Xan Harrington wanted a man who'd love her for herself rather than her fortune. Fate had brought her to the Bad River. Or, more accurately, she had thrown a dart at her map of the U.S.A. and where it had landed she had followed: the Badlands were as good a place as any to find a husband.
She figured that she'd know on sight the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with; so she'd placed an advertisement in the local paper - Bad Man Wanted For A Husband! - and Judd Coltrain had walked into her life. With his deep, sexy drawl and rugged good looks, Xan knew she'd found the perfect man to be the father of her children. But was Judd the simple rancher he seemed? Or would Xan live to regret the day she became a Bad man's bride?
