When wealthy heiress Gemma Belmont needs a hero, she goes in search of the “Bountiful Baron”, a legendary character famed throughout the west for rescuing damsels in distress. What she doesn’t expect to find is a gruff, gorgeous Irishman who has been thrust into the role against his will. Now all she has to do is convince him that the only way to protect her is to marry her…
Murphy O’Brien is a former Pinkerton agent and saloon owner who has spent the last several years guarding his own battered heart. The last thing he wants is to become a reluctant bodyguard—and husband—to a pampered American princess. But he soon finds his heart under siege by Gemma’s charm, beauty, and wit.
Gemma knows their marriage of convenience is only an illusion. But she still finds herself falling beneath the spell of Murphy’s husky brogue and masterful touch. And after a few long, enchanting nights in his arms, she realizes the man she has hired to protect her might be far more dangerous to her yearning heart than any assassin…
