Now she was in a dilemma. Joan’s husband Harris had gotten into another fight, but this time, it’d be his last. Now he was buried in the field next to their run-down shack, leaving her destitute with their two little boys. Things couldn’t possibly get worse, or so she thought.
But Joan can’t even depend on the one thing Harris left behind: his silver mine, for his partner, Pete Tracy, claims she must marry to inherit her share. Downcast and defeated, Joan leaves her shack for Silver City, a mining boom town to the south, and knocks on the door of the only person who can help her.
Lonely Mac Walley, though saddened over the death of his brother, is elated to have a woman and children living in his home, which makes the decision to marry Joan a simple one. He’d always admired the strong, beautiful woman his brother had married and loved his nephews dearly. She quickly secures a place in his heart, and Mac is determined to win hers. But when a local gang of outlaws and a roving band of Indians take him away from home, can their precarious marriage of convenience blossom into something deeper?
Find out in this heartwarming sweet romance set in a time when the American west was still wild and unruly.
