A Marriage of Convenience Takes a Turn in Tempting Torment, by Jo Goodman
1787 England, Virginia and Philadelphia
After quickly wedding the mortally wounded Noah McClellan, Jessa Winter intends to flee England as his widow along with her infant child. But she didn't anticipate Noah's will to live or his determination to make her deliver on all their marriage vows.
As they sail for America, Noah has every intention of getting his due from the cunning female who's played him for a fool. But his growing tenderness for this beautiful woman he now calls wife, and the tiny child she cradles, has him torn between claiming what's his and winning her heart.

MEET JO GOODMAN:
Jo Goodman is a licensed professional counselor working with children and families in West Virginia’s Northern Panhandle. Always a fan of the happily ever after, Jo turned to writing romances early in her career as a child care worker when she realized the only life script she could control was the one she wrote herself. She is inspired by the resiliency and courage of the children she meets and feels privileged to be trusted with their stories, the ones that they alone have the right to tell.
Once upon a time, Jo believed she was going to be a marine biologist. She knows she is lucky that seasickness made her change course. She lives with her family in Colliers, West Virginia.
