Claire is a strong-willed, independent woman traveling from Philadelphia to Bareglen Creek with two purposes: to comfort her sister after the recent loss of her husband, and ultimately convince her sister and brother to return home to Philadelphia — where they belong. She’s also running from a proposal from Edward Woodbury, one of the most sought-after bachelors in Philadelphia — well, sought after by every woman but her, that is.
Sheriff Sully has preconceived notions about Claire, and 'annoyed' doesn’t even begin to cover how he feels about being tasked with protecting her. After Claire arrives, he finds himself creating a list of all the things he admires about her, and he’s surprised by the fact he wants to get to know her better. He wants to add more items to the ever-growing list of things he admires, but she’ll leave Bareglen Creek in less than four weeks unless he can give her a reason to stay.
Claire finds herself intrigued by the handsome and intelligent Sheriff, yet chagrined that her father tasked him with her protection. She’s quite capable of taking care of herself—why won’t anyone listen to the fact that she doesn’t need a man for that?
Or does she?
When danger strikes at the heart of Bareglen Creek, and events begin swirling out of control, Claire wonders if she’s made a mistake. Her immediate attraction to Sheriff Sully shocks her, and she has no idea what to do with feelings awakened inside her, let alone with the danger that threatens.
Will Sheriff Sully and Claire discover that some things in life are worth fighting for — and potentially risking your life for — before it is too late?
Join Sheriff Sully and Claire on a whirlwind journey that includes danger, intrigue, kidnappings, Indians, Cowboys, and more.
What Do Readers Say?
“LOVED IT!! A MUST READ FOR EVERYONE!!”
"Written with a special style that really brings the story to life. I could feel terror, joy, sadness, giddiness. The whole gamut of emotions was felt throughout the book. I loved how the storyline played out.”
"I actually loved this story. It is action packed, and with a heroine with enough gumption to be a Texan. The attraction between these two is instantaneous and you wonder if the sheriff has gotten himself in too deep with Claire. Claire made me laugh and smile whenever she confused Sully. It made for a delightful tale and some action-packed drama.”
"I was supposed to be paying bills but I kept being drawn back into the story! Shootings, train robbers, kidnapping, Indians, longhorns, wild west adventure AND an HEA (Happily Ever After) kept the action plunging ahead; a slew of likable people (and a gang of bad guys) kept me turning pages.”
