#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey's passionate
new tale about a gunfighter running from his past who finds his future
when he escorts a beautiful outlaw to her hanging. Featuring one of Lindsey's most intriguing heroes: the dangerous and mysterious Degan
Grant from “One Heart to Win.”
With his work in Montana completed now that the Callahan-Warren feud has ended in marriage rather than bloodshed, Degan Grant sets out for
California because it is far away from the home he wants to forget--until the US Marshal who saved his life calls in a favor. All Degan has to do is apprehend three
outlaws on the marshal's list and turn them over to the law. Easy
enough, he figures, for a man no one wants to tangle with.
But then a bold young woman crosses his path. Maxine grew up so pretty
and attracted so much unwanted attention in her Texas hometown that
events spiraled out of control. She will try anything to escape the handsome, enigmatic gunfighter who intends to turn her over to a corrupt
sheriff who will hang her instead of putting her on trial.
