Good intentions gone wrong tore them apart.

Murder brought them back together.

Charity Bishop is a small-town deputy determined to be the best law officer she can be—which had better be pretty damned good, considering her family is a bunch of crooks. When a local woman is murdered, and the sister of Charity’s high school sweetheart confesses to the crime, Charity accepts that finding a killer means partnering with the man who threatens everything she’s worked for. The man who took her heart with him when he left town twelve years earlier.

That man is Grady West, a struggling single father who finds it hard to forgive his high school lover for arresting his sister. But while Grady battles to prove his sister’s innocence and Charity battles to keep him at arm’s length, he finds himself falling in love all over again. Despite his determination to return to the city, Charity’s resolve to stay and run for sheriff, and a desperate killer’s plans to boost the body count, Grady realizes he has no choice but to convince Charity they deserve to be together.
