After an innocent encounter, Lon’s reputation was all it took to slander Catherine’s good name. To escape the vicious gossip, she leaves home to assist her uncle's family in settling into a new home on a ranch. Unfortunately, she finds herself a victim of her uncle’s self-righteous censure and constant lectures on proper behavior only to discover what she’d run from had followed - and worse.
A deadly encounter with the past, legends come back to life, enemies old and new, family estranged, and family thought dead all collided in the violence she had condemned him for. Will Catherine run away again or stay and admit her love for Lon? Will she prove herself a woman strong enough for the wilds of Colorado and willing to fight for her man?
Sweet western romance from Larion Wills!
