The life of a gambler is not an easy one and Jason Strathorne was staring at his escape to a real life in the center of the table. The big pot was enought to buy him the ranch he longed for but the man across the table and a beautiful woman stood between him and that dream. He found out that winning the money was one thing but keeping it, and his life, was another. A knife in the back and the cold water of the Mississippi finally took him away from his life of gambling and into a new one.
He had to survive the betrayal of two other women before he could think about getting his ranch but the west opened up a new life and love for him, until the past caught up with him. Lisa Bassett was unquestionably the most beautiful girl in Cheyenne and he wanted her as bad as he wanted his ranch, but circumstances seemed to always get in his way.
Someone was trying to kill him and he didn't know why so when the job as Sheriff fell in his lap he took it. Now he was at target with a badge pinned on his chest trying to walk a tight rope between the cattlemen and the sheepmen. It was a explosive situation with a short fuse and when the explosion hit he was the only one standing in the middle of the shooting.
