Just trying to deliver some horses to a customer, Brett Liberty suddenly finds himself being shot at and accused of being a horse thief for no other reason than the fact that he is half Iroquois. Finding himself locked in jail and about to be hung, he finds a bright spot in the form of Rayna Harper.
Rayna does what she can to help Brett when he is brought into the jail with a gunshot wound, but being a prisoner herself, there is not much else she can do for the man that is destined to hang but offer him comfort in his final hours.
When Brett's brother rescue him from certain death, he demands that Rayna come with them. As they spend more time with one another, there is no denying the attraction they feel for each other. But Brett won't let Rayna get involved with him, when all he does is bring trouble to his door because of his heritage.
Can Rayna make Brett understand that it doesn't matter to her, that he is all that does?
I really enjoyed this story and after reading the other two stories in the trilogy, I'm glad that Brett got his HEA. As much as he did interact with his "brothers", he was still a loner. He isolated himself on his land and he needed a good woman to make him see that he was worth something. He had always figured that because of him being half Iroquois that he was given up and no one wanted him. I was pleasantly surprised by some of the history we learn about Brett and that also plays into part the changes we see in him.
This was a great ending to a wonderful trilogy. If you've not read it yet, what are you waiting for, go out and get it now!!
I'm excited to see what Broday had in store for us next!
