TEMPORARY BRIDE As a descendant of the proud, noble Benningtons, Katherine Bennington-Logan III had been taught to face a crisis with courage and composure. But not even a Bennington could stop flying bottles once a brawl had started. Suddenly, Katherine found herself surrounded by angry merchants outside a Mexican cantina. Her money was gone. Her knowledge of Spanish was limited. And her sense of decorum told her she was in big trouble. Then she spotted the tall, broad-shouldered man with brilliant blue eyes. His sun-streaked hair and dusty clothes reminded her of an outlaw. But as the only man in town who spoke English, he was her last hope. When Josh McFadden spotted Katherine, he couldn't help but be amused by the situation. This golden-haired, green-eyed gringa had the townspeople in an uproar. Josh usually steered clear of other people's problems, but this woman was different. He would step in and play hero for Katherine Logan. In return, he wanted a simple favor -- a promise that would cost Katherine two weeks of her life. Josh needed a temporary bride, and lovely, regal Katherine Logan was perfect for the role.
