Wondering ‘What should I read next?’ Read Lawfully Charmedby Kate Cambridge.
Sullivan ’Sully’ Clarke is the sheriff in Bareglen Creek, Texas, and facing one of the most dangerous and challenging manhunts of his career — may be the decade — when he learns that he’s been ‘hired’ to protect a socialite arriving from Philadelphia. He doesn’t have the time or interest, but her father’s influence reaches far and wide. He has no choice.
Claire is a strong-willed, independent woman traveling from Philadelphia to Bareglen Creek with two purposes: to comfort her sister after the recent loss of her husband, and ultimately convince her sister and brother to return home to Philadelphia — where they belong. She’s also running from a proposal from Edward Woodbury, one of the most sought-after bachelors in Philadelphia — well, sought after by every woman but her, that is.
Sheriff Sully has preconceived notions about Claire, and annoyed doesn’t even begin to cover how he feels about being tasked with protecting her. After Claire arrives, he finds himself creating a list of all the things he admires about her, and he’s surprised by the fact he wants to get to know her better. He wants to add more items to the ever-growing list of things he admires, but she’ll leave Bareglen Creek in less than four weeks unless he can give her a reason to stay.
Claire finds herself intrigued by the handsome and intelligent Sheriff, yet chagrined that her father tasked him with her protection. She’s quite capable of taking care of herself—why won’t anyone listen to the fact that she doesn’t need a man for that?
Or does she?
When danger strikes at the heart of Bareglen Creek, and events begin swirling out of control, Claire wonders if she’s made a mistake. Her immediate attraction to Sheriff Sully shocks her, and she has no idea what to do with feelings awakened inside her, let alone with the danger that threatens.
Will Sheriff Sully and Claire discover that some things in life are worth fighting for — and potentially risking your life for — before it is too late?
Join Sheriff Sully and Claire on a whirlwind journey that includes danger, intrigue, kidnappings, Indians, cowboys, chemistry, romance, and more.
