"BRENNA NEEDS A HUSBAND,"
Jed McCal's nephew Tuck told him. Pregnant and alone, Brenna Jamison was back--trying single-handedly to run her father's touch.
"WE NEED A WIFE,"
Tuck said. If footloose cowboy Jed McCall didn't do something drastic, he would lose custody of the boy. But marriage?
asked Tuck. There were reasons that only fed knew. And marrying Brenna--becoming a father to her child--would be like jumping from the frying pan into the fire.
