Maggie Clayton had first come to Wyoming as a seventeen-year-old bride. Together, she and her husband fought impossible odds to build the White Raven Ranch from a wild, untamed land. Then, suddenly Trent was dead, killed by a bullet bought and paid for by Big Ben Tate, a wealthy rancher out to seize her land. Maggie hired Seth Sackett to safeguard her family and her home . . . but who would protect her from the rugged, irresistible gunslinger?
Seth had lived through a darkness no man should ever know, and he hid his bitter secret deep in his soul. His gun was his curse and his salvation. Now he would use it to fight a brutal range war…to protect the woman who threatened to break through his defenses . . . and made his heart ache with longing for the rapturous promise of a love he never dreamed could be his . . .
