Abused young woman with a baby/drifter who turns out to be a millionaire rancher romance. He marries her to save her from her abusive stepfather and to save himself from his descent into alcoholism at the loss of his family.
I love Catherine Anderson. This is a really good book. The woman Rafe tries to rescue, ends up rescuing him too, just in a different way. I enjoyed enough to read it more than once and I'd definitely recommend it.
