her. But would a man who knew nothing about being a husband ever be able to give Katie the happy ending she so deserved?
When ranch foreman John Roper offers an abused teenage runaway a safe home and a job as his housekeeper, the last thing he expects is to end up married. But when Katie's brutal foster parents come storming after her, the judge "suggests" a wedding for her safety. Love and passion soon follow, but trust comes more slowly as a once-burned-twice-shy hero and a mistreated and unbelievably naOve heroine work to make their union last in this sweetly sensual heart warmer with a bleak 1890 Dakota Territory setting.
