Wade Mason had been imprisoned for a murder he did not commit. Brady Young had shot his own father in the back, blamed it on Wade, and took over Wade's land in a search for gold. While in prison Lily, from a bordello, had visited. Lily later died, but not before Wade found out that they had created a son. After nearly a year and a half in the Texas State Penitentiary at Huntsville, Wade escaped. Before the law found him, Wade planned to take his son away from the woman caring for his child, clear his name, and get his land back.
Callie Quinn promised Lily to raise the baby as her own. Matthew was about three months old when Wade showed up, covered in filth and shackled. There was only one man alive who knew the truth of what happened that fateful night. Wade and Callie planned to find him, somehow. Callie cared for Wade so much, that she took it upon herself to help Wade since she could get to Brady without any suspicions popping up. She was determined to help clear Wade's name, even against his wishes!
This book drew me into story on the first page. I read the entire book within one day. It is THAT good! The author made the feelings of both main characters clear when it came to the baby. I could actually FEEL the pain of each when they thought about losing custody of the baby to the other. Heidi Betts's writing talent burns as brightly as the sun! Highly recommended!
