Deputy U.S Marshal Logan McCall never expected his first bullet wound to come from a young widow with pretty blue eyes. Nor did he expect to nurse his injury while working furtively on a ranch. Now, instead of chasing the notorious band of outlaws he’s been hunting, he commits to proving the woman’s neighbor is trying to drive her off her land.
Paige Kelly is only trying to protect what’s hers when she shoots the tall, handsome lawman by mistake. She fears she’ll be arrested, but instead gains an ally. Working together during the day leads to passion at night. Soon, Paige is dreaming of a very different life, but first, she must convince the marshal to turn in his badge and stay with her.
A desperate act from Logan’s boyhood changed the course of his life and his demons still whisper that he isn’t worthy of the things Paige is offering. But as they realize there is more than one villain hiding in plain sight, Logan can no longer deny what’s in his heart. Suddenly a lifetime of putting the law first pales to keeping Paige safe… But has his realization come too late?
