Evil touched Quinlan once. Will it do so again?
The best thing that ever happened to Quinlan Clark was the day the law took her to an orphanage. Now, the time has come for Quinlan and the other young teachers to go out on their own as mail-order brides. But childhood nightmares still haunt Quinlan, keeping her terror of men firmly set.
After ten years of hunting the men who killed his brother, Will Adams has finally come home. His mother, determined to spoil grandbabies, finds him a mail-order bride he has no interest in. But from the moment Will lays eyes on his skittish bride, he’s smitten.
With secrets between them, the two try to start a life together, but one of their pasts isn’t through with them yet. Can Will kill to protect someone he loves? And is Quinlan’s new husband just like her bloodthirsty father?
