Mail-Order Brides of the Southwest series, Book 3
Escaping the outlaw who controlled her old life, Alayna Kimbal is determined to forge a new one. She answers a mail-order bride request and shoulders the job of wife and mother, each day hoping her lies and the identity of the man hunting her aren’t discovered.
US Marshal Jerome Riddick has never considered getting married until he inherits his best friend’s three children after she’s murdered. Struggling to care for her children and do his job, he takes a bride—only to find out she’s keeping a huge secret from him. A secret that could get them all killed.
