Ex-Navy SEAL, Rob Hyde returns from Afghanistan and discovers his father has a gambling problem and has lost the ranch that’s been in the Hyde family since the late 1800s due to unpaid taxes. Even worse, his father blames Rob for enlisting after 9/11 and deserting him and the ranch. It’s true that 9/11 changed Rob’s world view. He enlisted and never looked back. Still, he’s never forgotten his high school love, Marianne. Seeing the woman she is now rocks his world. But he won’t let an old flame deter him from righting more than a few wrongs, even if he has to break the law to do it.
Despite her dark, slim beauty, Marianne Fitzhugh is a rancher through and through. She’s tough, and not even her father’s ill health will keep her from standing up to the sheriff who would like nothing better than to get his hands on their land. She’s heard a rumor that her former neighbor and high school love Rob is back in the county, but she’s yet to run into him. Will he still inite the same passions he did then? She’s heard other rumors, too. Is it possible her old beau is on the wrong side of the law?
Passions may be long denied, but the attraction is undeniable. While their fiery passion threatens to engulf them, they vow to fight the local corrupted officials…if the sheriff doesn’t arrest them first.
