The last thing I expect when I return to my hometown in Colorado is to be accused of stealing by the new sheriff. Drayton Saunders is big, blunt - and totally beddable! But I'm back to take care of my sick mom, not get all hot and bothered over the local sheriff, no matter how unexpectedly sweet and sexy he turns out to be. There's a reason I left Garland three years ago, vowing never to return - but can the love of my sexy sheriff convince me to stay - for good?

My only priority is ensuring the safety of my residents, which leaves no time for love. Besides, an horrific tour in Yemen has left me with too much baggage and too many scars for most women. My heart has been flatlining for years - until five-and-a-half feet of curvy perfection by the name of Daisy Jenkins walks into my dad's bar and breathes new life into the dormant muscle in my chest. But Daisy has scars of her own - scars that sent her running from Garland three years ago. She's used to being let down by most people in her life - but she's about to discover that I'm not most people. I just hope my love will be enough to persuade her to stay and build a new life here - with me.
