Danger lurks in the mountains of New Mexico when sheriff-turned-bounty-hunter Brock MacDermott goes on the prowl for infamous outlaw Zeb Logan. Logan killed Brock's brother and his family in an ambush, and Brock has never forgiven himself for failing to keep them safe.

Driven by his single-minded mission to make Logan pay, he rides from town to town on a lonely quest, careful to keep emotional attachments at arm's length--until young, beautiful Stevie Rae Buchanan insists on joining his hunt. Stevie Rae's father was also brutally murdered by Logan, and she won't rest until the outlaw is either behind bars or dead.

There's no room for romance when you're chasing down a dangerous criminal, but when undeniable feelings develop between them, Stevie Rae and Brock must decide whether capturing Logan is worth sacrificing everything else.

Can the eldest MacDermott brother put his family trauma at the hands of the Logan gang aside once and for all to make room for love? Find out in the emotional and satisfying conclusion to this heartfelt series.

Sheriff Teague MacDermott’s life has been on hold since the Logan gang rode through Paradise Falls, killing and wounding his loved ones in an attempt to break one of their own out of jail. Now, four years later, he fears history is about to repeat itself as the last of the Logans is due to be released from prison and their ringleader vowed to return and put a bullet in his back. Teague has not forgotten Jeff Logan’s promise to return to Paradise Falls and put a bullet in his back. He failed to protect his family once; he cannot let Logan get anywhere near his niece—or the spirited, new-in-town reporter who has found her way into his heart, despite his better judgment.

In order to win a coveted position on her father’s newspaper, journalist Ryleigh Steele needs to write an in-depth story about how Sheriff MacDermott stopped the most notorious gang in Colorado. There’s just one problem—the enigmatic sheriff won’t open up to her, despite the growing attraction between them.

With Logan’s release from prison looming, they must make tough choices. Ryleigh wants the story and the sheriff, but she can’t have both. And Teague wants Ryleigh’s love, but accepting her into his life means putting her in Logan’s crosshairs. Can they risk it all for a brighter future together?
