Dakota Territory, 1886
Sheriff Jake McCrery gave up gambling years ago; keeping the peace in Founder's Creek Township is all the challenge he needs. Until Stacy Blackwell arrives in town and soon becomes a frequent visitor to the Sheriff's office. Her crime? Diverting the Sheriff's attention with her beauty, charm and the mischievous light in her eyes that ignites a fire in Jake that can't be extinguished. He wants her as he'd never wanted anything in his life—enough to make one final gamble to win her heart.
Papa and I are off to watch gymnastics again tonight. He’s made it a habit of taking the girls out for supper afterwards and I’m not sure who enjoys it more, him or the girls.
I had a wonderful weekend—even though I spent a large amount of time working on our taxes—Hubby went up north fishing, so that meant I was in charge of the TV remote, I could stay up writing as late as I wanted (I’m a late night writer vs an early morning one), and I had a ‘girl’s shopping day’ where the granddaughters got their flower girl dresses for the wedding they’ll be in next August. To top it all off, DH brought me home fresh walleye. Life just doesn’t get better.
Have a wonderful week, and don’t let the time change get to you. It doesn’t care.
