Colorado Territory, 1868: It was about as rough-and-ready as the West could get, a place and time almost as dangerous as the men who left civilization behind, driven by a desire for land, gold a new life. Fort Lookout: It was a rugged outpost where soldiers, cattlemen and Indians lived on the edge of open warfare, the last place any woman in her right mind would choose to settle. Abby: She is everything a man should avoid—with a figure made for temptation, a face of beauty and an expression of stubborn determination. Colonel Bryce McGregor knew there was no room for such a woman at his fort or in his heart. But no matter how many obstacles he put in her path, Abby was determined to make a go of her father's store. And as she received proposal after proposal from his troops, Bryce realized the only man he could allow her to marry is himself.
