Casey Clinton was in a bind. Custody courts didn't favor single fathers, and he seemed perilously close to losing his beloved nephew. What he needed was a wife. And since childhood buddy Joanna Vail had always stood by his side through thick and thin, why shouldn't she stand beside him at the altar, too?
Long-standing loyalty demanded Joanna wed Casey...something completely different drew her to his bed. But adult urges upset childhood chumminess, and emotions more daring than mere desire threatened their camaraderie. Had Joanna gone and fallen in love with her husband? And could either admit their commitment had more than a practical purpose?
