She’s always lived on the right side of the law…
An outcast, Juliette Davenport fled to Promise Creek after being accused of robbing banks.

They’ve become her family, but now they’ve struck the mother lode, and Juliette needs a bodyguard.
He’s spent most of his life on the wrong side of the law…
Devon MacAllister has lived a hard life. After getting caught stealing, he was offered a deal: go to jail or clean-up his act and use his skills to catch criminals. He changed his ways and now protects innocents. But when his latest client turns out to be the sister of a notorious bank robber, a man Devon once worked with, things get complicated.
Juliette is firm in her plans for self-reliance, and Devon agrees to help her however he can. He’s determined to guard her, but as her intelligence and fiery spirit break through his shields, his job of protecting her turns into a need. When news of the mine spreads, bringing danger neither is prepared for, Devon and Juliette realize love is the greatest risk of all.
