Left alone by her new husband, Cheyenne Edson has carved out a life for herself in the Utah Territory. Since her husband has not returned in three long years, and the word around town is that she's alone, she's become the target of every foul-mouthed, randy cowhand around. She has nothing to protect herself from these predators but her old shotgun and her half-breed dog, Demon.
When the enigmatic stranger, Theodore "Tipp" McCloud, comes to her cabin and offers his help, Cheyenne's first reaction is to draw on him. Tipp leaves, but he takes a piece of Cheyenne with him. She can't get the handsome stranger out of her mind.
Cheyenne needn't worried. Tipp isn't going anywhere--not without the woman who has a walk like slow-pouring honey and a voice to match. He vows nothing or no one will keep him from tasting her honey--not threats of her shotgun, attacks by her demon dog, so aptly named or to take on the men who surround her like flies on Sherbet--Hell, he's determined that prize is his, no matter the cost!
