A wife shouldn't be a surprise package. But Mountie surgeon John Calloway suddenly found himself saddled with a special delivery he hadn't signed for-mail-order bride Sarah O'Neill. He had no room in his life for marriage! But why then did he feel compelled to protect Sarah from all things dark and dangerous-including her own unspoken past? If John Calloway didn't want her, fine! Sarah would survive-and thrive!-without him! The rugged, committed doctor dismissed his proposal as an elaborate prank. So how come the two of them kept finding themselves in each other's arms? And what would Sarah be forced to deny in order to stay there?
