A dozen men want to marry Nell Allistair, but she is smart enough to know it isn't her charm that intrigues them. With her husband's death she became the richest woman in the territory. Nell owns the saloon, the best ranch land in the valley and holds the mortgage on nearly every other property around. So far, Nell has held off her suitors by declaring she will not even consider remarriage until her year of mourning is up. Her time is running out.

Sheriff Grahame has no family. His love is for the people he's served for the last thirty years. When Nell does remarry, by law her new husband takes control of all she owns. If she marries the wrong man, the Sheriff's friends stand to lose all they have. More than that, the 'friend' Nell has allowed to escort her because he is 'just a friend,' has turned amorous and claims the inside track for marrying Nell.

Grahame doesn't like, or trust, that man at all. The old man has a unique solution. Before Nell married the wealthy older man, she had been in love with Grahame's Godson, Brenden Cassidy. Brenden developed cold feet and took off a week before their wedding. When Brenden sobered up and got out of a Texas jail, he returned to find Nell already wed to the very wealthy Tom Allistair. Brenden went a little wild and the next anyone heard rumor of him, he had escaped while facing a long sentence in Huntsville prison.

When Grahame caught up with him, he offered to keep silent on one condition. Brenden must prevent Nell from marrying her suitor. Nell hasn't forgiven Brenden for deserting her; Brenden still resents how she forgot him and took new vows so quickly. The old sparks lay just under the surface. How much will it take to make them burn again? Can a man blackmailed into wooing his old love prevent her from making the mistake that could destroy the people of Peace Valley?
