...when he didn't. What could be more bizarre and unexpected than Patrick Gallagher standing in front of a justice of the peace marrying a woman he didn't know? Regina Raleigh was beguiling-and oh so tempting-but Patrick couldn't grasp the idea that he'd allowed himself to enter into a marriage of convenience with a woman who was dangerous to his health.
An ex-military man, able to handle stress under any situation, Patrick should've had a witty response to Regina's father's condition of the business loan. But who would've thought trying to get money from as wealthy California financier would entail taking on a wife!
And to complicate matters, when Patrick's new wife announced what she really wanted from the marriage, he couldn't believe how willing he was to fulfill her wish.
