Realizing his stay has compromised Miranda’s reputation, Daniel goes against his better jud… show more ▼gment and propose marriage. But Miranda will have nothing to do with marriage of convenience—especially with the one man she’s always privately adored. Unless, of course, she can convince him to make her truly his wife—with all his heart and soul.
