Confident and coolheaded, nothing shakes a Man of Defiance—except a woman he can’t resist...
Sarah Hawkins survived capture by the Sioux, but after her escape she faced public scorn. Now, she’ll do anything to start over, and the dusty town of Defiance promises the anonymity and security she needs. Before she melts into the shadows, though, it’s her mission to put a great injustice to rights, and that means jeopardizing her safety once more.

But this time, she’s not alone. Without meaning to, Sarah has fallen under the protection of Logan Taggert, a rough-and-tumble trader unused to caring for others—and yet unable to ignore the tempting, tenacious woman’s plight. Though she refuses to trust him, Logan won’t leave her side, keeping her one step ahead of danger…even as she takes hold of the very thing he never thought he’d risk: his heart.  (Goodreads) 

Set in Western American territory in 1875, this story introduces Sarah Hawkins. With her parents, she moved away from a safe Eastern home. A series of tragedies leaves her alone to fall prey to a dishonest man who becomes her husband to steal her inheritance. Then, Sarah becomes a captive bride of a cruel Sioux leader. When Logan Taggert meets her he’s intrigued by the combination of strength and frailty he sees in her. She’s often the target of men who intend rape and women who consider her to be a whore because of her treatment by the Sioux. Sarah’s strength carries her through her journey to unravel the forgeries and thefts she suspects her husband is guilty of. Taggert’s natural inclination to protect and help those who have experienced bullying and injustice leads him to become involved with Sarah. His attraction to her keeps him by her side until she finishes her mission and is able to overcome her fear of men, especially one as terrific as Taggert.
The romance between them is sweet because Taggert is protective, friendly, single-minded, and easy-going. Sometimes Sarah’s drama seems a little overdone…but that’s probably true of many historical romances. The supporting characters don’t appear too often, but their parts in the story are strong. You’ll be seething at Mr. Reimer, Mrs. Powell, Swift Elk, and others. You’ll like the kindness and humor of Jace Gage, Chayton, and Laughs-Like-Water.
