Let New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods sweep you away to Texas with this acclaimed tale of bending the rules… Texas-born-and-bred lawman Justin Adams had always been a by-the-book kind of guy. Until one day the deputy caught a petty thief in the act of stealing a bottle of baby medicine. And when Justin looked into the imploring eyes of desperate single mother Patsy Langhorn–not to mention those of her feverish little boy–he decided to bend the rules, just a little. Patsy Langhorn was wary of men in general, and one who'd sworn to uphold the law should have had her running for cover. But somehow this man had her wondering if maybe the time had come to stop running–if maybe, finally, he was what she'd waited her whole life to find.
