HER HUSBAND After a suspicious fire claimed the life of her father and nearly that of rescuer Ben Wells, Morgan Winters engaged in a marriage of convenience with Ben for protection—and vengeance. Swathed in bandages and wheelchair-bound, Ben enlisted a trusted investigator to expose a murder plot and to watch over his in-name-only wife. HER BODYGUARD "Josh" insisted on midnight meetings, disguises, anonymity. His evasiveness concealed his identity as surely as Ben's bandages covered his wounded face and body. But to prove the murderer's guilt, she had to believe in her husband's confidant—a mystery man who stirred Morgan's suspicions as well as her senses. HIDDEN IDENTITY
