Cortland Enders has one chance to escape prison: Accept the deal brokered by the widow, Sienna Harris, and agree to a distasteful business arrangement disguised as a marriage. In a cunning maneuver, Sienna prompts Cort to attend a local dance, supposedly to find a companion for her waning days. Lark Garrin captivates him, even though she is out of his reach. Lark is running from danger, and she believes Cort to be the marrying kind. Sparks fly when she discovers his offer isn't what she expects. The two are drawn closer, even as he is bound by his fidelity, and she to her secrets. Violence from her past threatens to destroy everyone, until Cort resurrects his gunslinging skills to save the woman he loves. The story is rich in characters who brave the tumultuous plains.
