FALSE PRETENSES...Desperate to escape to America with her life--and that of the infant in her arms--Jessa Winter quickly agrees to wed a mortally wounded man, planning to flee England as his widow. She doesn't count on Noah McClellan's will to live--or his determination to make her deliver on ALL of their marriage vows. But baby Gideon and her own hidden secrets must be protected--even as Noah's passionate demands tempt her to trust him with everything : the truth, her life, and her heart...LEAD TO TRUE PASSIONS...Noah has every intention of getting his due from the cunning female who's played him for a fool. As they sail for America, he is torn between outrage and growing tenderness for this beautiful woman he now calls wife. Jessa's recklessness nearly cost him his life--yet he cannot fight the burgeoning desire to tease and tempt her into sharing more than just his name.
