Sloan Harper spent five long, dehumanizing years in a federal penitentiary for a crime he did not commit. During that time, all he had to help him make it through the torturous days and the watchful nights was the thoughts of revenge he aimed to take on the man responsible for his predicament. That revenge would come in the form of his enemy's beloved daughter, Peyton. Kidnapping the virginal spinster, taking her far away from her doting father, and ruining her with his bastard child was all Harper could think about.
Peyton Dalton has spent her entire life wishing for her own home and a husband with whom to share it: neither of which her father ever intends she have. When the handsome outlaw waylays the stage upon which she's traveling and takes her hostage, she begins to realize she should have been more careful for what she wished.
Under a blazing Texan sun, unexpected love will find Harper and Peyton but her father, Jacob Dalton, has only hatred awaiting them at the end of the trail and a bullet with Harper's name on it.
