A marriage of convenience, to a man she'd only just met, was the only way to protect Brenna McIntyre from the cruel viscount determined to have her no matter what. The only problem was a most unwilling groom. The last thing Tony Radcliffe wanted, or needed, was a wife - even if their marriage was in name only. Left without a choice, he relented, but remained determined to keep Brenna at arm's length. The journey from Ireland to America sparks a desire neither had expected, and one too powerful to ignore, even as the shadow of Brenna's past threatens the peace she's found in Tony's arms.
