This is a re-issue of the original book published by Zebra Precious Gems, written under the pen name Jill Henry. Sensual content. Approximately 70,000 words (about 251 print pages). Bound by Duty Army Major Jonah Hunter has spent his lifetime answering the call of duty, but when he returns to the Connecticut village where he was raised to be at his dying father's bedside, he faces his biggest challenge yet; finding a bride. Jonah's father's dying wish is to see his oldest son married and settled down, and although Jonah has no desire to do either, he is duty bound to honor his father's wish. While all of the village's marriage-aged women are throwing themselves his way, Jonah is drawn to the one woman who wants nothing to do with him; the sharp-tongued, spinster Tessa Bradford. As the village healer, Tessa has spent many days and nights in the Hunter home caring for the Jonah's ailing father and watching as local women throw themselves at the Army hero. Labeled as harsh and severe, Tessa knows there is no way the village's most eligible bachelor will be interested in her. But sparks fly between the unlikely couple. When Jonah proposes to Tessa, she must decide whether his offer was made out of love or simply because his father needs a nursemaid. Unwilling to be stuck in a loveless marriage, Tessa must decide if there is more than passion drawing her and Jonah together and if the feelings she has for him can ever be returned by the war-hardened soldier.
