Inherited: One Baby!
by Laura Marie Altom

Needed: One Wife!

A quick, convenient marriage was the only way Jake Peterson
could keep custody of the adorable orphaned baby left in his
care. The only woman suitable as the bride-to-be was Candy
Jacobs—his ex-wife. Though circumstances had forced
them to part long ago, the sizzle between them was stronger
than ever. But would the price of marriage cost love-wary
Jake more than he bargained for?

No matter how hard she tried to resist, Candy was soon roped
in by baby Bonnie’s little hugs and Jake’s
toe-curling kisses. But before she would agree to become
this bachelor dad’s wife, Jake needed to understand
that Candy wanted his heart first…
