Deacon Brannock has struggled his whole life to amount to something. But when he finally saves up enough to buy the saloon that'll put him on the map, he's immediately challenged by the Temperance Movement. He only wants to make an honest living, but there's no stopping the Movement's most determined firebrand: Grace Legend.
And after one look at the fierce beauty, he's not even sure he wants to.
Grace has always had her pet crusades, but she sees the Temperance Movement as the one thing that will bring her the deep sense of purpose she's been missing. Yet when the owner of the new saloon turns out to be a kind and considerate man with warm eyes and a smile that leaves her breathless, she can't help but wonder whether they could have a future together...if only they could find a way to stop being enemies long enough to become so much more.
