She can survive anything except the men who love her.
Perris Dalton doesn’t need a man. She left southwest Wyoming broken, so transformed by fighting cancer even her big hunk of a lawman couldn’t make love to her. Now she’s back.
Her new job is to mitigate conflicts with raptors at a power plant’s coal mine. There’s no reason for her path to cross her ex-husband’s. But when an environmental demonstration inexplicably centers in on her, Sheriff Noah Dalton steps in, confident he can win back the woman who once walked out on him.
As the demonstration spirals into personal attacks, Noah, Perris’s father the sheep rancher, and her brother the college student hatch a secret plot to protect her.
In an epic contest of wills with a lone woman survivor used to solving her own problems, and three Western heroes just as determined to save her, all hell starts to break loose.
As she studied the man she was still married to for the next little while, the man she loved with every fiber of her being and yet couldn’t bear to live with any longer, she began to shake. The quaking got so bad, she shot a hand out to grasp the railing to keep herself from toppling backwards down the stairs.
She had thought determination alone would see her through. She hadn’t realized it would be so hard to finally go through with it. She hadn’t known just how much she’d come to depend on Noah. She loved him, this man who was still unaware that she studied him so intently, while she grieved so fiercely, longed so desperately for things to be different. She wanted to stop this farce, this divorce, this halving of what had once been a wonderful, marvelous melding of two into one.
Their marriage. Their blessed union. Gone up in smoke, and blown away by the wind. Their marriage that had dissolved into a horrifying routine of patient and caretaker, the well and the sick, amidst a blur of doctors and operating rooms and bottles and bottles of medication.
Perris would do this, divorce Noah and dissolve their marriage, in order to live. When the choice came down to her husband or her life, being smothered in pity or taking her destiny back in her own hands, she chose life. She wanted to live. She desperately wanted to live. And if that meant leaving Noah, her other half, behind, she would do it.
She would cut herself in half in order to live. She loved Noah Dalton with all her heart. But she would leave him. In order to live.

Christi Williams bio and links:
My fiction is contemporary, so the settings and the characters are completely modern and struggle with today’s issues. But the men and women in my writing leave a big footprint, because their personalities and their solutions to problems hark back to the iconic days which really don’t exist anymore. My characters truly live by the Code of the West.
Christi Williams writes contemporary sensual romance set in Wyoming. My strong heroines love cowboys and lawmen! I love hearing from readers, so please contact me.
