Pregnant Millie Callaghan didn’t ask to be married to an Irish mob boss. But she didn’t realize how dangerous a man her husband was until she caught him beating an innocent man to death.
Fearing for her child’s safety, she files for divorce and flees west, seeking help from a small-town Arizona sheriff who proposed to Millie’s cousin…and doesn’t know that he’s about to be turned down.
Millie’s only hope is to disappear until her ex-husband gives up the chase.
Sheriff Aaron Coburn isn’t expecting a pregnant woman to waltz into his office and tell him that his marriage proposal to her cousin has been rejected. Or that she’s on the run from the mob and needs his help.
But he’s a man of conscience. A man who could never walk away from a woman in distress.
When he tries to help Millie and her child escape the wrath of infamous Eddie the Snake, he doesn’t count on the mobster taking his own mother hostage.
Aaron has no choice but to let Millie risk her own life—and that of her child’s—to help him take down the Snake.
Can Aaron and Millie outwit the vicious mobster and bring everyone home in time for Christmas?
