Bloodstained land. Harrowing secrets. Can a wrongly accused rancher solve a brutal crime before he’s locked away forever?
Rural Sacramento, 1870. Caleb Stewart can’t wait to be a family man. After battling natural disasters and legal challenges to secure his land claim, he’s finally free to court the French beauty next door. But he’s forced to push his feelings aside when his own hacienda becomes the scene of a suspicious double murder.
Madeleine Laurent hopes a fresh start in America will help her forget painful memories. But even though her homicidal husband fled and vanished, she’s still legally bound to a man who’s likely dead. So she’s shocked when he reappears with a false name, stirring up trouble as the local lawyer’s hired muscle.
Threatened into silence, she bites her tongue despite knowing that the truth of her husband’s identity could clear her kindly neighbor of blame. And as the trumped-up case grows, Caleb fears he’s running out of time to discover the real killer before he loses his ranch and his freedom.
Can Caleb and Madeleine unmask the true culprit and build a new future together?
