USA Today bestselling author Jo Goodman delivers a thrilling tale of small town greed that may have big time consequences--unless two strangers open their hearts to a highly unconventional arrangement. . .
Rachel Bailey may seem like just a beautiful newcomer to most of Reidsville, Colorado, but Sheriff Wyatt Cooper knows she's much more. Through a twist of fate, Rachel is the inheritor of a very valuable commodity: control of the railway that keeps the isolated mining town connected to the world. That is, she will be, if she agrees to the surprising stipulation in her benefactor's will--that she marry Wyatt.
Rachel has no choice: refusing the marriage could put all of Reidsville in the hands of an outsider--and not just any outsider, but the cruel tyrant she has come here to escape. Yet living with Wyatt will be her greatest challenge. For he has a tempting way about him that makes Rachel forget theirs is a marriage in name only--until her frightening past shows up to remind them exactly how much they have at stake. . .
