The small town of Savage Wells is barely big enough for the people who call it home; it certainly isn't big enough for more than one sheriff.
Yet when famed lawman Cade O'Brien rides into town, he finds he's not the only man ready to take on the job. What's more, one of his competitors is a woman.
Paisley Bell loves her town and the eccentric people in it. She's been the job to anyone else. Not only does she love the work, but she also needs the income to take care of her ailing father.
It's a true battle of the sexes, and sparks fly between the two as Cade and Paisley banter and boast, neither one ready to acknowledge the attraction they have for each other. But when Paisley's former beau shows up, along with a band of bank robbers, Savage Wells is suddenly faced with the kind of peril that only a sheriff can manage. Who will be man enough—or woman enough—to step up, claim the badge, and save the town?
