#1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller returns to the Arizona frontier in a tale of passion, adventure and dangerous promises

Undercover agent Gideon Yarbro is renowned for stopping outlaws almost before they commit a crime. But now he must stop a wedding—despite the bride’s resistance. Lydia Fairmont will lose everything if she doesn’t honor her betrothal to a heartless banker. Unless she marries someone else instead…whether it’s a love match or not.

Determined to honor his own decade-old promise to help Lydia, Gideon carries her off to Stone Creek and makes her his reluctant wife. Forget a honeymoon for “show”—not with a vengeful ex-fiancé on their trail and a hired gun on the loose. But there just might be hope for the marriage…and two hearts meant for each other.

    " Can you say smutty-smuttville? I was expecting about the same amount of smut as the other three, but I was wrong. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandy | 1/29/2014

    " This was a good book! One of my thrift store finds. I just wish that I knew before hand that it was part of a series. And I could've read the other Yarbro brother's stories first. And IN ORDER. LOVED Gideon. LOVED Lydia. LOVED Gideon's older brother's Wyatt and Rowdy. And their wives, (Sarah and Lark), and their kid's and families. Helga and Lydia's twin spinster aunt's, Mittie and Millie were FUNNY!. LOVED the addition of Wyatt & Sarah's dog, Pardner. And later, Snippet, the abandonded puppy that Lydia found and rescued. And later became her's & Gideon's dog. MY one and ONLY complaint was all the mine stuff. Which is why I gave this book 4 stars, instead of the full 5. My favorite part of the book was the epilogue. SO SWEET! I'm really getting into these Historical romances. "
