A significant inheritance comes with an indecent proposal in this Western romance by the USA Today bestselling author of In Want of a Wife.
Reidsville, Colorado, 1882. Rachel Bailey may seem like just a beautiful newcomer, but Sheriff Wyatt Cooper knows she's much more. Through a twist of fate, Rachel is the inheritor of a very valuable commodity: control of the railway that keeps the isolated mining town connected to the world. That is, she will be, if she agrees to the surprising stipulation in her benefactor's will—that she marry Wyatt.
Rachel has no choice: refusing the marriage could put all of Reidsville in the hands of the very man she has come here to escape. Yet living with Wyatt will be her greatest challenge. For he has a tempting way about him that makes Rachel forget their marriage is in name only. And when her frightening past shows up, they suddenly realize exactly how much they have at stake . . .
