“Every book of Shirleen's never fails to draw me in and make it impossible to put down until I devour it!”

Brodie MacLaren has a dream. He yearns to wear the star—bring the guilty to justice and protect those who are innocent. In his mind, guilty means guilty, even when it includes a beautiful woman who sets his body on edge.

Maggie King lives a nightmare, wanting nothing more than to survive each day and recapture the life stolen from her. Each day she wakes and prays for escape. Taking the one chance she may ever have, Maggie lashes out, unprepared for the rising panic as the man people believe to be her husband lies motionless at her feet.

Deciding innocence and guilt isn’t his job.

Brodie’s orderly, black and white world spins as her story of kidnapping and abuse unfold. The fact nothing adds up as well as his growing attraction to Maggie cause doubts the stoic lawman can’t afford to embrace.

Can a lifetime of believing in absolute right and wrong change in a heartbeat?

Maggie has traded one form of captivity for another. Thoughts of escape consume her, even as feelings for the handsome, unyielding lawman grow.

As events unfold, Brodie must fight more than his attraction. Someone is after Maggie—a real threat who is out to silence her.

He’s challenged on all fronts—until he takes a gamble that could change his life or destroy his heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great historical romance. The MacLaren's had a large ranch and it was expected that the children would stay and work it so when Brody MacLaren became the local sheriff instead, it didn't go over well, especially with his father. Even though Brody hadn't been sheriff long he'd had cattle rustling, saloon brawls and petty thefts to keep him busy. He never expected to deal with a murder so when Maggie King walked in his office saying she thought killed her husband, Brody was shocked. He always followed the law and wanted to do the right thing so he went back to the cabin where she said she killed her husband to make sure he was actually dead but the body was missing. After finding him in a shallow grave Brody had to put Maggie in jail for murder. Maggie had been kidnapped by some men when she was 18 years old then she was sold. To make things more complicated, the dead man wasn't actually her husband but the one who bought her and kept her captive. When Brody heard the whole story of Maggie's life with the dead man, he was determined to find out the truth behind the death. I enjoyed this historical romance. It had an unusual storyline and great characters. I can't imagine the horrible life Maggie had after being kidnapped. Then it got worse! After escaping from her captor and doing what she though was the right thing by confessing to possibly murdering him, she gets put in jail. Brodie was a wonderful man and terrific sheriff. I liked the way he went beyond his responsibilities by trying to find out what really happened to Maggie's "husband" even though he had done his job by putting the confessed murderer in jail. I really enjoyed this historical romance and I'm glad I got a copy in exchange for my honest review.
