#1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller returns to Stone Creek, where secrets have a way of coming to light …

Where does an outlaw go when he’s ready to turn straight? For Wyatt Yarbro, reformed rustler and train robber, Stone Creek is his place of redemption. And lovely Sarah Tamlin is the perfect angel to help him clean up his act.

But Sarah keeps a dark secret behind her prim and proper facade, even as her heart is lost to charming, sexy Wyatt. When a vengeful enemy prepares to unleash havoc on their peaceful town, Wyatt and Sarah will discover that they can’t hide from the past. To win the fight, they must believe in something they never trusted before—the hope of tomorrow.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Welcome back, Yarbros, those bad-boy outlaws turned into heroes! But it’s Miller’s intrinsic understanding of the West that is the real hero of her novels. Her characters are true to their nature, the era, and the place. This story creates lasting memories of soul-searing redemption and the belief in goodness and hope.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “Miller’s third Stone Creek novel gets as hot as the noontime desert. In early twentieth-century Arizona territory, Wyatt Yarbro leaves behind his life as an outlaw as he temporarily replaces his brother as the deputy marshal of Stone Creek and sets out to woo Sarah Tamlin… Miller’s portrayal of Sarah as a strong, independent woman sets this novel apart from customary tales of the damsel in distress…Well-developed, personable characters and a handful of loose ends will leave readers anticipating future installments.”

    " Living through the experience of a cattle stampede, outlaw Wyatt Yarbro realizes he has a second chance a going straight. He leaves behind the gang he was riding with and returns to Stony Creek, Arizona, where his brother Rowdy is sheriff. Rowdy himself is a reformed outlaw, married and happily settled. On his first evening in town, Wyatt meets Sarah Tamlin, daughter of the town's bank owner. Each is immediately taken with the other. Each has their own dark secret. Wyatt is made deputy sheriff when his brother leaves to hunt a vigilante group. And Sarah's ex-lover, Charles Langstreet arrives in Stony Creek with his 10 year old son and threatening to take over the bank. Sarah runs the bank with her father who, unbeknownst to others, is in early stages of dementia. During a robbery, Wyatt shoots down 3 men in self-defense. One of the young men is the brother of Billy Justice, from Wyatt's old gang. The pressure is on: Wyatt's fear of Rowdy finding out his part in a train robbery and knowing Billy Justice will be coming to town seeking revenge. And Sarah trying to find a way to keep Langstreet from taking the bank and revealing her most personal secret that could threaten her relationship with Wyatt. Life in the Old West was hard and gritty, but Ms. Miller always shows there was redemption and happiness for those who never gave up. Her historical westerns leave you cheering the good guys and applauding when the hero and heroine find their happy ending. "

    " I thought she did a great job with this book. The story line was interesting and the characters were people you'd like to meet.
