Everyone in Parsons considers hotel owner Claire Daines a respectable woman, until she shocks the community when she rushes into a saloon in her nightclothes to confess to an inebriated lawman. "Sheriff, I shot my husband."
Is it an accident, as she claims? Or is it murder?
When Claire sneaks out of town on a southbound train, Sheriff Frank Garrity follows, determined to unravel the widow's subterfuge in spite of the desire he nurtures in his heart. When he catches up to her in a lawless town, he is nearly killed guarding her life.
Frank must return Claire to stand trial. He promises to find a way to save her if she will trust him with the truth. But when the truth finally comes out, it will shatter the upright sheriff's notions about duty, justice...and love.
