With her family’s legacy on the line, a woman with everything to lose must rely on a man hiding from his past…
Frontier women don’t ride off alone to track an outlaw—not even women as capable as tomboy spinster Willa Malone. But Willa desperately needs the bounty money offered for her father’s killer if she’s to keep their homestead and take care of her sisters. That means she needs an expert tracker's help. Gideon Hartley has the skill, but the handsome trail guide also has a troubling secret…
Gideon has spent years trying to numb his pain with whiskey. Little by little, their quest—and Willa’s belief in him—is restoring the sense of purpose he thought he’d lost. Journeying into the heart of danger, they’ll have to face down the past together if they hope to protect their future…

Every once in a while I long to read a good Western romance, and this one hit the spot. Willa Malone is a strong heroine, determined, and fiercely independent. She's tough yet vulnerable. Gideon is a broken man, running from his past, escaping through the whiskey bottle. He is charming and a renowned trail guide, but he has lost his way. Together, these two characters, with their realistically portrayed problems, will discover that with the right person, one can overcome even the most difficult personal trials.
This book had it all: frontier life with all its tough themes, clean romance with a touch of faith, flawed characters the reader could root for, danger and adventure, and a good storyline and plot. It was the perfect escapism for the long winter nights and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The author writes well and the characters were well developed and believable. And I just love that cover.
I am glad to have discovered this author and I would definitely read her again. If you like Western romances this one is not to be missed.
