Sheriff Hayes Carson hated Sundays. It was nothing against religion, or church or anything spiritual. He hated Sundays because he always spent them alone. He didn't have a girlfriend. He'd dated a couple of women around Jacobsville, Texas, but those dates had been few and far between. He hadn't had a serious relationship since he was just out of the military, when he got engaged to a woman who tossed him over for somebody richer. Well, he had dated Ivy Conley before she married his best friend, Stuart York. He'd had feelings for her, too, but it was not returned on her part. Besides, he thought ruefully, there was Andy.

He'd been shot twice since he became sheriff, and he'd been sheriff for seven years. He was good at his job. He was reelected without even a runoff. No criminal had ever escaped him.

Bobby Carson had been the only family Hayes had left in the world. A long, tall and serious Texan, Hayes has always suspected Minette Raynor had something to do with Bobby''s death, that the bright-eyed blonde gave his brother the drugs that killed him. As far as Hayes is concerned, neither her looks nor anything else will stand in the way of him righting this grievous wrong.
Minette can''t get handsome Hayes off her mind, or off her back. But then Hayes gets shot, and the only one who can help him heal is Minette. Soon she finds herself in very close quarters, indeed, with the breathtaking sheriff. Then the tables turn—and Minette finds herself in great danger, and Hayes is the only one who can rescue her. Can she count on Hayes believing the truth—and saving her life?
