Marcie Browder might have despised her miserable father, but she didn't kill him. Now, is she falling in love with the man who did? She married a guy just like her dear old dad. Drunk. Abusive. Unfaithful. So she divorced him and returned home to her family's ranch in West Texas to heal. Her hopes for peace vanish when she has a confrontation with her father-and later, he's found dead. Murdered. The new ranch foreman, Tucker McGee, a man who unsettles her in ways she doesn't want to admit, is the prime suspect. Marcie soon learns the people she trusted most-family and friends-are hiding secrets that will change her life, forever. And they know something they're not telling her about Tucker McGee. He sits a horse well-very well-but he's no cowboy. Marcie's reluctant to accept his help, but he's hard to resist . . . in more ways than one. Is Tucker her only ally, or is he just another dangerous man with the power to hurt her? Ken Casper is the author of more than 25 novels, including AS THE CROW DIES, book one of The Jason Crow West Texas Mystery Series. He and his wife raise horses on a small ranch in Texas.
