Montana has always been in Sheriff Cole James's blood. Nothing--and no one--could make him walk away from his home. Not even Ronnie, his best friend and the woman he'd let leave even though he loved her. But now, six years after she took off for big-city life, she's back in Redemption temporarily to help her injured father and brother. That is, unless Cole can convince her to stay in town--and in his heart--permanently.
When Veronica "Ronnie" McCloud discovers that the fearless lawman who rescued her family is Cole, she knows it won't be long before her secret comes out: Cole is her little boy's father. Will the truth tear them apart for good, or will it give them a chance to become a family?
