Banks Montgomery takes his job as youngest sheriff ever elected in Three Rivers very seriously; the residents of the small town are his family and he takes care of them accordingly. Along with his small horse breeding operation, he's a man with a plan—one that doesn't include the distraction of a woman, least of all one that turns up out of nowhere and isn't what she seems.
Pregnant and abandoned in Three Rivers, Norah Clarke needs to come up with a plan, and fast. Fortunately, she's always been quick on her feet, and she and the town go way, way back. That doesn't, however, prepare her for the town's nosy (and devastatingly handsome) sheriff and all the surprising ways he makes her feel.
When the distraction Norah brings proves to have painful consequences, Banks will have to decide if his comfortable, predictable life is worth putting on the line for the sake of his heart.
**PLEASE NOTE: Lawful Heart does contain scenes of domestic violence and verbal abuse.**
This book is a part of the Hearts of Three Rivers: The Montgomerys series. Each book stands alone as a complete read, but features appearances from other family members who may have their own story to tell in a different book. Amity's stories can best be described as 'sweet western heat', and contain open door bedroom scenes, but no frank language.

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. That being the case has no bearing on tbe fact tbat I absolutely loved this book and the characters in it. Banks Montgomery is one of the great characters we already know and love from Three Rivers and along comes pregnant and abandoned Miss Clarke who steals this lawman's heart. Add in a cast of family and friends you will recognize if you have read any of the Three Rivers series and you know you are in for a great ride. Even though this book is part of a series it works well as a stand alone however, once you have read one you will want to read them all.
