U.S. Marshal Jedidiah Brown knew Susannah Calhoun was trouble from the moment he met her, but he certainly never expected her to end up accused of murder. When he arrives to escort her to her trial in Denver, he finds the blonde beauty is just as captivating as he remembers—and just as desirable. But he’s determined to resist her wiles and do his duty to keep her safe...no matter how much he longs to taste those sweet lips again.
Susannah still hasn’t forgiven Jedidiah for leaving her without a word a year ago, and she certainly isn’t happy to see him now that she’s been accused of a crime she didn’t commit. The frustrating man doesn’t seem to believe in her innocence, and he’s immune to her charms to boot! So she does the only thing she can—she stages a jailbreak.
But she can’t escape Jedidiah, and their trip to Denver becomes a race to survive as they are pursued by enemies who want Susannah dead before she ever makes it to court. Only Jedidiah can keep her alive, but the more time they spend together, the more they realize they’re fighting for more than clearing Susannah’s name—they’re fighting their hearts as well.
