From the Publisher:
After his brother, a saloonkeeper, was found brutally slain, Jay McCallum came to town ready to accuse a winsome beauty -- Lauralee Parker! If Lauralee had her way, all the saloons in the great Northwest would be closed down. Her crusade was successful -- except for the prosperous saloon that McCallum was determined to save from her indignation. But their conflict could not quell their growing attraction for each other. Slowly, the proud, powerful man melted Lauralee's defiant heart...yet as she surrendered to a rich and wild desire, her joy was shadowed by the haunting mystery of McCallum's brother's death ... a mystery whose shocking outcome could forever destroy their love!
