For the past six years, the residents of Nowhere, California have tolerated Lucy Hubbard as their self-appointed "lawwoman." She stepped into her father's shoes with duty and determination – ignoring the skeptical whispers of the townsfolk. But these days, aside front locking up the local drunk, the once booming gold town doesn't have much call for a sheriff. Until the Gaston brothers ride into town, and Lucy finds herself outgunned, outnumbered, and in real trouble.
That's nothing compared to the storm of emotions that's unleashed when Luke McKenna comes back to town. He saves the day and her skin, but he's soon heating Lucy's blood to the boiling point. Then Luke strikes gold – and suddenly Nowhere is somewhere again. But it's the passionate yearning of one woman's heart that ignites a fever the likes of which the town has never seen!
