The Cowboy Takes a Wife Desiree Parrish had two weeks to find a man strong enough to protect her from her abusive ex-husband. She'd never forgotten Carter Prescott's kindness to her, many years ago, but could she trust him to keep her and her daughter safe now? Though she was offering him a marriage in name only, Carter had one nonnegotiable condition-Desiree would have to share his name and his bed! The Unforgiving Bride From the moment rancher Falcon Whitelaw first saw Mara Ainsworth, she was the woman of his dreams-but she belonged to someone else. Then a tragic accident left her widowed-and she blamed Falcon. Now Mara has come to him for help. It seems marrying him is the only way to save her daughter's life. Now that he's got her just where he wants her, can Falcon convince Mara to forgive him and make this a marriage for real?
