Someone wanted Chicago heiress Jessica Lockhart dead before she claimed her vast inheritance. And until she secured her fortune by marrying for one year, she'd have to stay in her gilded cage with sexy, scowling bodyguard Brody Smith. So why not employ Brody as hired gun and hired groom?
Brody claimed pampered Jessica would never last in his rough–hewn ranching world. Still, he swore he'd keep her safe and chaste until their makeshift marriage ended. But Jessica loved Colorado's wide–open spaces. And she definitely hankered for Brody. And she had twelve whole months to make this maverick her man.
