Chance brought Miranda and Jake together. Now, the strength of true love is tested against a past that he can't leave behind.
Miranda Hayes's life was changed the day she faced down Jake Harkner…and walked away with the dark and broken heart of the infamous outlaw. Their fates have been intertwined ever since. Hunted by the law, fleeing across a dangerous land, their desperate love flourished despite countless sorrows. Now, twenty-six years later, their family has finally found some measure of peace…balanced on the knife's edge of danger.
Jake has spent his years as a U.S. Marshal atoning for sins, bringing law to the land he once terrorized. But no matter how hard he fights the demons of his brutal past, the old darkness still threatens to consume him. Only Miranda keeps the shadows at bay. But when outlaws looking for revenge strike a fatal blow, Jake risks losing the one woman who saw past his hard exterior and to the man inside.
He always knew there'd be the devil to pay. He just never realized he might not be the one to bear the ultimate price.
