Has fate given her the man of her dreams…or the short end of the stick?

No one steps on Archer land. Not if they value their life. But when
Meredith Hayes overhears a plot to burn the Archer brothers off their
ranch, a long-standing debt compels her to take the risk.

Years of constant vigilance hardens a man. Yet when Travis Archer
comes across a female trespasser with the same vivid blue eyes as the
courageous young girl he once aided, he can’t bring himself to send her
away. And when an act of sacrifice leaves her injured and her reputation
in shreds, gratitude and guilt prompt him to attempt to rescue her once

Despite the fact that Travis is no longer the gallant youth Meredith
once dreamed about, she vows to stand by his side. But will love ever be
hers? Or will Travis always see her as merely a short-straw bride?
