Ryder's Wife is the first in the series about two brothers. Ryder is the middle one and he adored his father and ran a flying business when in one crash, he survived and his father died. Over-burdened by guilt despite being told it wasn't his fault he ran away, leaving his business and family far behind roaming from place to place trying to forget.

Casey Ruban is a heiress who lost her parents at the age of 6, and went to live with her grandfather and her two half-siblings from her mother's first
"She turned again, this time putting herself between the men and the door. I need something all right.....she cleared her throat and took a deep breath...."

"I don't need a tow truck. I need a man. I need a husband.....I'm willing to marry the first unattached man who's got the guts to stand with me against my family. I'll live with you. Cook your food. I'll even share your bed."

Book one in "The Justice Way" trilogy. We know from her later work that Sala is a great suspense author, this book helps show why. It contains just a hint of the paranormal.

The protagonists and secondary characters all show character growth. The heroine is a gutsy rich dame whose impulse control is a bit weak. The hero is learning to get past guilt for an accident that was not his fault but cost the life of a loved one. The villain is a crooked attorney, the last in an old Southern family tryin
Once again Saly's review sums it up beautifully.
First in the Justice Way series. Middle brother Ryder. A nice story of an arranged marriage in order to inherit. The hero was running from a tragedy in his life and agrees to marry the heroine, an heiress. He is nice to her and stands up for her which is a nice thing to see. Well written as are all Sala's stories. I did notice though that I've seen her use a bad guy almost exactly like this in a later book.
