Can Deputy Brady Moore, a man desperate to protect his brother's children, convince Dana Ritchie, a woman desperate to protect herself, to be his wife?Brady's only asking Dana to be a temporary wife. After all, he can hardly expect a woman he's just met to spend the rest of her life with him and his three nieces. If there was any other way to keep the little girls from entering "e;the system,"e; he wouldn't even ask.Dana's more than reluctant to accept. She once loved a little boy who wasn't hers and lived to regret it. If she gives her heart to the children and then has to watch them walk away, she might never recover. But how is she ever going to resist these three girls?
