Appaloosa Pass Ranch
A Texas lawman comes face-to-face with his past and meets the future: his son
First, someone tries to kill him. Then an achingly familiar beauty from his past drops the bombshell of a lifetime: he has a son. Two years ago, sheriff Jericho Crockett's attraction to Laurel Tate became a brief but intense affairuntil an unsolved murder made them enemies. Now, with their son's life hanging in the balance, the Texas lawman must put aside the pain of Laurel's long-held secret in order to keep the little boy safe. But as working together causes powerful feelings to resurface, Jericho isn't about to walk away from being a father to his son
and maybe even a husband to Laurel.
