Addison couldn’t believe what was happening. The man she’d trusted had betrayed her whole family. Her father. She’d thought he was everything! His arrest for embezzlement left her family basically homeless. Her mother retreated to her own little world and couldn’t be reached.
She decided to take charge and find a way to survive for herself and her younger brother. The plan she devised landed them in Derby, Kansas. Imagine her horror when she found herself married to a stinky, inconsiderate man who didn’t seem to be what he’d claimed in his letters.
Sheriff Paul Newton had a mission to find a local criminal. He was searching high and low. He found the scoundrel in the most unlikely place.
Through all her troubles, Addison wondered if she’d ever find a man she could trust. A man who wouldn’t let her down. A man who wouldn’t sully her reputation simply by being associated with him.
Read how Addison finally takes charge in a way that makes her independent and competent on her own. But will love ever come for her?
