To the citizens of Mineral Springs, Janice Harrison looks like a dowdy schoolmarm.
Then, Peter Mulloney catches a glimpse of Janice’s silhouette and is surprised by hot desire. But, he has no time for a woman. He’s working to finance the purchase of a mountain of gold and proving he has no need for his wealthy, corrupt family.
All Janice cares about is supporting and caring for her fragile little sister Betsy—and keeping her own secrets hidden. But beneath the silvery Texas moon, rugged Mulloney introduces excitement and danger and tender kisses. A man like Mulloney could keep her and Betsy safe… or shatter her soul, leaving her worse off than before.
