The much-loved Strong Family series by National Bestselling Author Niobia Bryant continues as the family revisits a romance from the past that is a cornerstone for their lasting legacy of love and ranching…
Logan Strong is new to the small rural town of Holtsville, South Carolina, and brings with him a Texas background of cattle ranching and horse wrangling. He's one sexy Black cowboy, something Ivy Child fights hard to ignore even as she aims her Colt .38 revolver at him when he offers her a ride home. Neither Logan nor Ivy are looking for love. He's a loner cowboy who enjoys his nomadic lifestyle, and she's experienced so much heartbreaking loss that she doesn't believe happiness is possible for her.
Danger and the brutality of racism come to Holtsville as a wealthy outsider hopes to scare away the Black townsfolk and claim their land for his future development plans. After having to rescue Ivy numerous times from near calamities, Logan offers her a marriage in name only to provide her with his protection. Secretly she's thankful to have more to rely on than her pistol and the solitude of her own company, so she accepts. Soon close quarters and an attraction neither can continue to deny leads to passion and romance that is hot and strong. With more than ever to fight to defend, Logan and Ivy join forces with the rest of the town to ensure no one or nothing will destroy Holtsville or their chance at love and happiness.
