#1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller enthralls with the second passionate romance in her classic series featuring the three McKettrick brothers who founded a dynasty.
Kade McKettrick’s got five mail order brides-to-be at the local hotel, all more than eager to brave the frontier and provide the heir that will win Kade the Triple M ranch. But the newly appointed marshal has his hands full with a troublesome outlaw gang. Why, then, is he so easily distracted by the pretty “Sister Mandy”—whose claim to be a nun is obviously false?
On the run from her outlaw stepfather, Mandy Sperrin hides a wild, passionate nature beneath her solemn disguise. But when Kade makes it clear he wants her, she cannot resist her own heated desires…
Despite the secrets luring them both into danger, Kade knows marriage may be the only way to keep this spirited woman. But are her ties to a shadowed past more threatening—and closer—than Kade realizes? And while his strong, sensual embrace may charm Mandy’s tempestuous heart, dare she surrender for a lifetime?
