A New York Times Bestseller 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 weds 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. 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.Palmer, Diane is the author of 'Lawless' with ISBN 9781587245039 and ISBN 1587245035.
