HE HAD HIS PRIME SUSPECT IN CUSTODY, BUT SOMETHING DIDN'T ADD UP…Small-town sheriff Roan Harley arrested plain-as-all-get-out Mary Yancy because he couldn't afford not to.

Not to mention her lovely eyes couldn't disguise the fact that she was not only innocent, but in dire need of protection. His protection?
