Their marriage was nothing more than a business transaction. Or at least that was what they told themselves. Poppy Weston had been burned enough times by undeserving men to know her heart was best left under lock and key. She was content with her life, even with the lack of romance. Then Jase Hyland walked into Redbud Inn and offered her something she couldn't refuse. In return, all she had to do was marry him. Jase had seen firsthand the kind of damage relationships caused, and he wanted nothing to do with it. He'd been taught from a young age that the only things that should matter to a man were wealth and power. However, all it took was a series of events to lead him down a path he never expected to travel. It was supposed to be simple. No feelings, no emotions, just two friends entering into a mutually beneficial arrangement. He thought he had it all figured out . . . until he went and fell for his wife.
