A generations-old feud is about to come to a headâ€”and the stakes couldnâ€™t be higher with two hearts on the lineâ€”in this novel set in the small town of Harmony, Texas.
Cord McMillan gave up his freedom at eighteen when he went to jail for a crime he didnâ€™t commit. Now, ten years later, heâ€™s about to give it up again for a piece of land. Nevada Britain, his neighbor, has just made him an offer he canâ€™t refuse: If heâ€™ll marry her, sheâ€™ll sign over a section of property that their families have been fighting over for a hundred years. Nevada refuses to explain why, but Cord knows the bargain is in his favor. He just has one conditionâ€”she has to sleep in his bed every night for as long as their doomed marriage lasts. Nevada only wants to maintain her familyâ€™s legacyâ€”and redeem herself for a wrong she did Cord years ago. But as she spends more time with her husband by necessity, she discovers something unexpectedâ€”a love so deep it takes her breath away.
