Lily McAllen has known nothing but hardship and rejection. Her brother, the only person she can lean on, takes a job at the Miller ranch. Now with no ally, she is alone, confined, and vulnerable. She becomes desperate to get away…by any means necessary.
Despite his best intentions, Daniel Hayworth is drawn into a fatal mishap. He feels responsible. And is prepared to do whatever it takes to ensure Lily is cared for…even if that means proposing marriage.
Complicating matters, Geronimo and his raiding band terrorize the surrounding areas. Troubles mount and tensions challenge the growing attraction between Dan and Lily.
Will they make it to the church? Or find themselves victims of lies, disillusionment, or the ire of an Apache rebel?
Read an Excerpt:
She leaned into Dan’s arm, her head on his shoulder. “I just don’t know what to do, you know?”
Dan turned his face toward hers, his lips nearly brushing her forehead.
“I can’t believe he’s gone. Really gone.” Her voice cracked into a whimper.
More tears would come.
What did she need? What did he want when faced with death?
Dan slid an arm around her. Now she was drawn to his chest. And he embraced her from the side.
As much as she shook, she soon settled into his arms. Did she find some measure of comfort there? In the arms of the man responsible?
He closed his eyes. This wasn’t right. But could he take away what peace she found there because of his selfish desire to share the truth?
No, he would be strong and let her pull from his strength. For now.
The truth would come later.
Dan glanced at the house. How might they appear to her father? It was not appropriate for him to be embracing a woman who was not his sister or his betrothed. Or for him to find such enjoyment having her in his arms.
As he shifted his focus back to her, he saw a curtain move. Had someone been watching?
