When Lisette Pelletier answers an ad to become a physician in the frontier town of Willow Wood, Idaho, she knows her life will change forever. What she doesn’t expect is to fall in love with the U.S. Marshal whose life she saves on her way to town.
Federal Marshal Grayson Dutton spent his career protecting pioneers, chasing down bandits, settling disputes before they erupted into gunfire, and returning fire when needed. None of it prepared him for dealing with a feisty lady doc who can’t see when she’s in over her head.
When Grayson hears the gang of outlaws that attacked the stagecoach that brought Lisette to Willow Wood have targeted the lady doc, he’ll stop at nothing to protect her. Lisette doesn’t want to give the lawman the reins to her life. She came west to serve the people of Willow Wood, not hide under her bed in fear at the first sign of danger.
She certainly didn’t plan to fall for a long-legged lawman whose kisses make her dream of marriage, babies, and happily-ever-after, all the things that conflict with her call to medicine. Can she find a place in her life and her heart for love? Can Grayson tame the wild filly before she gets both of them killed?

Set in the 1890s Idaho, the storyline is about a young woman who answers a plea for a town doctor. She knows it won't be easy to be accepted being a woman, but she is confident she can win the town residents over. But, she doesn't count on the complication of meeting Grayson, the handsome retired marshall that just returned home.
The story has wonderful characters. Lisette is spunky, independent, and determined which drew me to her right away. Grayson's strength and willingness to help his father on the ranch and then want to protect Lisette was heartwarming.
There is a lot of suspense, intense action, and then tender moments to warm your heart.
A Lawman for Lisette is very well written in a style that's easy to read and the ending wrapped everything up nicely. I highly recommend reading it.
