Deputy Matthias Garnett vowed to protect his best friend’s sister from a gang of outlaws set on vengeance. Turns out, it’s not just the gang he has to worry about. There’s also the unforgiving winter weather, wild animals, crossing frigid rivers, and possibly most dangerous of all, the way his insides react to this feisty woman riding beside him.
Kat Carlton is no stranger to grief. She’s lost two sets of parents and her brother has just been shot. Now, her protector keeps coming up with one harebrained scheme after another to keep her safe, including dressing her up as a boy and dragging her from the Nueces to the Rio Grande. Getting to safety may spare her life, but will she lose her heart in the process?
With time running out and the devils on their tail, can this deputy keep his promise?
