Buckhorn's big, bad sheriff, Morgan Hudson, wants a wife—one who's even-tempered, undemanding and content with small-town life. So why can't he stop thinking about brazen Misty Malone? The dark-haired city girl is downright aggravating—and she sure loves to aggravate him in particular. But though she may not be perfect, Morgan starts to realize that they just might be perfect together…
Misty's in Buckhorn for only one reason—to attend her sister's whirlwind marriage. Once she's sure that everything is as it should be, she'll hightail it away to get some distance between her and the controlling, larger than life Morgan. Too bad she's not sure where to go next, since she's recently been fired, framed, and is keeping a very big secret. But these Buckhorn men take care of the women they love, and she's about to find out she's no exception!
