Overview

USA Today bestselling author Jo Goodman delivers a thrilling tale of small town greed that may have big time consequences—unless two strangers open their hearts to a highly unconventional arrangement. . .

Rachel Bailey may seem like just a beautiful newcomer to most of Reidsville, Colorado, but Sheriff Wyatt Cooper knows she's much more. Through a twist of fate, Rachel is the inheritor of a very valuable commodity: control of the railway that keeps the isolated mining town connected to the world. That is, she will be, if she agrees to the surprising stipulation in her benefactor's will—that she marry Wyatt.

Rachel has no choice: refusing the marriage could put all of Reidsville in the hands of an outsider—and not just any outsider, but the cruel tyrant she has come here to escape. Yet living with Wyatt will be her greatest challenge. For he has a tempting way about him that makes Rachel forget theirs is a marriage in name only—until her frightening past shows up to remind them exactly how much they have at stake. . .

In 1882 in Reidsville, Colorado, Sheriff Wyatt Cooper takes his job seriously to protect the townsfolk. He insures everyone is safe including newcomer Rachel Bailey, who he knows is a creature of habit as every male in town knows when they watch her walk the street to her establishment early in the morning. However, no one was prepared when Clinton Maddox dies and shockingly leaves the valuable railroad spur to Rachel, which places her in danger as others want the town's lifeline. Wyatt and Rachel agree to wed in a marriage of convenience so he can keep her safe. However, the townsfolk are euphoric and want to celebrate the nuptials. The only ones not ecstatic are Wyatt and Rachel. When her past arrives with two goals to destroy Rachel and claim the spur, Wyatt realizes protecting her has become personal. This is an entertaining Americana romance starring an intriguing heroine and a wolf of a sheriff who sings the refrain from I'm Not in Love. The exciting story line contains a strong cast who bring to life the small town that would die without the spur. Jo Goodman provides an enjoyable western romance. Harriet Klausner

This is a delightful book! The story is fast-paced, the main characters are in turn passionate and funny; and all the characters have a way to make you laugh. I would have loved to live in that town. I read this book in 1 day. I think that this book is one of Ms Goodman best.

Couldn't put this book down. From the first page I was hooked. The characters are well-drawn and the dialog is excellent. This is how a story should be written
