She's no fool, she knows they need help to fight this bully trying to make them flee their town. But who can she get? These women are naturally scared of men. Then it hits her, Malachi Shaw.

His mom died, his dad was a deadbeat drunk and abusive, Malachi was like any kid would be coming from those kinds of circumstances. Angry and ending up on the wrong side of the law a time or two. That is until he found himself stowed away in the Harper barn. He was only 13 years old when he met Emma Chandler, but he knew then that his life would never be the same. He is convinced that she is his angel, and even though they are grown now, they keep in touch and he's vowed to protect her at any and all costs.
