Accused of a murder she did not commit, Tessa Roarke has no choice but to accept the help of a handsome stranger.
Half-Cherokee lawyer David Alexander isn’t looking for trouble—or Tessa. But when he agrees to help clear her name and opens his home to the redheaded Irish spitfire, they become the talk of the small Wyoming town of Peaceable.
They may be living on borrowed time, but when passion flares between them, David and Tessa discover they might just be willing to brave the risk of scandal to reap the rewards of a forever love.
