Washington Territory, 1871
Kate Flanders is set on marrying Cole Turner and saving him from the gun-toting life he’s been leading. Kate’s loved Cole since they were children, growing up in very different families. Now that he’s back in Three Bridges, this may be her last chance to make him hers and she’s got a plan.
Cole Turner is many things, most of them bad, but he’s not about to take advantage of the one person in his life who actually saw some good in him. Kate’s fantasy about marrying him is just that, a fantasy. Not that he doesn’t want her, he does. But he’s not about to ruin her life, because that’s what being married to him would do.
One determined female, one stubborn cowboy...anything can happen.
