Descripción de editorial
To Leah Morgan's mind, the last thing her hometown of Defiance needs is another gunman stalking its dusty streets-especially one as sweet-talking and fine looking as Jace Gage. Despite her warnings, the infuriating man seems determined to meddle in her life and risk his own, all for a town that can't be saved and a heart she locked away long ago.
Professional bounty hunter Jace Gage has cleaned up plenty of corrupt towns in his lifetime, and he knows he can handle whatever Defiance's thugs have to offer. But the town's most lawful citizen is another story. Beautiful, willful and exasperating at every turn, Leah is the one person capable of bringing the ruthless gunslinger to his knees-and capturing his desire with a single kiss...

Levine's third Men of Defiance western (after February's Audrey and the Maverick) offers plenty of ambience but no surprises. Infamous bounty hunter and Civil War veteran Jace Gage rides into lawless Defiance, engaged by the federal government to rid the "B-movie western town" of its ruthless sheriff, Bill Kemp, and his gang of criminal deputies. Jace's treacherous Southern wife had him hanged three years before, and having cheated his own death, he's not shy about doling it out to anyone standing in his way. His protective hackles rise when he saves Leah Morgan from assault in the middle of the street. Fiercely independent, she resists Jace's attempts to move her to safer territory by demonstrating her ability to out-fish, out-camp, and out-track him. Clich s roll past like tumbleweeds as the two venture toward mutual trust and love.
