Single father Stony Stratton was sure he was safe from the meddling matchmakers of Shotgun Ridge until Eden Williams arrived on his ranch with an outrageous proposal. Eden had only six months to make a baby or forever hold her peace. Stony was just the man for the job. A gentle giant if there ever was one, he'd embodied all of the good qualities Eden hoped to pass on to her child and possessed all of the male sex appeal a woman could want. Taking Eden to bed would be Stony's pleasure, but he wouldn't do it without taking her down the aisle first.
