Ruthann by Cat Cahill
Can a marriage of convenience turn into a second chance at love? Ruthann Joliet has been in love with her brother's best friend, Nathaniel Harper, since she was a girl. When Nate kissed her and then enlisted in the Army, Ruthann was certain she'd never see him again. Years later, Nate has returned to Cañon City and set up shop as a photographer. But much to Ruthann's dismay, he's changed. The once easygoing, affable boy has turned into a hardened man. When a pending scandal means that Nate needs to marry quickly or leave town, Ruthann is his only willing option. Can a man haunted by the past find love in the present? And will Ruthann learn to love the man Nate is now, particularly when the reason she married him threatens everything they hold dear?
