Can a vengeful cowboy’s desire for an enchanting black prostitute make him forget the man he’s come to kill?
Gladys don’t need a man. She’s a soiled dove who’s sick of selling her body and wants to sample a new life. So when mysterious Ellis Kincaid rescues her from being dragged by henchmen, he’s an attractive distraction she doesn’t want.
You’d think saving a woman from being beaten would warm her up to you but Ellis learns it takes more than chivalry to win Gladys’ heart. Why he cares is anyone’s guess. Ellis has bigger things on his mind. He’s come to Clear Creek County to settle a score that’s haunted him for over 20 years. He can’t let even Gladys' sexy drawl and luscious hips knock him off his game.
Gladys and Ellis are two misguided souls running from love but when Cupid shoots his arrow, you better get out of the way or you’re going to get hit.
Tropes: western, interracial, revenge, triangle, opposites attract, afraid to commit, age gap, scars, tortured hero
