Ethan Tremaine has spent his entire life running from the tragedy of his past, but he can’t refuse his best friend’s dying request. He reluctantly agrees to marry Jessalyn, though he’s terrified by the thought of someone depending on him.What begins as a marriage of convenience quickly becomes much more.
