Once glance at the doe-eyed girl in the photo melted the icy walls around Zeke Chamber's heart. Till then, he'd kept his past secret, his feelings hidden. But now he had to reach out - for the help he needed to rescue this child. Zeke needed a wife in twenty-four hours. But could he ask Elizabeth Egan, the woman he secretly loved, to marry him for a pretense, to put her life in danger? With a killer in pursuit and the fate of his child in the balance, Zeke has no other choice. When he looked at Elizabeth he dreamed of forming the perfect little family. But it was a fantasy, like hearing her say she loved him. And fantasy was a luxury he couldn't afford - until he got his daughter back.
