She's loved him for as long as she can remember.
But can she trust her heart to a man haunted by constant danger?
Shiloh, Oregon, April 1887
Victoria Snyder, adopted when she was only days old, pastes on a smile for her mama's wedding day, but inside she's all atremble. Lawman Rocky Jordan is back home. And this time he's got a bullet hole in his shoulder and enough audacity to come calling. Since tragedy seems to strike those she cares for with uncanny frequency, she wants nothing to do with a man who could be killed in the line of duty like her father.
But when an orphan-train arrives at the Salem depot, Victoria is irresistibly drawn toward the three remaining “unlovable” children…and stunned by a proposal that will change all of their lives forever.
Can she risk her heart, and her future happiness, on someone she might lose at a moment's notice?
Two stubborn hearts. A most unusual proposal. Persevering love.
Step into a day when outlaws ran free, the land was wild, and guns blazed at the drop of a hat.

On the mark of how different women think from men. She so reminded me of myself 20 years ago. But with time and prayers come wisdom.
