Just moments away from marrying a woman he doesn't love, police detective Sam Colton discovers his bride brutally murdered. The only shocking clue: the MO matches another notorious killer—Sam's long-imprisoned father. A copycat? The victim's sister was the last to see her alive—and heard arguing with her. Sam would bet his life that shy, impossibly sexy librarian Zoe Robison had nothing to do with the murder. But when he learns what the argument was about, the former foster kid's heart hardens. Yet as Zoe is targeted by a madman, Sam discovers just how far he'll go to save her.
Not even when she finds herself pregnant, fired from her job and with no option but to accept a job back at the Fortune ranch, resolving not to tell Cruz her secret. She doesn't need a shotgun husband by her side. Cruz suspects the truth, though, and longs to be a loving partner to Savannah and doting father to their child. But he's got a couple of big obstacles: a proud, stubborn woman, and a rival with the name Fortune.
