Gracie has spent her life running from her problems. This time, it’s a matter of life and death.
With nothing but five dollars, a train ticket, and the wedding dress she’s wearing, Gracie Lister escapes with her daughter to the West Texas country where her family fell apart years ago. There, Lieutenant Michael Wayne—devoted single father, dedicated soldier—gives Gracie the hiding place she needs, and a job caring for his two children. Michael and Gracie aren’t looking for love, but it finds them right away.
The couple doesn’t exactly see eye-to-eye, though. A vengeful druglord has put a price on Michael’s head, and he’s determined to face the enemy head-on. When Gracie’s ex-fiancé catches up to her, her impulse is to flee the danger … and the father she lacks the courage to confront.
Will Michael and Gracie find the strength they need in each other to protect their family and the home they’ve created?
