Shane McCall has dedicated his life to rising above the smear his father put on his last name. As sheriff of Marietta, Montana, his reputation is finally above reproach and he aims to keep it that way. A difficult task made impossible since he made the mistake of kissing Silver Adams. Courting a saloon owner is not Shane’s idea of respectability, but when his brother comes to town and turns her head, Shane realizes the only arms Silver belongs in are his.

Silver Adams has stared down many challenges, but when she moves to Montana, she finally has independence and a sense of pride. With her close circle of friends and a successful saloon, the only thing missing from her life is love. When Silver finds everything she has been looking for in the arms of an upstanding lawman, she feels her dreams have come true until her disreputable past threatens all Silver holds dear, and now Silver must make the hardest decision of her life—telling Shane the truth.
