Benjamin Lansing is on his way to paradise with a short detour to the middle of nowhere—Fort Victory, Colorado Territory. His brother left some unfinished business when he died and Ben aims to get to the bottom of things quickly and get out. He has no intention of allowing a pretty little distraction like Miranda Chase to keep him from his goal. Even if that spark of life in her eyes threatens to melt the layers of reserve he’s taken a lifetime to build.
It took running away from home to help Miranda Chase discover what she really wanted—a settled life with a steady man who would treat her right. She has no time for a smooth talking city slicker like Ben Lansing, even if he does make her heart race like a wild stallion. Only a fool would try to lasso and break a man like Ben. Or a woman foolish enough to follow her heart . . .
